Everyone should join at least one club or committee. It gets you involved and keeps you busy.
Get involved. Time flies in high school, so make the most of it.
These are the best 4 years of your life, so get involved and stay busy. Take courses that you enjoy and make new friends.
Take advantage of everything! Do everything! Participate in all that your school has to offer, from prom to fire camp to the soccer team and even food safe. This is the place where you are given the greatest opportunities, so take advantage of them.
Don’t grow up! It’s unbelievable how fast time goes, then it’s gone, so get into as much trouble as possible, and see as much as you can, because Qualicum is just a speck on a map.
Because time passes so quickly, it is important to make the most of every minute. Pay attention to everything that you teachers have to offer. Put your best effort into everything you do. Work hard, play hard.
Remember that even though you don’t plan on getting a job writing English it is still included in your grade average, so don’t fail it.
Take as many classes as you can while they are free! Do not spend your time worrying about what other people are thinking of you, just be yourself.
Follow your interests, take advantage of opportunities, and don’t take high school too seriously.
Get involved and take advantage of this free education! Join clubs and sports teams, take every class you can with Mr. Abel, and don’t get caught up in the drama of high school.
Get to know as many people as you can and make your memories with them, inside and outside of school. Never take your eyes off the prize.
Keep on keepin’ on! Take every opportunity you can, go on trips, see the world. Have fun while you are still young.
Go out into the world ready for anything. Try new things, you may end up finding a new sport or hobby you enjoy. I discovered surfing and I’m extremely thrilled by it. Even if you don’t like what you did, what’s the worst that would happen? You may lose some of your massive amounts of spare time.
Act before you think.
One thing I have learned is that all the old cliched sayings are true. Strive for excellence, get involved and don’t let any opportunity pass you by. Push your own boundaries and live without regret. Believe in yourself.
Have fun! These are the last years before you are on your own. Live, laugh, love.
Get involved with KSS events. The more involved you are, the more tight-knit your grad class will become. and the better your grad year will be. Take lots of photos and smile and laugh all the time, because memories last forever.
Remember that most of what you learn doesn’t come to you in the classroom. The reason that we go to school isn’t to learn for the sake of learning, so try to put what you learn into practice. READ, and whenever you can, try to do the things you care about instead of the things you have to. And don’t forget to breathe.
Keep up with your academics, but most of all get involved in your dry grad and prom activities. This is the best year of school, so have fun.
Make the most of everything. High school is a huge part of your life so take advantage of all the awesome experiences KSS has to offer. Don’t stress too much and have fun.
It’s cliche, and I’m sure someone else wrote this exact paragraph already, but avoid procrastination (as much as possible) and take advantage of all our opportunities. It’s okay to be late occasionally, as long as you are ready to dance. My five years of high school flew by, so it goes without saying that the average four will be even faster.
Have fun. Don’t be a library kid. Join a sport.
Your time in high school will fly by so fast you won’t even notice so make the most of it. Get involved in as much as you can. Make great friends and have fun. These are the best years of your life and you can only do it once.
Qualicum Beach is part of a great area of Vancouver Island. Take advantage of the close proximity of the ocean and the mountains. Your life may lead you all over the world and you might want memories of the Island.
You don’t have to join every committee or sports team to have the ultimate high school experience. Don’t be lazy or be satisfied with mediocre grades if you know you could have done better. Putting in a little extra effort pays off and volunteering in the community looks great on a resume. Spend much time with your friends because this is your last chance to be all together in a carefree environment.
Enjoy the few years you have in high school, because they go by faster than you could imagine. Also, challenge yourself and don’t make excuses, not take that harder math class, and take lots of sciences, as more doors will be open for you. And of course, have fun! You’re only a teenager once; don’t live the rest of your life with any regrets.

Take every opportunity life gives you.
Work hard. It’s very important to keep up in classes and always do your homework.
Don’t wait until your last year of high school to get to know everyone in your grad class! Also, make sure you get involved in all the events; pajama day, Halloween, etc. Those are the things you will remember.
All is free in love and work…. keep going after what you want even if you fail, you will not regret the journey.
Be all that you can be.
My advice for KSS undergraduates is to take a vast number of courses and really figure out what you are interested in. Also have fun, make a lot of friends and enjoy your high school years.
