|On Your Mark! – Free diploma exam tutorial sessions for PWPSD students|
Starting this weekend, students in Peace Wapiti Public School Division (PWPSD) can begin preparing for their upcoming diploma exams by participating in six free tutorial sessions offered on three consecutive Saturdays in January. A final session, Science 30, will take place on the last Wednesday of the month. There is no need to register – students should simply show up ready to review and ask questions. PWPSD also provides free lunches and snacks during the sessions.
"The full-day tutorials, known throughout the division as 'On Your Mark!' sessions, provide structured time for students to focus on studying diploma course material," says Peace Wapiti Academy (PWA) Principal Wanda Gerard. "A concise overview of the curriculum is combined with opportunities for students to redefine concepts, receive clarification, complete sample questions, and be exposed to a variety of question types.
"The rigorous review helps students feel more confident in their understanding of concepts, eases their stress, and also helps them identify areas of focus that will enhance their additional studying and review leading up to the exams. As a learning community, we extend our appreciation to the PWPSD high school teachers who facilitate the sessions, and give a huge shout-out to the participating students."
*Please note that the tutorials on January 18 and 25, previously scheduled for GPRC, have been moved to Peace Wapiti Academy, as noted in red below.

|Kev's Kids provides funding for PARDS programming|
Local children's charity Kev's Kids has donated $2,720 to help fund Peace Area Riding for the Disabled Society (PARDS) programming for a group of students at Whispering Ridge Community School (WRCS). This school year, the WRCS group is visiting the PARDS facility on a weekly basis until the end of February.
WRCS School Counsellor and Inclusive Education lead Kasia Pfefferle (right) joined Lisa Neville (left), Vice-Chair of Kev's Kids, for a cheque presentation at the Rock 97.7 radio station on January 21, 2020.
The organization's namesake and Rock 97.7 host Kevin Albers campaigns for the cause during his radio show, raising more than a million dollars to date in support children. Many thanks Kev's Kids for supporting our students.
