Dear Parents and Students,
The school year is winding down, but we are still very busy at Vanier. With the sun being out and the nice weather greeting us every day, we should all take advantage of the season. Having some time to study can be a challenge when the sun is out, but this is the time to put in all your effort to finish your courses with success and confidence. Please reach out for help if you are struggling-we have lots of resources available for you.
So we can say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper, so I will have no fear…” ~Hebrews 13:6
Dear Lord, I will not be anxious about my circumstances because I choose to put all my faith and trust in you. You will never let me down because you are always faithful. Amen.

For students who are struggling in their courses, you should receive a report from your teachers indicating what your progress is and what you can do to improve your marks before exams. This may be in the form of an email, phone call or letter in the mail. If you are unsure, please contact the teacher.
We often see attendance fall off in May when the weather gets warm. This year more than ever before, students need to be in school as much as possible. Please let us know if you child will not be there.
We have been told there will be summer school running this year. Typically students are able to complete math or English courses they have attempted throughout the year and earned at least a 40% mark in. We do not know at this point exactly which courses will be offered or the format it will be offered in, but as we find out details, we will pass the information along to you.
First Nations Education Directorate Nutrition Programs Feast
A big thank you goes out to the First Nations Education Directorate for providing the entire school with a delicious feast last Friday. The food was plentiful, healthful and expertly prepared. Thanks to the organizers at FNED and to Ms. Wallace who made all the arrangements at the school. Well done!
Have a good week,
Katrina Brogdon, Principal and Alethea Wallace, Vice-Principal
