Welcome to Virden Collegiate Institute
“Modeling respect, learning and responsibility to motivate students to become productive, caring citizens.”
Hello Spring!! (we have been missing you) As we end up first term here in second semester, a reminder that report cards will be coming your way. Please make sure you take time to review your reports and if there are any concerns please make sure to let the office know. Teachers will be available on Thursday, April 17th from 12:30 – 4:00 for interviews, you are welcome to stop in or if you want to set up a specific time please email the teachers and set-up a specific time. A huge congrats to our Varsity Girls Basketball team on winning the AAA Provincial Basketball Championship. (A great example of hard working paying off – Great Job Coaches and Players!!) We are happy to announce that renovations have begun on our new Science Lab at VCI. It is causing a fair bit of shuffling and repositioning of classes but staff and students are doing their best to adjust!! Thanks! I have begun the planning for next year, and unfortunately the projected enrollment is down which is going to have significant negative impact on our staffing (approx. 2.5 FTE) We are all looking forward to registering our new Grade 9 and 10 students on Monday, April 14th, and then our rest of our students later that week. Please review the course option information located under the Student Links tab on this website for a complete list of courses and their descriptions. Thanks!! Take Care!!
