Mr. Jorge Anguiano, owner of Tepeyac Institute in Mexico, was welcomed to Westview Secondary on April 5th for the annual soccer tournament. Tepeyac has sent boys’ soccer teams and girls’ soccer teams to the tournament for the past 4 years. Dennis Schmidt presented Mr. Anguiano with mementos of the tournament.  Read the article in the Maple Ridge Times newspaper.  

Welcome Mexico

SD42 is pleased to be hosting students from a number of schools in Mexico. In the mornings, the groups have been studying English at SRT, MRSS, PMSS and Davie Jones. They have spent the afternoons exploring many of BC’s great outdoor activities. Apparently, snowshoe races are quite difficult! 


On February 15th, International students piled into 2 buses for the IntEd monthly field trip. This month’s trip was to Cypress mountain. The conditions were fabulous; lots of snow and sun. All students took lessons in the morning,  and either skied or snowboarded in afternoon.  Check out a full gallery of pictures on our Facebook page.
