Welcome to Delta Secondary School



Happy New Year and Welcome Back!!

I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday.  The beginning of January is suddenly upon us and I am always amazed at how quickly the remainder of the school year goes from this point on.  I encourage you to keep up the good work that you have been doing at DSS.   For those of you who resolved to make positive changes to be more successful,  I remind you that your parents, teachers, counsellors and administrators are here to support you!

January is the time we begin to plan for the 2016-17 school year.  As you are reviewing your course selections for next year with your children, please look very carefully at your choices.   It is important for students in grades 10 – 12 to ensure their selected courses will meet the post secondary requirements they may need for their future.  If you have any questions about individual courses or post secondary requirements, please contact one of our counsellors or our career advisor, Ms. Jew.

Two new and exciting programs are being introduced next year at Delta Secondary:

  1. The Delta Softball Academy
    • Based out of DSS, but open to any students in the district
    • If you would like to be placed on a wait list for the Academy, contact Paige Hansen at 604-952-2886 phansen@deltasd.bc.ca

  2.  Farm Roots Mini School

    • Based out of Boundary Bay
    • students will attend the Farm Roots Mini School and DSS (for their regular courses) on alternate days
    • may appeal to students who enjoy hands on learning and are interested in sustainable resources


More information on both of these programs will be available at our parent nights and in our student presentations.
