Wishart Elementary will be supporting our local community in two ways during this holiday season.
Stuff the Bus
Starting December 1st we will be asking students to bring in items for Hamper baskets which can include toys for children ages 7-11 and non-perishable food items. These items will be picked up by the BC Transit Santa Bus on December 5th and delivered to the local food bank.
Goldstream Food Bank
While we never charge for tickets to the Christmas concert, we gladly accept donations of non-perishable food items instead. Any food items that we receive the night of the concert and going forward to December 22 will be picked up by the Goldstream Food Bank on the afternoon of December 22nd to be distributed within in our local community
At the beginning of each school year we send home consent forms for parents to sign in order for your student to have access to fieldtrips, internet useage, fresh grade etc. This year the Sooke School District has set up a new electronic consent portal for parents. If you have not already done so, please use this link https://consent.sd62.bc.ca/ to sign your student(s) up for the following consents:
- Fresh Grade
- General School Fieldtrips (allows for neighbourhood walks with buddies etc.)
- Google Apps for Education
- Internet Access
- School Cash Online

Parents volunteering for field trips or classroom work require a Criminal Record Check when working with our students. This needs to be completed and on file at the school office prior to volunteering.
Driving any students in a private vehicle also requires a completed Criminal Records Check as well as a driver’s abstract from ICBC and a copy of your valid driver’s license and insurance. These are now required for all volunteers when driving for field trips and must be in to the office at least 24 hours PRIOR to driving or attending a field trip. Please see the link with information below.
Thank you again for volunteering your time so our children can have the best educational opportunities.
