COVID-19 News / April 9th


In times like these, when we deal with the Covid-19 crisis, we face a new question: How do we create a learning community when we can’t be together?

Our ability to inspire students will be one of the most important aspects of our daily routine. As authorities worldwide attempt to slow the spread of the coronavirus, more than 420 million students on five continents have found themselves facing the challenges of digital learning.


We wish all of our students, parents, guardians, staff and international agents a #SafeMonth. You can count on our school to continue developing our students’ best skills, inspiring them to follow their dreams into a more optimistic future.


#StayHome  #StayCreative  #StaySafe  #StayPositive

To: Canada Royal Arts High School

Good morning Independent School Leaders,

Please share this information below with your school communities.


Independent Schools COVID-19 Update – April 8, 2020



Positive Story of the Day –  It’s the International Day of Pink and the Tillicum Annex School in Vancouver is celebrating – staff emailed their students and their families to encourage them to mark this day through reflection of its purpose and of course, wear pink! Staff and students are wearing pink at home to encourage young people to challenge social norms and stand up against bullying towards their 2SLGBTQIA+ peers.

New Cases  –  Today, Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry and Health Minister Adrian Dix announced 45 new cases of COVID-19 in B.C. bringing the total number of cases to 1336.  Note: 838 people have now fully recovered that’s a 63 % recovery rate. Here is the link to where the joint statement will be posted on the Ministry of Health newsroom later today.
