Please join us in celebrating their commitment to our program through this re-imagined Seniors Day. Seniors include: Ben, Nathaniel, Zyken, Logan, Parsa, Jackson, and Jacob.
The Vancouver College Edmundians are excited to introduce The Crusade To End Hunger, a fundraiser with LFA, St Pats, Notre Dame, and STMC. The team will be collecting cans/non-perishable food and money for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank from April 6-April 20 and are encouraging all VC students to drop off donations in their A Block Teachers Classroom.
The Edmundians have also organized a dress-down day on April 15th (all students on campus) and April 16th (Grade 9-12 Day 1 students on-campus only) - students who wish to come to school in casual wear are asked to donate either $2 or 2 cans/non-perishable food. Ask your A Block Teacher for additional details and about the type of food you can donate!
