Canley Cup

The CANley Cup is a district-wide event that aims to raise non-perishable foods and money for the community. The food and money raised will help provide food access to families, seniors, new Canadians, not to mention breakfast and lunch programs in Vancouver, North Shore, Burnaby, and New Westminster. Schools are encouraged to hold friendly competitions with the neighbouring schools to promote donation. The school that collects the most cans will win the CANley Cup trophy. (Number of cans raised are scaled to school population, allowing a fair competition between large school populations and smaller ones).

Killarney Student Government would like to encourage staff and students to bring canned items and/or donations ($1 = 3 cans) to their last block class (1-3), the class that collects the most cans and donations will win a pizza party! Donations accepted November 21st to December 9th.

If you or your family would like to donate online please go to SchoolCashOnline

CyberTeens Year 2 Survey – Joint Project with UBC and VSB/Killarney 

The CyberTeens survey will be on Wednesday December 7th, on a morning FIT period daily schedule. Purpose. We know that your phones and devices are one of the most important things you own. Unfortunately, emerging research indicates that spending a lot of time online everyday can lead to outcomes such as poor sleep, struggles with mood and anxiety, as well as strained relationships with family. The latest research suggests that this reliance on technology can’t always be helped, as adolescents form deep attachments to digital devices. These attachments might help serve social goals, despite research supporting the relative importance of face-to-face interactions. We see students as the experts on this topic, and we’re hoping to learn from them! Their answers will help inform important research, as well as help to contribute to effective programming to help teens with technology use. This is a 4-year project instead of a one-time snapshot and all information is private and confidential.

For completing the survey, students will be entered into a draw for a $200 gift card. If you do not wish to have your child complete the survey, please return the form withdrawing from participation in the survey. The 40-minute survey can be done on a phone, and all links to the survey will be posted on TEAMS on the morning of December 7th.
