Congratulations to our own Janet Fraser, Laurer parent, PAC Co-Chair, and new Vancouver School Board Trustee-Elect!
We are delighted to have the benefit of Janet's in-depth understanding of Vancouver schools in her new role as a trustee. Sadly, she will be stepping down as Laurier PAC Co-Chair, but she will have the opportunity to reach more students, parents and staff with her broader mandate as a trustee for our district.
Our recent Bhangra program was very popular with both students and staff. We also heard positive comments from many parents who came out to our Bhangra celebration performance last Friday on November 21st. Thank you for your continued willingness to support these special programs for our students.
Earlier in the month, we had our annual Remembrance Day assembly and once again, our Laurier Choir and Strings students, led by Ms. Chung and Mr. Lam respectively, provided wonderful musical selections to accompany our program. We are always pleased to have parents join us for assemblies and it was nice to see so many parents and guardians in the audience that day.
Also this month, many classes have been going on a variety of field trips and having special class presentations. We have had an owl visit, field trips to HR MacMillan Space Centre, the Vancouver Art Gallery, and the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. UBC engineering students recently visited a number of classes to share their expertise. Be sure to take a look at the student writing and art work on the bulletin boards around the school.
