Axis Theatre 

Axis Theatre is presenting Hamelin: A New Fable on Thursday afternoon at 1:15 p.m.  Family members are welcome to join us in the gym.  Click here for more details.

FitKids

Each week, grade groups come into the gym for 45 minutes of active fitness activity. Grade 6/7 leaders and Mr. Dekerf supervise and lead 7 rotating fitness stations.  During this time, classroom teachers are released to engage in collaborative work related to our school curricular goals.

Learning Commons News

Vanier students are Makers. After creating designs last week, students came up with a construction plan and worked cooperatively to build their own interpretations of the Eiffel Tower. They figured out that communication is the most important thing when working together.

We continued with our Mighty Girl project. Students began to choose fabric and design clothing for their character. We also worked on research for our First Nations Cedar Boxes. Many classes used Doodle Buddy App to show their learning about Chinese New Year Dragons.
