Principal's Message

Have a great summer break!

​Our most unusual school year is coming to a close;  we hope that the summer will bring an opportunity for students and their families to safely recreate and relax, and that by August 1st, the Education Minister will be allowing us to plan for a more normal looking school re-entry in September.  
Please note that Report Cards will be available to view on line via PowerSchool on Wednesday June 24th :  If you have any difficulty with this, please contact the school office.  If you cannot remember your user name (typically your e-mail address) or password, there is a self-service re-set tool that can be used for PowerSchool as well.  Any parents who wish a printed copy of the report please make a request to our Admin. Secretary Mrs. Gilkes: .  A printed copy of the report will be placed in student files.
If you have any questions about the subject results reported please contact the subject teacher before Friday June 26th.  Staff e-mails are available at:  If there are further issues contact the school office.
Please return all items belonging to the school by Friday June 26th 12:00pm.  This includes any borrowed technology, texts, library books etc. Should band students wish to borrow instruments over the summer please contact Mr. Cripps:
At this time we do not have a detailed decision regarding what school will look like in the fall, and how AHS regulations will determine modifications that may be required.  The Minister of Education is scheduled to make an announcement on August 1st regarding which scenario will be followed when learning resumes Sept. 1st .  Meanwhile, school staff are working in collaboration with CBE senior leadership to prepare for whatever decision is made.  The coming months will continue to have many uncertainties; our goal is to continue to safely  deliver education services and equitable learning opportunities for students to the best of our ability regardless of the circumstances.  We continue to appreciate your partnership and support in this.  As soon as we have more detailed information, it will be communicated to Vanier families.
I’d like to congratulate Vanier’s grade 9 students on completion of this step in your educational journey.  It’s disappointing that we could not all be together for an event that would provide celebration and closure for the school year, along with recognition for significant achievements.  Having just joined the Vanier community in January, I was looking forward to building the kind of relationships with students, parents and staff that make farewells so meaningful.  Sadly, that opportunity as limited, but I know that in the future we’ll do our best to create a moment where we can all come back together to acknowledge what was achieved.
There are some departing grade 9 students I’d like to recognize specifically; every year Kiwanis awards certificates and an engraved watch to students who have made a positive difference in the school community.  This year’s recognized recipients are:
Jace H.
Jorja B.
Rylie W.
Sloane T.
Ella C.
Sydnee T.
Mei-Lin D.
Robert L.
Ellen L.
Jakob V.
Congratulations to the recipients!
Additionally, every year two students are recognized by Education Matters with the Gary Weimann Award.  This recognition comes with financial component that may be used to further educational programs, exchange programs or as donations to preferred charitable groups. 
The grade 9 students put forward for recognition this year are:
Anne V and Ryland C
Again, congratulations to these deserving students.

I want to thank the Vanier community for the welcome afforded to  myself and Ruth Radetzky.  It’s been an interesting journey these last six months, and we look forward continuing to support learning for Vanier students in the coming year.  Mme Radetzky was named permanently to her position and will be with us again in the fall; we look forward to her continuing support of French language learning and all aspects of school life.  We wish you a safe and relaxing summer break.
