Established in 1993, the Britannia Support Society provides a bridge in expanding the opportunities and means available to Britannia students.
The Society supports a wide variety of student activities and programs: from athletic equipment and uniforms to field trips, academics, with the goal of enhancing student learning and engagement.
The BSS serves the needs of Britannia students directly. In this time of rapidly changing technology, knowledge and growth, the Society feels that making opportunities accessible to every student is not only important but can make a lasting impact that continues well beyond the school walls.
The Britannia Support Society works with its collective knowledge and expertise to ensure all donations will expand resources in maximizing activities and programs for academic, athletic and artistic opportunities for all Britannia students.
In Vancouver one in five kids live in poverty and in the Strathcona and Grandview-Woodland neighbourhoods these numbers are even higher.
The Britannia Support Society established in 1993 is dedicated to fostering and maintaining educational, social, cultural and athletic opportunities for Britannia students.The COVID-19 Pandemic has made this work even more necessary. We want to ensure that this unprecedented threat does not disproportionately affect the most vulnerable in our community. Youth in the area deserve every possible opportunity for a shot at success, to be actively engaged at Britannia, to play sports, to compete, to draw, to paint, to design, to play, to sing. They deserve to have the tools to fully participate in the wonder of the city, the province, and the world.
Your financial support is needed so that Britannia kids can realize their potential.
