Here's the letter from the principal:
Quote:
Dear Parents/Guardians:

You may or may not be aware of concerns that have arisen from a camping trip in Harrison over the Victoria
Day long weekend that appears to have involved at least some teenagers—likely grads— from our school . As
I’m sure you know, over many decades at many secondary schools, groups of graduating teens often decide to
celebrate their impending graduation by going camping together. Often younger students and previous
graduates attend as well. These camping trips are not school-sanctioned events, are not supervised, and have
nothing to do with the school except to the extent the teens attend one.

From evidence in photos and other online posts, it appears a large group of teens who attend Earl Marriott
camped at “Big Silver” near Harrison Lake. On Thursday morning, I received a call from a member of a local 4-
wheel drive association regarding concerns about the litter left behind as you see in the photos below. Put
simply, the camping teens were irresponsible and rude in leaving a huge mess.

Clearly, the evidence shows these teens are likely grads from our school. Just as the many public users of the
campsite are affected by the mess left behind, our school is also affected and embarrassed by association with
the actions of these teens. Throughout the day I received several phone calls from angry members of the
public, members of the Earl Marriott parent community, and numerous email messages. Images of the mess
left behind are widely circulating on social media. There are many concerns regarding the negative impact on
the environment as well as the impact on surrounding wildlife. There were concerns about the safety of our
students and the impact on other users of the area. These concerns are justified and real.

While the school had no knowledge of this camping trip and has no control over what teens do when they are
not attending school, the incident clearly reflects on our school and all our students.

Social responsibility is a school goal; we need to address the situation and demonstrate that the vast majority of
our students appreciate and understand their civic responsibilities. We are requesting that students ‘do the
right thing’ and volunteer to return to “Big Silver” to clean it up. We will put together a clean-up team of
students and staff to travel to the campsite to help restore the area. We are asking students who went
camping and students who would like to display their social responsibility to the environment and to our school,
to join us.

I know you have received and read letters sent to you earlier in the school year; “Graduation Expectations” and
“Community Youth Activities/Grad Pranks”. I encourage parents to take this opportunity to talk to your sons or
daughters about grad celebrations, as well as making good choices and avoiding dangerous situations. It is
important that students and parents understand the potential dangers involved.

Finally, I will add that we always want our students, whether on school sanctioned events or not, to act
respectfully and appropriately. Their actions impact their own reputations and safety as well as the reputation
of the larger school and parent community. If you have further questions or concerns, feel free to contact me
by phone, 604-531-8354, or by email, hignell_k@surreyschools.ca

Yours sincerely,
Mr. Ken Hignell
Principal

It started with a member of our bctoyota4wd group snapping the pics and spiraling from there.

im happy that a cleanup is happening and hope the kids as well as their parents learn something from this.

Saw this on News1130's twitter this morning, and was super excited when I saw it lol

Especially the picture they had of a tweet that I'm pretty sure was from a user here?

Bush Party Mess | Watch News Videos Online

a little news snippet for those who missed it tonight.

hopefully it reminds people going into the backcountry to pack out what they pack in. you had enough space in your car to bring it in with you there should be space left in there to take it out.

thanks to everyone who posted in this thread and took interest

I couldn't be happier seeing this, social media drives me crazy sometimes but in situations like this making people accountable of their actions puts a smile on my face that it's actually doing good rather then BS drama.
