Cheakamus Centre Field Trip!

Students had the opportunity to participate in a day trip to the Cheakamus Centre Longhouse, a program led by Squamish nation members who share their cultural practices and crafts. Students learned plant names and traditional uses during a forest walk, made soup using hot rocks, cooked bannock over fires, and learned how to cedar carve and weave. Huy chexw to the wonderful staff at the Cheakamus Centre!

Congratulations Flip Turn Cast/Crew&Director!!

Congratulations to the cast and crew of “Flip Turn” for a successful run at DRM! Twenty people came together to create this show for you, filled with honest, thoughtful performances (and some humour as well). Students rehearsed many lunch hours and after schools over the past 4 months, and each rehearsal was filled with joy (and lots of snacks).

Thanks also to everyone who made it out to see the show. The DRM theatre department appreciates your support!

Thank you to Ms. Keyes – your time and efforts are so appreciated!

Upcoming Parent Groups

  1. The Connect Parent group is a very effective group for Parents of teens (13-17 years).  It is a 10 week commitment, and a closed group.  The group is based on 9 attachment principles and will encourage parents to take a new perspective on their teen’s behaviour and offer new skills to try in negotiating conflict and building their relationship with their teen.  This group is psycho-educational, however does ask parents to look at their parenting and the ways they were parented.  It is open to parents or key caregivers of youth.  The group has been created for families in which there is conflict between the teen and parent.   The Group will be offered April 9-June 11, 530-7pm.  Light snacks are provided.  Parents interested, please call 604-892-1400, ext 1.  There is a pre-interview prior to group inclusion.
