Today, all Seaforth students will bring home a reverse consent form regarding the following Program.

We are pleased to announce that our school has been accepted into the BC School Fruit and Vegetable Nutritional Program (Administered by the BC Agriculture in the Classroom Foundation and supported by the Province of British Columbia and the Provincial Health Services Authority) Our school is involved in a province-wide healthy living initiative. One of the goals is to encourage healthy eating by providing fresh BC fruits and vegetables to our students during class time. Our students will receive these healthy treats 12 times over the school year at no charge! For students in grades K-5, there is also the option to have milk delivered along with the fruit and veggies, again, at no charge.
