A Message to our VPPS Community

To our Ventura Families

As we head into the summer we would like to thank all of you for your help and support during these unusual times.  The pandemic has shown us that we can overcome many obstacles that come our way.  In spite of the unknowns we were still able to accomplish many things:

  1. Spirit and wellness initiatives for both Students and Parents.
  2. A school wide library initiative that included a physical refresh and an inclusive art project.
  3. Continued work with Indigenous artist Deron Douglas, Outstanding Performances from Roseneath Theatre and a dynamic student council.

Congratulations to our Grade 8 graduates.

Wishing all our students, staff, families and community members a safe summer.  Enjoy the time off, you’ve earned it !!!!
