Re: Dyslexia and autism spectrum disorder on the rise among B.C. students, Oct. 19
Getting insufficient assistance with reading is not the first or most difficult hurdle young, bright and eager children encounter in their education. They first have to be identified as having difficulty reading. With overwhelmed teachers, underfunding and wait-lists as long as three years, many students are in middle school before they are offered any type of special reading assistance.
Imagine you are 11 years old and you...Read More
Lysa Mair, one of our parents, sent us this note, and we are thrilled to share it!
WARNING: Parents Blatantly Beaming With Pride!
I am so proud I feel like my heart could burst! My son accomplished something I never could in highschool… and there was a time people believed he wouldn’t be able to either. Today I sat with my husband and we watched our son get up out of his chair, walk over and receive a certificate for being on the Principle’s List! It’s higher than being on the honour roll and would...
Two weeks from today, the first day of the new school year will be finished.
It will have marked the beginning of an exciting new school year for all of us at James Cameron School, our 35th year of operation! It will also mark the end of this year’s summer vacation. We hope it has been a relaxing, fun and above all safe summer for all! We were able to enjoy lots of sunshine and warm summer weather. When we come back to school, one of the most common questions will be “What did you do this summer?” We look...

The calendar suddenly says August, and that means that September is just around the corner. Along with many other parents, your thoughts may be on what the coming school year will bring. If your worries and concerns are kicking back in, if you are wondering if there is an alternative solution for your struggling son or daughter, an alternative that...Read More
The Beauty of Generosity
“THANK YOU” seems so inadequate to express the depth of our gratitude for the generous giving James Cameron School received on Saturday evening! Over $40,000 was raised at our first Gala. There are many who deserve our thanks, and so it is with a heart full of gratitude that I pen this expression of deep thanks to everyone who helped make our Gala the roaring success that it was.To those who contributed talent, to those who contributed donations and time or money thank you! Your generosity is truly beautiful. To everyone who attended the Gala, thank you! For those of you that could not attend I have included a link to a video of our guest speaker, Greg Epp. Greg attended JCS in the 90s and gave an inspiring speech. Warm regards, Penny Shepherd-Hill, Principal https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U8HMF639UiU
