Internet Safety

We all hear about Internet Safety on an almost daily basis.
From cyber bullying to internet scams; from sexting to cyber privacy, most of us are directly or indirectly confronted with the safety and dangers of the internet

To make our students aware of these, and more topics regarding internet safety, there will be a workshop on Monday, April 3rd, from 1-3 pm.
Students and staff are encouraged to bring their devices, as they will be used to demonstrate safety features.

There will be a similar session for parents from 6:30-8:30 pm in the HSS Library.
Pizza and refreshments will be provided.

Hazelton Secondary Parent Advisory Council

Every school has a PAC, a Parent Advisory Council, where you as a parent, can have your voice heard regarding the education of your children.
It is no different at Hazelton Secondary school: we also have a PAC.

It is worth everybody’s while to attend PAC meetings, to stay informed about school matters, upcoming need for help from parents or discussions about concerns and dreams for our school.
Because a school is not just a building where we learn math, English, Gitxsan or socials.
It’s a place where we learn about life, about friendship, about working and playing together, about our strengths and weaknesses and how to overcome adversity.
It’s a place where we grow from children into adults.

Please take note of our new PAC Members:

Chair: Helene Paranich
Vice Chair: Arveen Vij
Treasurer: Andrea Vickers
Secretary: Maurice Yee

And make some time in your schedule to attend the next PAC meeting, which is scheduled for January 17th at 5:30 pm.
We hope to see you there!
