On October 7th 2017, retired VC teacher and coach Gordon Penn was inducted into the 2017 BC Football Hall of Fame, an organization that recognizes football heroes across the province.
The Vancouver College Parent Association (VCPA) would like to extend a warm welcome back to returning families, and to new families who are joining Vancouver College this year.
Vancouver College is considered one of British Columbia's top schools, largely because of the dedication of its faculty, staff and administration to providing a faith- based education and their focus on the development of the whole person, preparing students for lives dedicated to excellence, leadership, service to church and community.
The VCPA has a legacy of serving the needs of the students, enriching their educational experience via successful fundraising, community building, and outreach events.
The primary role of the VCPA is to encourage participation in school activities by all VC families, raise funds for projects and initiatives as determined by the school's administration, as well as promote and assist with social justice activities in order to provide the opportunity for students to put their Catholic faith in action.
We encourage all Vancouver College families to fully participate in building our faith and learning community to the benefit of all our sons. Please visit the VC parent participation website to sign up for volunteer opportunities.
As we start the school year with Welcome Back Barbecues and Parent Orientation Sessions, we extend a special invitation to all parents to attend our three major fundraising events.
Please mark your calendars for
*Finnegan Ball -November 4, 2017
*Mothers' Christmas Tea- December 6, 2017
*Mayfair-May 12, 2018
I would like to extend a heart-felt thank you to those who have already attended and/or volunteered at one of these events in previous years.
The VCPA is looking forward to the 2017/2018 school year. This year we continue to support Vancouver College's Our Next Century Campaign. By working together we will continue the tradition of excellence that has been established at Vancouver College by the families who came before us. We look forward to seeing many new as well as familiar faces at our VCPA events this year.
Michele Morandini on behalf of the VCPA
