The first week of June is here which mean the countdown is on until summer break. We are really excited our new games have been painted outside and the outdoor classroom and courtyard are beginning to shape up. Our carver has taken the Welcome Post to his workshop to work on and won’t be carving at the school anymore. We are very excited to see the finished carving and will let everyone know when the raising ceremony will take place.

It is Bike to School Week!!! – Let’s get as many people biking, rolling or walking to school as possible. Not only is it good for the environment but it is good for our children’s health as well. We have bike stands to lock your bike up by the playground and off of Nanaimo Street.
Routine Childhood Immunization information from VCH – Kindergarten, Grade 6 and Grade 9
Immunizations within the school setting and at Public Health offices are currently on hold due to the demands of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, immunizations for routine vaccine preventable illnesses are important and we encourage children to be immunized on schedule through their Family Physicians and select pharmacies.
