The Vanier Catholic Secondary School Booster Card is a bit late, but is ready for distribution and sale! The sale of Booster Cards is the single major fund raising activity for the whole Vanier student community.
Our primary purpose with the Booster Cards is to raise funds to enhance the quality of student life for all students. As such, we ask each student to sell two Booster Cards.
This year, we hope to use the funds raised for the following:
We expect that each student will return the money (or return unsold cards) to the administration office by Friday, December 16.
We are fortunate to have the support of a number of Whitehorse businesses that graciously offer discounts for the cards. We are also grateful for the financial support of the community who purchase the cards to help us provide quality athletic, artistic and leadership opportunities for our students.
We are excited to have a great selection of both “one-time” and ongoing offers from local businesses on this year’s Booster Cards (some restrictions apply):
Each student who returns the money by December 16 will be entered into a draw to win one of two $100 cash prizes!
Teacher sponsors and coaches may sell additional booster cards for specific teams or fundraising purposes.
It is important for everyone to understand that the selling of booster cards is not for individual gain. The funds raised from the sale of these cards enhance a wide range of school events and activities.
If you have any questions or concerns about the sale of these cards, please don’t hesitate to contact the school

British Columbia is currently undergoing a Curriculum Redesign and Graduation Requirement review process. Yukon has also undergone a curriculum review process and will use B.C.’s new competency-based curriculum as a base, with additional and adaptations to fit our northern and Yukon First Nation contexts.
The Yukon Department of Education sets the graduation requirements and curricula for Yukon public schools, working closely with the B.C. Ministry of Education to ensure they are aligned and meet consistent standards.
Vanier Catholic Secondary School Council invites you to a presentation by Nicole Morgan, Assistant Deputy Minister (Learning, Curriculum, and Assessment) to learn more about:
Changes to the B.C. Graduation Program (grades 10-12) and their Grades 10-12 draft curriculum; and
Changes to B.C. provincial exams and Yukon’s transition plan to support students during the overlap period between the old and new graduation programs over the next three years, starting in January 2017.
The presentation will take place at 7 pm on Tuesday, November 15 in the VCSS Learning Commons (Library) and would be of interest to parents/guardians of current Grade 8 & 9 students.
You can be assured that all Yukon students and parents/guardians will be kept up to date with any changes to Yukon's curriculum and graduation requirements should they change.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the school for more information.

Vanier is changing our approach from Parent-Teacher Interviews to Student Led Conferences. We will not be using the online booking system to schedule appointments this year. Rather, students will be leading the conversation with parents and the teacher may or may not join the conversation.
The conferences will be taking place on Thursday, November 24 from 3:30 to 8 pm. Dinner will be available for purchase in the cafeteria! Please see the brochure below for further details...
Our first mailing of the year will be going out this week and includes some very important information and forms which need to be returned to the school.
Please ensure that the forms (especially the Student Information Verification Form) is returned as soon as possible. Families who return all the forms and pay the Religious Education Fee prior to October 7 will be entered into a draw to win an iPad mini!
This year, families have 4 options to pay the Religious Education Fees:
