Welcome to Virden Collegiate Institute
“Modeling respect, learning and responsibility to motivate students to become productive, caring citizens.”
Hello everyone, hope all is well!! Definitely looking forward to the weather warming up a little, as I think many others are as well. As we work our way through second semester VCI continues to be a very busy place. With curling, hockey and basketball seasons finishing up – a huge thanks to the coaches who support our teams through out the year – much appreciated!! Looking forward to our trip to the career symposium with our Grade 10 and 11 students. This year we have added the opportunity for our students to tour either ACC or BU in the afternoon, which I think will be a rewarding venture for everyone!! Our Grad 2014 executive is hard at work preparing for June, and I am learning lots along the way, but definitely looking forward to it!!
“Stop being who you were and become who you are.”
