ALL STUDENTS - What’s that outside the counselling suite?  Come on by and check out the large graphic poster outside the counselling.  This is a visual recording of a district wide student forum that took place in February.  14 DT students and 2 teachers were there to talk about learning in Vancouver Schools.  This poster highlights some of the big ideas that came out.              G.

ANNUAL LARRY YOUNG MEMORIAL RUN/WALK - Sergeant Larry Young was a former student & graduate of DT. As a member of the Vancouver Police Department, he also served as our school Liaison Officer before moving on to form the VPD’s Emergency Response Team (ERT). It was in his capacity as the leader of the ERT that Sergeant Young lost his life in the line of duty on Feb 2, 1987; While the team attempted to make an arrest, Larry was shot & killed by the suspect. A beloved member, friend, brother, husband, & father.  Sergeant Young is now remembered each year in the Annual Larry Young Memorial Run/Walk. All monies raised from this event are put towards scholarships to be given almost exclusively to graduates of DT who are planning to pursue a career in Law Enforcement. 

This year’s run is on Sunday, May 26 along the seawall in Stanley Park, 5 km in length starting and ending at the HMCS Discovery. Walkers start at 9:00 and runners at 9:30 AM. A buffet breakfast follows where acknowledgments, scholarships, and prizes will be presented. There are lots of fabulous door prizes, as well there is a prize for the largest team entry … last year DT came in third and we celebrated with a pizza party at the end of the school year! There are also prizes for the fastest male and fastest female walkers & runners. It really is a lot of fun! Will you come join in on the run this year!? Maybe we can even take first place!

Cost is $30 (payable ahead of time when you register online), or you can register in person & pay in the morning of the day of the run. Additionally, there is a cost of $10 cash for the breakfast (payable on run day on your way into the breakfast). Each participant also receives a beautiful VPD Larry Young Memorial T-shirt prior to the start of the run.  The run is less than two weeks away!
