Sarah Moriarity is the kind of student who doesn’t like to sit behind a desk at school day after day.
“I can’t sit still. I have to be doing something with my hands,” the pink-haired 12th grader said one morning last week.
Moments earlier, under the watchful eye of chef-instructor Trevor Randle, Moriarity and her classmates used large, sharp knives to break down two whole salmon into filets that became lunch for students and teachers at Maple Ridge Secondary School.

Today’s CEOs and business leaders are getting younger and younger – and the founders of “CCL,” a brand-new Maple Ridge start-up, are no exception.
Camryn Bishop, Caleb McCreedy and Logan Scott are the first and second graders behind CCL, a “company” which specializes in the sale of crafts, cookies, and lemonade. The acronym comes from both the names of the founders, and the products they sell.

Students with Albion Elementary’s Grade 6 and 7 leadership club are making a positive difference, both locally and around the globe.
Under the guidance of teacher Barry Henderson, the 40-member club has been working tirelessly on fundraising activities that are having a positive impact on those outside of the school’s walls.
At an early Monday morning assembly, the club handed out cheques to the Friends In Need Food Bank and Albion’s Parent Advisory Council (PAC).

Randy Uttaro maintains a focused look on his face while the trowel in his hands works through a repetitive series of motions – swipe, slap, scoop, repeat. His hands move tentatively at first, but as he starts to get comfortable, mud slides off the trowel and onto a brick quicker and quicker.
