We look forward to another exciting academic year at Broadlands this year. As our school continues to grow in size, our 7th portable recently arrived and has been set in place behind portable 4.
Spring Fair - Saturday May 28
Please join us for our Spring Fair this Saturday May 28, from 10-2! Our School Advisory Council is working tio make it a huge success!
Outdoor Learning Centre
Good news! Construction will begin this week on our Outdoor Learning Centre (currently the SK yard and Bus Unloading Area). Attached, you will find a copy of the construction plan. The workers will put up a large 6’ tall construction fence to divide the area and will start on the west side. The east side will still be in use for students drop off. Outdoor Learning Centre.pdf
The work is expected to start May 26 and will be done in 2 phases:
Phase 1 - the work will start on the west side of the asphalt divider. The work will include extending the fence, adding the new gate on the east side, adding an art wall, preparing the ground and the installation of tractor tires and wooden posts. This will take place over 2 weeks.
Phase 2 - the work will continue on the east side of the asphalt divider and will include the preparation of the area, the addition of an outdoor classroom with 6’ log benches, cedar plank seating, a sand area with four 7’ posts for a tarp, plus large tin stock tanks for planting.
The entire area will be covered with cedar mulch. Planting of large trees and shrubs will take place in the fall. This is expected to start mid-June and continue for 2 weeks. Thank you to those families who have helped by giving a donation to this project!

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
