International School Program Needs Local Families

April 09, 2017

The International Student Program is in need of host families for a two-week period in May. Families will be compensated $700 for hosting two students or $400 for hosting one. Hosting two students is ideal for both you and the students as they provide each other with companionship and entertainment. This group of 11 Chinese students in Grade 8 will be attending GRSS and participating in outdoor activities from May 8th-22nd. The continued growth and success of the International Program means increased local and international opportunities for our own Gold River students! If you’re interested in hosting, please contact me via Facebook Messenger, through e-mail at, or at 250-283-9051. I look forward to hearing from you!

Important Notice: Have You Had A CT Scan In Campbell River?

April 12, 2017

Island Health is reviewing diagnostic imaging reports completed by a radiologist who temporarily worked for the health authority between January 2013 and February 2016. The revision is a precautionary step and Island Health says until it’s finished it’s not known if there is a cause for concern for any patients.

Island Health will go through approximately 500 CT scans that were performed by one specific radiologist at Campbell River Hospital before Feb. 22, 2016. “There have been concerns expressed to us regarding potential quality issues with regard to this radiologist’s reporting," said Dr. David Robertson, executive medical director responsible for medical imaging.The radiologist in question no longer works for Island Health, Robertson says.  This story from our friends at CTV News Vancouver Island.

Diagnostic imaging done outside of the timeframe and by other radiologists is not part of the review.

Island Health says the films are being analyzed in Vancouver and expects it to take approximately three weeks.

According to Island Health, if any discrepancies are found in the CT scans a larger inspection may be conducted that could involve re-reading up to 20,000 diagnostic tests at Campbell River Hospital, Nanaimo Regional General Hospital and West Coast General Hospital in Port Alberni.

Anyone who is concerned can reach out to the health authority through their family physician or they can contact Island Health through the patient care quality office.
