Whether it was the Mothers’ Club of old, or the VCPA today, parent service to Vancouver College helps build this wonderful community we call “home away from home.”
Mayfair is a Vancouver College signature event held each year, usually on the Saturday before Mothers Day. This event is as popular with the school community today as it was when it was first held in 1928.
Mothers Christmas Tea, a long-standing tradition at Vancouver College, is one of the Vancouver College Parents Association’s three main social events, and a wonderful kick off to the Christmas season.
Open House provides an annual opportunity for the school to throw open its doors and showcase all it has to offer to prospective students and their families and welcome those curious about what life at Vancouver College is like.
At the turn of Fall, as students and families relish in the last warm days and begin to settle into the routines of the new academic year, nothing quite gathers the spirit of the school community and mobilizes all students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 like the Vancouver College Walkathon.
The ultimate parents’ date night, Finnegan Ball seats parents in the same grade or same team together for a formal dinner. Away from the dinner table, guests dance to the live band, pose for a professional portrait, or bid on one-of-a-kind Vancouver College souvenirs, among other gifts at the silent auction.
