Principal's Message


On behalf of the staff of Fernie Secondary, it is my pleasure to welcome students to the 2018/2019 school year.  As always, the new school year will have in store many challenges and exciting opportunities.  We look forward to another successful year, focusing on our school goal of enabling all students to cross the stage at graduation with dignity, purpose and options.  And while high school is always busy, it is my sincerest wish that every student finds time to get involved in the many activities that happen here (clubs, sports teams, student council etc.).  Together, we will continue to build on our new Code of Conduct (PRIDE) and create a caring school community.

To parents, I want to thank-you for choosing to send your children to Fernie Secondary.  I assure you that we take the responsibility of providing the best possible education to our students seriously and that we are excited to have the opportunity to work with your children to help prepare them for their futures.

 I also want to take this opportunity to stress the importance of regular attendance and punctuality.  Students cannot reach their potential if they do not attend classes on a consistent basis. As a staff, we have decided to focus more attention on trying to ensure students are attending all classes.  Please call the front office 250-423-4471 if your child/ren will be absent or leaving the school for an appointment.

 September also brings some changes to the staff of Fernie Secondary.  We would like to give our best wishes to all staff members who have moved on to other opportunities.  We would also like to welcome several new teachers to our staff.  This year's new faces include:

Mrs. Hay  –  Vice Principal

Ms. Keast– Counselling

Ms. Campsall – Drama, Social Studies and Careers

Ms. Christenson - English and Library

I hope that you have all enjoyed your summer and I wish all students the best of luck in the upcoming school year.

Linda Christenson
