Proposed School Boundary Revisions - Westwind

The Richmond School District has recommended 3 boundary changes for Westwind. The purpose of a school boundary change is to reflect the regional strategy contained in the Long Range Facilities Plan. It is important to note that families that have a child currently attending Westwind will:

  • not be affected by the boundary change,
  • have the choice to remain in their current catchment or transfer to their newly proposed catchment,
  • have the choice to enrol any siblings in their current catchment or their newly proposed catchment.

Who is affected?

  • As of September 2020, all new students living in an adjusted catchment area will be part of the newly formed catchment.

The proposed boundary changes can be found in the “Document Library” section on the right-hand side of this page.

If you have any feedback, please respond by November 15, 2019 by providing your comments online or by submitting written feedback to the school office. All comments will be considered prior to the Board of Education making a decision on the proposed boundary changes on December 11, 2019.

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

Westwind students should not be moved from the McMath catchment to the Steveston-London catchment. Here are a few reasons why:1. French immersion students should be moved into another LFI school so neighbourhood kids aren't left to commute so far. This is not fair to make catchment students commute to accomodate out of catchment students.2. Most Westwind students have addresses that are closer to the McMath catchment. Our children should not have to commute when we live right beside McMath.3. By moving Westwind students to Steveston-London, we are increasing our carbon footprint by having to drive our children to school or for them to take transit along a busy road instead of them being able to walk.
