First Responders

Mr. J Wong 


We have started a Student Responders Team for the 2020-2021 school year. The First Responders Team consists of 14 grade 11-12 students who will be trained over the summer as professional First Responders. The students will be trained up to the standards of Medical First Responders as set by the guidelines of the Canadian Red Cross. The current team consist of 11 grade 12 students and 3 grade 11 students. Recruitment for the 2021-2022 team will start in the new year. 


The team will provide first aid coverage for the majority of the student population. Team members will also have the opportunity to provide first aid coverage for community events. Carson will be one of 18 schools in the Metro Vancouver region with a Student First Responders Team. Most schools are from the Richmond School District, the other schools on the North Shore are Handsworth, and Mulgrave. 


Students undergo between 40 to 60 hours of training, depending on if the students already have some previous training. Students receive Standard First Aid + CPR C training and additional First Responders training. 


The application process for the First Responders team began in February and will be open to all grade 10&11 students.

Jack Chapters are groups of young people working year-round to dismantle stigma and empower each other in changing the way our community talks about mental health. 

Carson Graham’s chapter of jack.orgempowers young leaders to revolutionize mental health, dismanting barriers in their schools and communities. We're working towards a Canada where all young people understand how to take care of their own mental health and look out for each other; a Canada without shame, where all those who need support get the help they deserve. Our movement is powered by tens of thousands of advocates and allies across every province and territory of Canada. We're just getting started. If you want to be a part of the change, join our teams:  TEAMS??


Interact Club 

Mr Bjornson 


The Carson Graham Interact Club provides opportunities for students to get involved with their community and provide service to those in need while making a great personal foundation for their own leadership, organization, and collaboration skills. We have hosted events in the past to raise money for the eradication of polio, the “Eyeglasses Drive” to provide the less fortunate with proper eyewear, and also the “Backpack Drive” to provide those in need with canned goods, warm clothing, and personal items. While these initiatives sound great, they can also be quite significant and make a great difference in our community; we must not forget that a great deal of organization, planning, management, and sheer hard work goes in the process of making anything possible. The Interact Club will provide you with an abundance of experience while you work with peers in organizing events, which may look slightly different in comparison to previous years, but will still make all the difference in the community, especially for people who are struggling with social issues and the current global pandemic. This club will also be a great opportunity for you to score service hours in the meetings, and also during the execution of initiatives. The Interact club’s doors will always be open to those who wish to make a difference in their community, while also obtaining and developing a variety of handy skills. And finally, remember that one person can always make a difference in the world if they just set their mind to it.
