Campus Regina Public to Reopen in September 2021!

FEBRUARY 9, 2021 -- Regina Public Schools will once again be offering a full selection of career pathway opportunities for Grades 11 and 12 students through Campus Regina Public (CRP). Because of COVID protocols during the 2020-21 school year, CRP was temporarily closed and opened its doors to provide a space for eSchool K to Grade 12 teachers to facilitate online learning and instruction. We are happy to announce that our CRP teachers will be dusting off the table saws, powering back up the lights, firing up the hair dryers and accepting rusty Pontiac Sunfires for the 2021-22 school year.

Campus Regina Public strives to make meaningful connections between industry standard career-centred programs and academic knowledge. Campus Regina Public provides two-credit comprehensive programs that demonstrate how subjects such as Math, Science and English apply outside of school. Industry partners are integrated into the curriculum to enhance student engagement, meaningful vocational skills and numerous job prospects. By working closely with our industry partners, depending on their career path, Campus Regina Public strives to have students ready for university, technical college and/or jobs.

To provide an advantage in the job market, Campus Regina Public works with many organizations to provide certification or apprenticeship hours required for employment or journeyperson certification. We need your help to get students thinking about the benefits of taking a course at CRP. If you know a student who is job oriented and a hands-on learner with a vocational pathway related to a CRP course, we would like to encourage you to direct them to the CRP website, talk to the school guidance counsellors and pick up a registration form from their school’s office.

CRP teachers are excited to return to the classroom and shops to build relationships and engage with our future students, families, post-secondary institutions and industry!

During the 2021-22 school year, CRP will be offering the following 13 courses:

  • Advanced Construction and Technology
  • Auto Mechanics
  • Cosmetology
  • Early Childhood
  • Electrical and Electronics
  • Engineering
  • Fire Sciences and First Responders>
  • Health Sciences
  • Law, Public Safety & Security
  • Social Justice
  • Television and Radio Production
  • Video Game and Design

Pink Day 2021

FEBRUARY 9, 2021 -- School divisions across Saskatchewan will celebrate Pink Day on Wednesday, February 24, 2021.

Pink Day started in 2007, when a Grade 9 student in Cambridge, Nova Scotia was bullied by classmates for wearing a pink shirt to school. Taking notice, two students rallied their peers to send a message to the bullies. The next day, the halls were filled with students in pink T-shirts.

Pink Day started because two boys chose to do something about bullying rather than stand by and watch it happen. Now the movement is worldwide, educating and inspiring others to stand together to create an environment of anti-bullying, inclusion, belonging and respect.

Enhanced Ventilation in Schools

JANUARY 22, 2021 – Regina Public Schools announces the completion of an important project that will contribute to the health and safety of all students and employees in all Regina Public schools and buildings.

All Regina Public facilities now have enhanced, new air filtration systems. Announced in October and in the Return to School Parent Handbook, the school division has increased airflow and replaced or updated all ventilation systems in all its schools and buildings.

The newly installed air filtration systems use a technology called “bipolar ionization.” This filtration:

  • Reduces particles and smoke in the air;
  • Kills pathogens (bacteria, viruses, molds) including human influenza viruses, coronavirus and SARS; and
  • Helps control allergens and asthma.

The installation of the air filtration systems was a multi-phase process that began in September 2020. The first phase included installing systems on rooftop units, unit ventilators and furnaces. The second phase, completed in December 2020, included the installation of the large-scale air-handling units on school buildings.

Regina Public Schools staff worked with external contractors to complete the installations. They focused on following all health and safety protocols and minimizing disruption to school staff and students. This complex work involved more than 800 individual installations at schools and school division buildings.

Following a public request for proposals process, the new ventilation systems were funded by Regina Public Schools, with support from Government of Saskatchewan and Government of Canada pandemic funding.

Improving airflow and filtration in all Regina Public Schools is part of the school division’s three-part safety strategy outlined in its Return to School Plan. This strategy includes mandatory face mask use and physical distancing, where possible; enhanced cleaning protocols; and the increased, filtered ventilation in all schools and buildings.
