ABOUT OUR SCHOOL
Champlain Heights School Annex was opened in 1986 as a primary annex. It has a population of just over 100 students from Kindergarten to Grade Three. The school facility is wheelchair accessible and a number of special needs children are successfully integrated into the school community. Students are drawn from a high density catchment area that consists of townhouses, housing cooperatives, rental and subsidized rental accommodation. The Annex has a committed and stable staff who provide an academically and socially rich environment for our students. Parents are welcomed in the school and are encouraged to take an active part in their children’s learning by volunteering in the classrooms, in the library, in the school and on the Parent Advisory Committee.
Located at 7835 Champlain Crescent in the southeast corner of Vancouver, the Annex is situated adjacent to the Champlain Heights Community Recreation Centre and Everett Crowley Park.
Champlain Heights School Annex is a closely-knit community of staff, students and parents. Frequent student assemblies help develop this sense of community. The Annex lives by its Code of Conduct, REACH for the Heights. This Code emphasizes the three “B’s” – Be Kind, Be Safe, and Be Great. Teachers work together planning and team-teaching cooperative units. All English as a second language students and special needs students are integrated into the regular classrooms. Our reading program uses a balanced literacy approach that enables students to respond to visual, written and oral texts through writing, speaking and representing.
