Hello everyone,

I have had a lot of questions regarding the Provincial Dogwood Scholarship.   This scholarship was created to support students that are taking a combination of 4 courses in grades 11 & 12 that teach skills that will lead into post secondary and a possible future career.  If you are registered in an Asset program you should apply.  The elective combo areas that meet the requirements are Physical Activity, Business, Tech Ed, Visual & Performing Arts, Hospitality & Tourism, and Home Economics.  This is a great opportunity for students that plan on going to College and or planning on completing their Red Seal or Apprenticeship.   This is not for students that are moving forward in areas such as Humanities, Sciences, and STEM.  Students only have to be achieving a minimum 2.5 GPA and they can earn money to support their future plans.  Please complete the form and hand it into Mrs. Lewis.  If you have questions about applying for this scholarship please come see Mrs. Lewis anytime.

Hand in Hand Support Program

This popular, in-demand program is designed to provide meaningful, weekly support to people ages 16+ who are struggling with an eating disorder. Each participant is matched with a trained volunteer mentor* who offers compassion, judgment-free listening, and acceptance, as well as guidance in setting positive goals and boundaries. We emphasize the importance of self-care, and help our participants to explore what “recovery” means for them personally.

Hand in Hand is available either in-person or via Skype, and is available to to people of all genders and backgrounds, ages 16+. It’s free, and there is no limit to how long you wish to receive support. To learn more, or to register, please visit our webpage:https://www.lookingglassbc.com/hand-in-hand/

Individualized Support Service

This new, customized program is similar in some ways to Hand in Hand, except that all of the support takes place in a private, anonymous, online setting. Each participant is given their own private forum space where they can safely share their struggles,  goals, hopes, and triggers with a team of trained volunteer mentors.* Participants can access the forum space 24/7, and their posts will receive an encouraging, supportive, thoughtful message from one or more volunteers within 24 hours.

ISS is available to people of all genders and backgrounds, ages 14+. It’s free, and there is no limit to how often, or for how long you wish to receive support. To learn more, or to register, please visit our webpage: https://www.lookingglassbc.com/individualized-support-service/

*Our volunteer mentors are required to pass both a Criminal Record and a Vulnerable Persons background check.
