Daily Physical Activity
The BC Ministry of Education has begun an initiative to keep BC’s students active and healthy. Arbutus Global embraces this and encourages students to be active on a daily basis.
Announcements are made over the PA daily about sports opportunities, games and practices. We also have a sports board outside the office that is updated regularly advising students and parents of various schedules and games.
