    Thursday, September 10th is photo day. All students are advised to bring their payment and photo envelope to the photographer when they are called down tomorrow to room K135.

    Information from our new photographer,

    For our photo program, we do need the students to bring in their order form with payment on photo day, we run a pre-payment system. If students are not happy with their photo all they need to do is bring them in on retake day, hand them in to us and we take another photo – no questions asked. 

    If students forget their money on photo day they can purchase a package of their ID card photo on retake day.  We have a 100% satisfaction guarantee – Retake, re-make or refund.

    If students don’t want to purchase photos they still need to be photographed for their ID Card, yearbook and the MyEdBC database.
