On January 15th, thousands of students, educators, and citizens across British Columbia and Canada will recognize the struggle for civil rights fought by Black and racialized Canadians.

​Commemorating the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr., Black Excellence Day is both a day of education and remembrance, and an invitation to a necessary conversation about racial justice.  RBSS will recognize this important day on Friday, January 14.


When students arrive on Monday, January 10, 2022 the students are expected to use their designated entrance and exits only.





With the accumulation of snow last night and road conditions as they are, schools will be closed today and busing will be cancelled (January 6, 2022).



RBSS students at work in Meadow Park in the new Royal Bay Community.  Our students and staff are giving back to the local community that is so supportive of our students.  Over the years we have enjoyed great supports and relations with our neighbors.  We are large presence here in Royal Bay and appreciate the beautiful surroundings.  Many programs, staff and academies have signed up their classes for a community clean up event.  Each Friday, students from RBSS will walk the neighboring parks and pick up any loose debris left behind.  We appreciate the ability to learn in such a beautiful area and are committed to keeping it clean and positive.  Thanks to everyone involved!  Our wonderful Girls Lacrosse Academy cleaned up the park and area on January 14- Thanks Team!
