Bowen Island Community School is pleased to announce the Board of Directors for 2022/23 who were nominated and elected at the recent AGM: Lusunga Kayani, Helen Wallwork, Sarah Winny, Tammy Brockmeyer, Pernille Nielsen and Joan Vyner. Sarah Haxby, community school coordinator and Scott Slater, principal, are ex-officio board members.

As Covid restrictions were gradually lifted in 2021/22, the CSA Board was delighted to be able to offer the Christmas Craft Fair and the Elements of Bowen Youth Art Show and Auction in partnership with the Hearth Gallery. Thanks to our partner, Bowen Island Recycling Depot, for once again inviting the CSA to participate in the refundable program.

A special thanks to the Seymour Bay Foundation for a significant grant this year. These funds will be used to purchase much needed equipment for BICS including some new tables, two wireless headset mics, a contribution to the new playground equipment, as well as supporting some on-going programs including the community garden and community cultural connection.

The Board is looking forward to inviting the community to have fun at the ‘Turkey Trot’ - an all ages family fun dance on Friday, Oct. 7. In late October, families will be encouraged to attend a social media literacy session to learn how to keep our young people safe online.

The Christmas Craft Fair is set for Sunday, Dec. 4. These events need volunteer committee members to ensure their success. If you would like to join the fun, please contact us bowencsa@gmail.com.

Enjoy the summer and see you in September!
