Dec. 23: Community briefs

Dec. 23 community briefs: correction on Vanderhoof's new animal welfare group, 2016 local arts festival, online resource for trade careers

Correction: new group for animal welfare

While the Greater Nechako Animal Welfare Society hopes to be able to help pet owners out with reduced spay/neuter costs in partnership with our local vets, the discount offered is contingent upon funding from BC SPCA.

At this time, the funding application remains in process, and the society currently does not have the financial ability to provide the reduced cost.

 

2016 local arts festival

Online registration for the 38th annual Festival of the Performing Arts is taking place until Jan. 11.

From March 7 to 20 in 2016, the festival includes speech arts, strings, and piano: Categories for entries are listed under “Syllabus” www.musicfestivalweb/nechako and print copies are available for pickup at the Vanderhoof Library and Woody’s Bakery.

Late fees would be added to entries submitted after Jan. 11 until Jan. 22, and no entries would be accepted after that date.

 

Online workshop for trades & technology career resources

Now educators from across BC can access a free online workshop to help them explore the many classroom resources available on the Discover Skills BC website.

Discover Skills BC has classroom resources created by Open School and the Ministry of Education that can be easily integrated into the existing BC curriculum. Additionally, the website has over 40 in-demand trade and technology career profiles, peer-to-peer trades and technology videos as well as links to post-secondary training and BC labour market information.
