Summit the Bay
This weekend, hundreds of grades 9–12 students from across BC are gathering at Royal Bay Secondary for the Summit at the Bay, a high-energy weekend of learning skills that will prepare students for an uncertain future. http://rethinkthinking.ca/summit-at-the-bay-2018

Based on inquiry learning — with guest speakers in mental health, sustainability and Aboriginal issues — the Summit offers a chance for students to dive deep into their own personal interests, guided by adult mentors in the business community. Plus there’s theatre, food trucks, dancing and musical entertainment. What’s not to love?

This event is usually $75, but our district has purchased 30 tickets for the students at Royal Bay and there are still some available. Get yours while you still can!

Hello Royal Bay Families. There are a number of students who have not paid their course fee for the first semester and athletic participation fees.
These fees are just for students participating in classes with fees or on sports teams this year. There will be second invoices sent out in report cards for outstanding fees.

You are welcome to pay on line at https://sd62.schoolcashonline.com by cheques payable to SD#62,or cash in the school office.


In 2016, Royal Bay Secondary began a ‘School Travel Planning’ process; a focused method aiming to increase the number of students and families who travel actively to school and decrease traffic congestion around the school site.

‘Active travel’ is choosing modes of transportation that use our bodies. By walking, biking, taking transit or using a ‘Drive to Five’ location we will create a safer school environment, increase our children’s ability to sit, focus and learn, address mental, physical and emotional health concerns that are present for many families today, create a strong connected community and show appreciation for the natural spaces around us.

Please consider the attached ‘Best Routes’ map to find your walking or cycling route, your nearest transit stops or your nearest ‘Drive to Five’ location.

Please find attached below more information, including a route map.
