Principal / Vice Principal’s Message

Happy New Year to the students, staff and families at G.V.!  I hope you had a relaxing holiday and was able to rest, sleep in and spend extra time with your family and friends.  The students and staff seem happy to be back at school.

I am a retired principal from the Surrey School District, and was asked to be the Acting Principal at Georges Vanier until mid-March.  I am very happy to be here, and will work collaboratively with the school community to maintain a positive and smooth transition until a permanent principal is assigned after spring break.   I have heard many positive things about the school.  Thank you for making my first week a welcoming and inclusive one.

Mrs. Carrie Burton

Pics of the Week


Our Dance In Schools program started this week.  Joanne and Angela are instructing some of our students as they learn a choreographed dance.  Half of the school performed at an assembly on Friday, Jan. 11.  It was a fantastic performance and well attended by many of our parents and family members.  The second half of the school will have their performance on Friday, Jan. 18.  Come out to see the final performances.  We are very proud of our students!
