An important message from the KOSC Board of Directors

Dear KOSC Members,

Your Board of Directors is contemplating minor revisions to our Constitution and Bylaws, as part of the mandatory transition under the New Societies Act.  Potential revisions include formalizing the requirement for signing officers to complete a criminal record check, and permitting executive motions to be carried out by teleconference or email as required.  If you have an interest in participating in the discussions pertaining to these updates, please plan to attend our next board meeting, held in Pirate Portable, 7pm, Wednesday November 21st.   The finalized Constitution and Bylaws will be filed with Societies BC by November 28, 2018.

Further details about the proposed changes are available in advance of the meeting, upon request.


Liana Tupper

KOSC President

Halloween Haunted House Date Change

Please note that the Halloween Haunted House has been changed to Monday, October 29. Kids will be walking down to the Lion’s Hall location with their portables and the kids at Lion’s Hall will be running the show! It is helpful to know that each portable will give their kids a choice of going through the haunted house with the lights on or the lights off, so that those kids who may find a haunted house a bit scary can have a less scary experience. The haunted house is super fun, so if you pick up your kids early, you may also bring them down and walk them through the haunted house yourself while it is running. If your child is a KOSC kid, but does not attend on Monday afternoons, you may also bring them to the haunted house, as long as you are with them at all times. For families with kids attending Lion’s Hall, please consider picking them up after 5pm so they can fully participate in creating a great haunted house experience.

KOSC Annual General Meeting (AGM) – Wednesday October 24th @ 7pm

Just a reminder that our Annual General Meeting (AGM) is next Wednesday, October 24 at 7pm in the Pirate Portable. As members of Keating Out-of-School Care Society, all KOSC parents are invited and encouraged to attend. Light refreshments and free childcare (no children under age 3, please) will be provided.

Board members will be nominated and elected at the AGM. All KOSC members are eligible to vote in the election of Board members. If you are interested in becoming involved with the KOSC Board of Directors, please contact me and I will put you in touch with the current Board President, Liana Tupper.

We would love to see a strong turnout on Wednesday evening, so we hope that you will be able to attend. Our Board of Directors is a critical part of our centre — without a Board, we wouldn’t have a daycare! Your participation and support allows our programs to better serve the needs of the Keating community.

Please RSVP for the AGM by completing this survey:


Alternately, you may RSVP by adding your name to the sign-up sheets on the parent tables at Pirate Portable and Lions Hall.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
