Notice to Parents regarding outside organizations offering non-VSB, non-Britannia travel packages and tours for students. Please check with the school about any such tours, as many trips that might appear to be school sanctioned are not related to the school or the Vancouver School Board in any way. Britannia staff will always issue official notice and Field Trip forms for any school/VSB sanctioned field trip. If you’ve not seen such forms related to travel that your student mentions as related to school, always check with the Britannia office.
This information is very important so that you can be reached if an emergency happens at school. It must be kept up to date.
The Britannia Hockey Academy Information Night will be held on Tuesday, December 9th at 5:30pm in the staff room (on the 3rd floor). *This is for potential applicants interested in applying for the 2015-2016 school year.
Britannia Secondary and the Streetfront Alternative program are planning an epic event that is show-casing public education: We intend to hike 18 of our most resilient students to the top of Kilimanjaro Mountain! Of course our goal is bigger than reaching Uhuru Peak on Kilimanjaro- it is ultimately about changing the way inner-city youth see themselves and see our community; it is about dreaming big and believing in a broader community of care, whatever our life circumstances. And it’s also all about the amazing opportunities that are available in our Public Education system and the incredible people that make it happen. Check our website Street2Peak.com and perhaps make a donation.
