Jackie Jack – Hopeful School Trustee

Jackie JackHello I am Jackie Jack, I am currently running for School Trustee here in Gold River. I have been a resident for past 9 years. I am married to Ben Jack JR. We have 4 children and 2 grandsons, 3 of our children have completed high school 2 here and 1 in Nanaimo.

I am a former School District #68 CUPE Aboriginal Education Assistant For 12 years, during that time I was a union shop steward also member on the Aboriginal CUPE BC committee helped form it. I have a Diploma in General Studies and Adult Aboriginal Learning Facilitators Certificate from Thompson Rivers University out of Kamloops B.C. I obtained them via the distance learning program. I am also a strong believer in giving back and serving communities I live in – this is my chance to give back. In Nanaimo when my oldest son belonged to Beavers I became a leader, I also held a seat on the Board of Directors at Nanaimo Boys & Girls club. I also was a PAC member at Bayview Elementary and now at RWES. I currently work for Nuu-Chah-nulth tribal council as Early Years Outreach Worker. I have support from my employer if I am to be successful to take days off as necessary for Trustee work.

I believe all students are individual learners and learn in their own ways and we need to respect that not a one size fits all approach works. I believe our students need to feel safe in all forms while attending school. We need to bridge some existing gaps in this school system in various areas, we need our students to be given the best education possible. The students are our future leaders in all aspects. As a community it is our responsibility to help foster this growth and a lot of this happens during their school years. I support life long learning, personal education and growth. I support change and progress in schools for students to gain the skills they need to become successful contributing youth in society. I would love the opportunity to be a liaison for schools and parents, to hear parents voice concerns and wishes for their child’s education, increase parent’s presence in schools, help them feel welcome –  these are our schools and we all belong there, and an open flow of communication between home and schools.

I am willing to be a sounding board and share. I am going to be at the all candidates meeting to answer any questions you may have. My contact email mrsjjack [at] me [dot] com.

On Tuesday October 7th, GRSS Teacher Katrina Kornylo received a Certificate of Achievement from the 2014 Prime Minister’s Awards for Teaching Excellence!
You can read more about Mrs. Kornylo and her achievements in our high school in her official bio on the Government of Canada website:  Katrina Korynylo.  However, the quote from a student says it all:
“Mrs. Kornylo loves her job more than anyone else that we know. Her passion for math and science is beyond comprehension; so when she takes it into the classroom, it makes a much more exciting environment for students to experience.”

 ~ Congratulations Mrs. Kornylo ~

Gold River Beginnings

An amazing video put together by Suzanne Trevis and the Gold River Museum & Archives Society about Gold River’s beginnings.  Fantastic job Suzanne!


Don’t forget – Gold River’s 50th Birthday will be held Aug 26th – 30th, 2015!

Note: The video doesn’t seem to want to show up on my iPad (anyone else having this problem?), so here is the direct link:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wCrDlqxwI90

Help Needed For Canada Day Weekend

Hello Gold River!

Debbie Erickson doesn’t have Facebook but I am relaying her message here. She needs help putting up the Nimpkish fencing for Canada Day weekend.  It needs to be done on Wednesday at the latest.  If anyone has suggestions of times to do it that would work for most people, we could really use the community’s help!


Brooke White! :)

Aerial view of townsite 1966. The road to Campbell River heads off at the top, alongside the Heber River. Peppercorn Park is at bottom left corner. The construction camp is still on “Heber Field” on the far right.

Volunteers needed to help plan Gold River’s 50th Birthday Celebrations in 2015.

A meeting will held on June 12, starting at 7.30 p.m. in the Gold River Museum and Archives room in the Jack Christensen Centre (old Lions Den above the Day Care).

Everyone is welcome to attend and please bring some ideas of how you would like to this important event celebrated.

The event will begin on the Wednesday, Aug. 26 – the actual anniversary date, with cake etc at a location to be determined. We are scheduling events for Thursday & Friday and hope to encourage businesses & organizations to hold their “mini reunions” (individual group get togethers) on the Friday. Saturday we will have a parade ending in Nimpkish Park, where there will be booths, games, music and of course a salmon BBQ. The museum society is hosting an art show, Paddles of Gold, from 6-9 and then there will be a Dance starting at 9pm. Sunday morning there is talk of a pancake breakfast and/or coffee, pie and music in the plaza..
