Update – Make Your Voices Heard! – Letter to the VSB Regarding Kindergarten Intake

Thank you to parents who signed our letter and for your personal letters to the VSB regarding Kindergarten Intake for 2017/18 and beyond. We have a received a response from the VSB, you can read it here
We know parents are concerned about this response.  A decrease in capacity for Kindergarten enrolment impacts parents across Vancouver, but choice programs like Trafalgar’s French immersion are disproportionately impacted.  We are reaching out to other affected schools to gather more information and coordinate a parent response.

Trafalgar School could not manage without them! That is why we invite all these wonderful volunteers to a Tea Party on May 16th,​ between 2:30 and 4:00 pm in the library. Invitations will be sent out but we hope any parent who has participated in our school’s success, will come and enjoy some time with other volunteers, school administrators and staff.
