Keep tennis going

I am extremely disappointed to hear about the problems the tennis club is experiencing.

One of the main reasons that I purchased a timeshare condo at Tyndalstone was the proximity of the tennis club.

I am a skier and tennis player and love the opportunity to enjoy each every other day. I have been to many of the clinics put on by your great professional instructors Marjorie, Peter and Kurt, and can say that they are first class and as much fun as any I have ever attended.

It would be a real shame if Whistler, a vacation destination that describes itself as world class, allows the demise of its tennis facility.

If the Holborn Group will not willingly honour its commitments, the community should step up and pressure them to do so.

Please don't let this excellent facility die.

PAC supports French immersion

I am writing to you on behalf of the Parent Advisory Council at Signal Hill Elementary in response to concerns raised about the possible implementation of French immersion at Signal Hill Elementary.

As the Parent Advisory Council for Signal Hill Elementary our mandate is to foster students learning, discovery and understanding of the world around them through parent involvement in the school.

This involvement supports our children's learning at home and at school, builds working relationships with teachers and improves the environment in which children learn.

Late French Immersion (Grades 5 - 7) is a "Program of Choice" as outlined by the Board of Education for Sea to Sky School District 48.This program is currently offered in all areas within this district where sufficient enrollment has been demonstrated.

Our School District provides equal access to education, including "Programs of Choice". As such, Late French Immersion is open and available to all students regardless of cultural, ethnic or socio-economic background, gender or academic skill. There are no pre-requisites to registering other than an interest in participating in this program of choice.
