Vanier News Feb. 25 – March 1

Principal / Vice Principal Message

This was another busy week at Georges Vanier with our recognition of Pink Shirt Day on Wednesday, Feb. 27.  Many of our students and staff wore a variety of pink shirts with messages about showing respect, kindness and tolerance for others, and accepting that diversity and differences are what makes us unique.  One of our intermediate classes also decorated pink shirts as an art project and displayed them for others to see.

Georges Vanier also hosted the boys and girls basketball playdays on Feb. 27 and 28.  The teams did very well, were wonderful hosts and showed great determination and sportsmanship.  The boys placed 3rd and the girls placed 4th.  We are very proud of the way our teams represented their school and themselves.  Thank you to Ms. Chang, Ms. Dixon, Ms. Henry, Ms. Singh and Mrs. Jouzy for coaching the teams, as well as all of the parents who provided transportation and support of our students.  Mr. Newbold and some student leaders also organized a concession for both days.  They were helping to raise money for new team jerseys, and raised approximately $150.00 for the school.  Well done, everyone!
