As we continue with our current model of emergency online learning until the end of the school year, on June 1 we will begin to safely open Vancouver College for those students who, through our Phased School Re-Opening survey asked to continue their online learning on campus.
Parents & students are asked to review the Monday, May 25, 2020 Newsletter & our COVID-19 webpage for further details, including important safety guidelines & opportunities for all students to safely return to campus one last time this school year
At the beginning of the school year, we planned to hold our annual Grad Dinner Dance on Friday, May 15, 2020, to celebrate our Grade 12 students and their accomplishments. With COVID-19 delaying those plans for now, we want to dedicate Friday, May 15, 2020 to our graduates, and have a few special surprises planned for them throughout the day! Our celebrations from the day will be collected on our new Grad Dinner Dance webpage to share with our community.
Over the past few weeks, our music department has been working hard to design a special musical project involving our choir students, alumni, and teachers! This project is being shared in gratitude & support of our community during this time.
