This video features recent student learning from Sands Secondary School.

As we turn the calendar to the new year, the school continues to be a hub of activity. Our basketball teams are in the middle of their seasons, the Green Team continues to address issues of conservation and our Grade 12's are eagerly rehearsing for the Grad Fashion Show.
