We look forward to another exciting academic year at Broadlands this year. As our school continues to grow in size, our 7th portable is scheduled to arrive in the next few weeks. It will be placed behind portable 4.
Broadlands Grade 1 & 2 Students Sing to Honour Veterans of The Royal Canadian Legion
Wednesday, April 20, CTV arrived at our school to videotape 2 classes who will be doing an audio recording of a French song for Remembrance Day. Mme Manu, one of our Music Teachers came up with the idea of recording a song. M. Chung’s class and Mme Petitpas’ class will have their classes recorded as the students sing “Je me souviens”, a song performed at our Remembrance Day Assembly in the fall. An engineer will be setting up professional equipment at Broadlands P.S. to record vocals and to experience what it is like to be the singer behind the microphone. The purpose of this recording project is two-fold. Firstly, to expose our students to the process of creating music, recording music and sharing music on both a local and global scale. Secondly, since this is a song about Remembrance Day, we would like to give a portion of the proceeds generated from digital downloads (e.g. iTunes) to support The Royal Canadian Legion’s Homeless Veteran’s Assistance Fund. Here is the link to the news item:

New Parking Signs on Broadlands Blvd
The city has installed new parking signs in front of the school. There is no parking in the dedicated 'Bus Safety Zone between the bus entrance and exit between 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. Additional parking has been added both on the west and east sides of the school. Please remember to park in designated areas. Thank you for following all parking rules. Click here for a map outlining the changes: bus Loading Zone.pdf
Broadlands Kiss & Ride Program
With the cooperation of Officer Neil, our Community Liaison Police Officer, Broadlands has started a Kiss n’ Ride in front of our school. On December 7, we officially launched the program. Parent volunteers meet cars just West of the bus loop entrance, and our Grade 6 Safety Patrol students escort students to their playground. This helps to keep the traffic flow moving and to reduce/eliminate the need for cars to park, either in front of the school or in the parking lot. We need two more parent volunteers one day a week from 8:15-8:30 a.m. to ensure that the Kiss & Ride will take place every day. If you are available, please contact M Duwyn. We do want to ensure that we keep the area around our school as safe as possible for our community. A new Green Kiss & Ride sign has been added to the area, which reads "STUDENT PICK-UP AND DROP-OFF AREA"
A few reminders:
· Pull up as far west as you can in the Kiss n’ Ride area to let other cars in
· Please be respectful of our neighbours: do not block, park or turn around in their driveways.
- Please avoid making a 3 point turn in the bus loop entrance or exit; try Coral Cove Crescent to circle around if you are coming from the east
- Please avoid using the school parking lot for drop offs, start to make use of the Kiss 'n Ride!
· Please leave a few minutes earlier as we all adjust to the changes
