First VLC Terry Fox Run was a Success!

We held our first Terry Fox Run as a school this year and were the only virtual high school in Canada to participate.  We raised awareness of the importance on cancer research and contributed $2508.00 to this cause.  We are very proud of our students for their significant efforts and for getting outside and being active!

Week of Kindness - Student Council Competition

It’s that time of year again—Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week! Over the course of this week, Ontario schools are going to be immersed in the act of raising awareness about bullying and standing up against it.  We are challenging all students to create artistic pieces of any kind—poetry, film production, poster, drawing, etc.—focused on raising awareness about bullying, the effects of bullying, or how to stop bullying.
