In the Learning Commons section of the NWSS website, you’ll have access to important information; this includes many resources, help for assignments, as well as notes about upcoming activities.

We hope this helps parents, teachers, and students stay up-to-date on the services of the NWSS Learning Commons.

Dans le site de la bibliothèque de NWSS, vous aurez accès à des informations importantes comme les ressources de la bibliothèque, l’aide aux devoirs en classe, et nos activités à venir. Nous espérons que ce site aidera les parents, les enseignants, et les étudiants à être au courant sur les services de la bibliothèque de NWSS.

The New Westminster Secondary School Library Learning Commons recognizes and acknowledges the Qayqayt First Nation, as well as all Coast Salish peoples, on whose traditional and unceded territories we live, we learn, we play and we do our work.
