Media Release 

– Key Learning Centre in SD60 Selected as Provincial Online School –

June 22nd, 2022 –

The online learning school (Key Learning Centre) of School District 60 Peace River North has recently been selected by the Ministry of Education & Childcare as one of 18 Provincial Online Learning Schools (POLS).

The Key Learning Centre has already been providing exceptional online and hybrid learning opportunities to students across the province for many years now and is pleased to be selected to continue to meet the diverse needs of our learners.

The Key Learning Centre remains open to registrations for our K-9 programs as well as for individual courses for our Grade 10 – 12 and adult students.

“Since 1984 when this School District became one of nine distance education centres the alternative programs offered to provide flexibility  in learning outside the typical school building have continued to expand. The Key Learning Centre supports rural and remote learners as well as those who need a different pathway to education.  The Centre provides programs for learners of all ages.  Becoming a provincial online school expands the reach of our excellent programs and allows us to continue to be a provincial leader in expanded educational opportunities.  “
– Helen Gilbert Board Chair
“Given the experience that our staff at the Key Learning Centre have, we are confident in our ability to continue to offer a number of online opportunities to students across the province.  Our attention to great content and responsive communication serves our students and families well.”

– Stephen Petrucci, Superintendent of Schools

Questions can be directed to Sean Thomas, Principal of the Key Learning Centre

Re.  Community Support for Bert Bowes Track & Field Upgrades

On Friday June 3rd at 12:00pm, there will be a brief recognition ceremony to celebrate the significant upgrades to the Bert Bowes Track & Field.  It will take place at the Bert Bowes track in conjunction with the annual elementary track and field meet. In the event of inclement weather, it will take place in the Bert Bowes gym.

Invitees include many community sponsors, the Board of Trustees, School & District administration.  Thanks to the dedication and leadership of community member Curtis Whitford, supported by the Bert Bowes PAC and administration, along with remarkable community sponsorship, we now have a top notch facility for use by schools and the community.

Students in the NPSS Senior Alternate program asked if they could send a thank you to the community. We’ve included their message and photos from their recent project below.
The Senior Alternate Program at NPSS recently organized a project to raise funds and collect supplies for the FSJ Warming Centre. With the generous help of our community we managed to raise $1,450 through bottle drive and cash donations. We also received donations like kitchen items, non-perishable food, and warm clothing. Along with the donations and a cheque for $1200, we purchased supplies such as hygiene products, socks, and laundry detergent for the Centre. We sincerely thank the bottle depot staff (FSJ Return-It) for their amazing work. We would also like to thank Home Hardware for spreading our message as well as businesses and members of our community for coming together to support the Warming Centre.
