Vouchers must be presented at the theatre on the day of the concert in exchange for a ticket to the show. Seating begins at 1:15 pm and the box office opens at 1 pm.

Dress Code Reminder - Since the Grade School needs to act as a community, and specifically a harmonious community, it is important that we all refresh ourselves with, and actively uphold, the dress code. While one may not personally agree with each point under the code, your support is needed to help demonstrate what it means at this school to be "living in community."
Thank you from the College of Teachers


My name is Kaliyana and I am in the grade 12 class, currently working on my grade 12 project. My topic is to do with rap music. For the artistic component I have been trying to create a song. I have been trying to do this by myself for quite some time, but when it comes to the recording and making of the actual music, I have no idea where to start! If anyone can help me or knows someone that could help me, please let me know, I would appreciate it so much!
My phone number is (778) 995-0524 and my email is
Feel free to get a hold of me for anything that might help!
Thank you, Kaliyana

Thank you ~ Sonia Plewa and the Class of 2017
The Class of 2017 is working hard to achieve their vision of spending two weeks abroad on a service volunteer trip in June.



While students were on break this week, VWS faculty and staff have been engaged in Professional Development workshops. It's been a very rich and full agenda covering singing, whittling, eurythmy, department sessions and in depth explorations of both decolonization and reconciliation (we took part in the Blanket Activity from Kairos), and gender and sexual diversity in schools. We wish to extend our gratitude to guest facilitators Amy Parent, PhD and Hélène Frohard-Dourlent, PhD for sharing your compassion, wisdom and expertise with us.
Many blessings
