Student Life - Where You Belong
Drama, music, visual arts, physical and health education contribute to our being a triple "A" school i.e. Academics, Arts and Athletics.
Special events and assemblies could not happen without the excellent work of our skilled students who are part of the Vanier Stage Crew.
Among the highlights of student life at Vanier are our prom nights, school plays and our participation in drama festivals. Of particular note is our annual Vanier International Big Event (VIBE) - a weeklong multicultural celebration, marked by motivated student leadership, excitement and lots of learning.
