Wahoo!  We did it!  

Through determination, resilience and strength we have reached the end of the 2020-21 school year.  Well done teachers!

We profoundly hope that you are able to take time for yourself, to rest and recover from a most difficult school year.  

We also want to acknowledge, and congratulate, our fellow teachers who have retired this year.  We wish you all the best in the next chapters in your lives but want you to know that you will be missed.

Here's to the hazy, lazy days of summer!  See you in September when we trust will be returning to a 'near' normal life.





 Offers for BCTF members:




 Our hearts are heavy

Celebrated annually on, or around, Valentine's Day, Have a Heart Day is a child and youth-led reconciliation campaign to help ensure First Nations children get the services they need to grow up safely at home, get a good education, be healthy, and be proud of who they are.

Social Justice Action Groups

The BCTF’s province-wide social justice network includes seven social justice action groups. Each action group is composed of four members from the provincial Committee for Action on Social Justice (CASJ), and they are all classroom teachers.

The purpose of the action groups is to provide information, lesson ideas, and professional support for classroom teachers. Each action group creates discrete web pages covering the areas for which they are responsible.

The action groups are listed below and include links to their web pages:
