This will be the last update of 2015 since the schools are closing after Dec 18th and re-opening on Jan 4th, 2016.
During this week, VCE has hosted a gymnast in residence. The students had lots of fun learning gymnastics. We were glad to have Amanda Morris providing this opportunity for our students.
The Boys and Girls Club that runs after school sports and arts/crafts sessions will be restarting on the second week of January in the new year. As well, the VCE Strings will be meeting Thursday mornings only starting in January.
We would like to thank those who donated to the Community Christmas Care. We had many toys and food items collected. Your generosity is much appreciated. As well, the Christmas Rummage Sale was a great success. The students had fun shopping for their family members. Thank you to the PAC for organizing this event.
On next Wed, Dec 16th, some of our students will be entertaining the seniors by performing at a Variety Show at Squamish Seniors Centre. The seniors appreciated them last year so we hope to continue this tradition. Finally, the preparation for the Winter Concert is underway. The concert will be held on Thurs, Dec 17th at 7 pm. The theme this year is “The Snow Tree”. At the concert, we are collecting donations for the SAM (Sustainability through Agriculture and Micro-enterprises) Project. Last year, VCE raised funds to purchase six goats for the Lumbemba Cooperative in Zambia. For more information, please go to http://thesamproject.ca/
Thank you for your continued support! We wish you happy holidays and great start to the new year!
