Welcome to all new students and welcome back to all returning students.

Courses begin on Tuesday, September 4th.

If you are new to St. Gabriel we request that you complete our school orientation course first.  This short course will give you a better understanding of how our school operates, how to best complete your courses, and most important - how to get the help you need from your teachers!  Once you have completed the orientation course you will have access to the other courses you will be taking with us this year.

To have a great start to the school year, please make sure to come in to the school and talk with your teachers!!

School hours for the first week of school (September 4th to 7th) are:

Tuesday and Thursday, 8:00 am to 3:30 pm
Wednesday, 8:00 am to 5:30 pm.  From 3:00 to 5:30 pm is our School Open House! All school staff will be available to meet with you. We invite you to come on in with your parents or friends and show off our great school to others in the community.

Core Courses Weekly Seminars

Make sure to talk to your teachers about weekly course seminars.  Course seminars are not mandatory, however our tracking of student success indicates that students who make the effort to attend their course seminars every week experience a 10% or better increase in their final course mark when compared to the students who do not attend their course seminars every week.

If you any questions about courses, what you can do to successfully complete and pass your courses, or are just not sure how things work or what you should be doing, make sure to talk with Mr David Feist (Principal) or Mrs Angela Gauthier (Vice-Principal).

Looking forward to another great year at St. Gabriel!!

Orange Shirt Day - Join us Friday 28th September, 2018

Orange Shirt Day is a growing movement of reconciliation, and legacy of the 2013 St. Joseph Mission residential school commemoration event, held in Williams Lake, B.C.  It grew out of a former student’s account of having her brand-new orange shirt taken away on her first day of school.

Wearing an Orange Shirt is meant to recognize the harm done to residential school students, and show a commitment to the principle that every child matters.

A date in September was chosen because it is the time of year when children were taken from their homes to residential schools, and because it is an opportunity to set the stage for anti-racism and anti-bullying policies for the coming school year.

Orange Shirt Day is an opportunity for First Nations, local governments, schools, and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come.
