Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Guardians of Vanier Students,

Firstly, I would like to welcome all new families to the Vanier Community.  We have an excellent staff and will do our very best to support you through this journey together.  Secondly, I hope this message finds all of you faring well.  It has been an amazing summer to say the least.

We have been busily preparing and planning for the 2015-16 school year since last spring.  We are anticipating an exceptionally busy opening.  Your child and your time are important to us.  I do not want anyone to feel that concerns or issues are not being heard.

In an effort to be respectful and honour your time and your needs, I am requesting that you do not make an appointment during the three days of school opening.  That will give us an opportunity to deal with emergent matters efficiently and be in a better place to address your questions without interruptions.

We are currently poring over class issues, looking at timetable issues, and resolving registration issues.  To those of you who have requested a placement, I am asking you to remain patient until we see our actual student population.  That way we can be confident in offering a program for your child.

We look forward to working with each and every one of you this year.  Please feel free to send me an email if you have a question or concern that is pressing and needs immediate attention.
