Tree day
More than 30 Vanier staff members gathered during their annual retreat Friday to plant a tree to celebrate student success and commemorate their commitment to excellence in education. A plaque will be made for the site. G.P. Vanier Principal Susan Coates said G.P. Vanier was awarded a Certificate of Recognition for very high achievement in the areas of Education Quality, School Improvement and the Program of Studies. These awards are given to schools as part of a division recognition program (BELRA Awards) to congratulate students and teachers on their accomplishments. The success of all schools in the division has led to GSACRD being recognized as the top performing school division in the province. Posing for the photo were Dolores Ricard, Cathy Laliberte, Claire Filipchuk, Diane Hofman, Marlene Therres and Diane Mochnach. – Lucie Roy Photo
