STUDENT, STAFF, AND SCHOOL PHOTOGRAPHS
Black Gold Regional Division No. 18 and École Champs Vallée School are inviting a photographer from Imagine That Photographics into our School on Monday, April 23, 2018 to capture the essence of how we “inspire success” every day in our school and students.  


The photographs taken will be used for the purpose of building public awareness, promoting School and Division programs, or promoting public education. Some photographs will focus on only one or two students or staff, while others will focus on larger groups or wide photos of the entire classroom.
