On Tuesday, December 6th, 2016, Apple officially named the Performance Learning Program (PLP) an Apple Distinguished Program.
This honour is presented to programs demonstrating innovation, leadership and educational excellence.
Students, parents, and PLP teachers, both current and alumni, attended the presentation of the honour, joining MLA Jane Thornthwaite, Superintendent Mark Pearmain, Assistant Superintendents Pius Ryan and Chris Atkinson, as well as members of the school board in the celebration.
PLP is the first secondary program designated with this honour in British Columbia, with fewer than a handful of school or programs designated as Apple Distinguished in Canada.
Our teachers are proud of the work that our students have done and accept this recognition on all their behalf.
