Final Film Study Notice - The Last Samurai

Hello All,

We wanted to send a note home to let you know that for our final look at the Edo period in Japan we have chosen to show the film The Last Samurai. This film will provide a cinematic look at the fall of the Samurai class, something we have been discussing when considering the transition from the Edo period into the Meiji restoration.

This film is rated 14A in Canada, and does contain scenes of realistic violence, something that was inherent in the Samurai lifestyle and important to understanding their worldview. You can access more detailed information on the content of the film at the following links:

Thanks so much,

Bamfield 2013 Parent Information Meeting! Wednesday June 19th @ 6:30pm

It is our pleasure to invite you to our upcoming parent information meeting for the Bamfield 2013 trip. We will be heading to the coast on Sunday, September 22nd, and returning on Friday September 27th. 

We will meet at 6:30pm on Wednesday, June 19th to discuss the details of the trip, distribute information booklets and consent forms, and answer any questions you may have. It is very important that you attend this meeting!

Due to the nature of this trip and because the beginning of grade 9 is extremely busy, we are looking forward to starting this process early. 

Forms will be due back at the school no later than June 26th, 2013, and will be posted here once finalized.
