Our annual Spring Band Concert is here! Recorded safely over two days, the concert includes students from Grades 7-12 in both our jazz & concert band ensembles. We are so proud of the students, families, and teachers that make up our Band Department for their dedication this year!
This week, we pray together for the souls of the 215 children who died while attending the Kamloops Indian Residential School, their families, and their community. We also pray for the wisdom to learn from these past mistakes and for healing as we move forward.
As educators grounded in the principles of Blessed Edmund Rice and the Essential Elements, we stand in solidarity with those marginalized by poverty and injustice. We take action as a community to acknowledge and recognize the truth of Canada's colonial history.
After celebrating our Grade 12’s with a student-led Grad BBQ and Springfest, we are launching our special Tribute to the Class of 2021! Over the next few weeks, we will be featuring each one of our 155 Graduates on social media (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram), in the hopes that our community can get to know a little bit more about these special students before their commencement ceremony in June.
We are also releasing our Class of 2021 Webpage, where we encourage members of our community to leave a message for our Grad Class and safely join in on our celebrations during this special year.
Congratulations to the Class of 2021! #vcgrad2021
May is #AsianHeritageMonth and this year, as the number of hate crimes against Asians continues to rises, it is more important than ever to take the time to recognize, acknowledge, and discuss this month. That's why we're so proud of Grade 8 student Christophe for writing, producing, and creating this TedTalk style lesson to educate our students and community, and to encourage us all to stand up and #stopasianhate.
