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.

The Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows Board of Education is very concerned about the negative impact this provincial budget will have on our students, staff and families. Our school district has already made service-level reductions in the amount of $8M over the past two budget years, and has reduced staffing by 70 positions over and above reductions triggered by enrolment decline. The recent feedback our Board has received from education partners, parents and students has confirmed the negative impact of these deep reductions.

Working at the Salvation Army Caring Place during the holiday season had a profound effect on a group of Leadership students at Thomas Haney Secondary, and with a little help from local businesses, they want to do more for the homeless people of Maple Ridge.
“It was kind of scary at first. We didn’t know what to expect,” said student Taylor Beare.
But she said all the seven girls in her group were moved by the people and their stories.

High school is couldn’t be a more socially awkward time for teenagers. Just five short years from adulthood, their lives go threw enormous changes between the time they timidly find their lockers on that first day of secondary school to finishing Grade 12 finals and crossing the threshold into adulthood.
Along the way, teachers help guide students to make smart decisions, to think about the future, and to trust in themselves.

In a small ceremony at the Maple Ridge secondary gymnasium on Thursday afternoon, Bobbi Berkey gathered with her family and her fastball coach, and signed to play ball on scholarship in Texas.
The talented pitcher has been hearing from U.S. schools since Grade 10, and she finally chose one – Blinn College in Brenham.
