Congratulations on your success! We’re proud of your achievement and can’t wait to see what the future holds for you!



Hello All!  With second semester well underway our Grads look to close out their high school!  There is certainly lots for them to finish out, but thanks to the Grad committee Grad Day is coming together very nicely.  Grads make sure to check out the scholarships available to you as some of them require some leg work in order to complete the registration.  We are also beginning the planning for next year with our Grade 8’s coming over for a couple days of vocational exposure helping them select the courses they feel they will enjoy!  Welcome Grade 8’s enjoy!!  To  our Grade 9 – 11 students time to dig in and get those marks in a good place.  Remember – being here goes a long way in your academic success.

A “Thanks” going out to all of the VCI staff who support in making extra-curricular activities possible and successful.  Your time is greatly appreciated!!

I would like to welcome Mrs. Barkley and Mr. Goertzen to our staff, and wish Mrs. Mathieson and Mrs. Mitchell all the best with their new editions to their families.

Take Care
Mr. Keown
