Beautiful Laurier Tree, always standing tall in all seasons with different colours!

Dear Laurier Families,

Here we are mid-May counting the sunny days and wishing for more! But in Vancouver, rain or shine, we continue with our plans and activities.

Sports Day @Laurier!

We are pleased to run our school-wide Sports Day on Friday, May 20th with all our 14 divisions participating in a range of activities. Our Sports Day is strictly outdoor and in order to avoid crowds, the 14 stations are spread out over our entire outside fields: upper playground, gravel field and tennis courts. Staff will guide and supervise students from one station to the other throughout the day. Each station is facilitated by high school students, who are our former Laurier students attending Churchill secondary. Activities begin at 9:20am and continue until 11:45am, with recess at 10:30-10:50am and lunch at 11:45am-12:05pm. Please remember to pack a lunch for your child on Sports Day as they are not receiving any hot lunch on that day. Students will have their mid-day break from 12:05-12:52pm. We begin the afternoon with cheers and tug of war and end Sports Day at 2pm. Students are back to their classrooms and dismissed at the usual 3:03pm bell. In case of extreme rain/weather, Sports Day will be cancelled and students will continue with their regular school day. If you have any specific questions about Sports Day, please contact your classroom teachers or myself at school.

Many thanks to our Sports Day Committee, Ms. Boucher, Ms. S. Wong, Ms. Tan and our four UBC student teachers, Ms. Lee, Mr. Chan, Ms. Lal and Ms. Tuscok for their many hours of planning and leading our Sports Day, and our teachers for organizing stations. Our gratitude goes to our amazing Laurier PAC for providing our students with treats (freezies) and our student volunteers with pizza.
