February already! Holy smokes! How are you doing Bamfield?
This month sees the much-anticipated return of the BCSA Kids After School Club on Wednesdays. BCSA Preschool is back as well, although it is being temporarily run out of the comfortable back room of the Café on Mondays (thank you to Esther for accommodating us!). As before, the preschool will be led by the wonderful Jaslyn Haberl. Please contact us to register new little ones!
The HFN Young Warriors are meeting on Thursdays and have planned to visit Cedar Coast field station on Vargas Island for a Weekend Training Gathering (contact Leonard Nookemis at email@example.com for more info).
To keep residents safe, the School District has declared that the school will remain closed to the public until the newest Covid surges subside. Sadly, this means we have had to temporarily suspend our Hip-Hop Dance classes on Mondays, Friday Night Chill, and other cool events and classes we have been hoping to host. The community library is still functioning via the online catalogue (linked from our website).
Our friends at BMSC have two scheduled seminars this month for the BMSC Climate Action Series – see their website for links to the episodes!
The Community Affairs Meeting is scheduled for 6:30pm on Tuesday 22nd. Keep an eye on the corkboard for a link to the meeting.
As always, please reach out if we can help with anything! And please keep an eye on our website (Bamfieldcommunity.ca) and our Facebook pages to stay updated. We will let you know when we can get back to business as usual at the school. 😊

Happy Family Literacy Day Bamfield! This year’s theme, “Let’s Connect!” encourages families to connect, learn, and play together.
Do you know that literacy is more than just reading and writing? Literacy can also be anything that helps you to build skills and explore interests. Playing games, going for nature hikes, learning a new recipe together – these are a few examples of the many kinds of literacy.
Families are children’s first and most important teachers. When families connect, they build strong relationships, create trust, and support children’s social, emotional and physical health.
“Children learn when they connect with others, with places and with ideas. Tell family stories, play outside or cook together,” says Margaret Sutherland, Executive Director of Decoda Literacy Solutions, BC’s provincial literacy organization. “Playing board games, singing songs, reading stories, and dancing with children all strengthen connections and create great memories.”
To take home some fun books and resources, check out the BCSA Community Library online catalogue (https://www.librarycat.org/lib/BCSA.Library). Follow the instructions on the main page to set your account, then browse away!
Here is a “Learning in the Great Outdoors – Winter Activities” booklet. Try it out!
