The Britannia Support Society is pleased to have contributed donations towards a Playland Educational Field trip for Britannia marketing and phisics students and the support was much appreciated.
Everyone had a blast, and we definitely enjoyed a different way of learning. This year more students, from Marketing 11/12 and Physics 11/12, were able to attend the field trip. Students had to complete either a Physics or Marketing worksheet, which allowed us to see how Physics/ Marketing is applied to real life. We were able to physically experience circular motion on the Musical Express and learn which points of the roller coaster had more potential/kinetic energy. Without your generous contributions, this field trip wouldn’t have been possible. It truly means a lot, thank you very much.
Ivy Liao, Rose Huang and Jasleen Bahia brought the 2019 Championship banner to Brit! Our boys team placed 13th but were close to the top 8. And Peter Joe, Brit Class of ‘78 presented the banner on behalf of BC School Sports. Ivy and Rose also placed 2nd and 3rd in the Girls Singles. Congratulations!

Planning is underway. 5 graduating years (1968 to 1972) are hosting a blowout reunion for all Brit Alumni to come together and remember and reminisce about the past and share memories.
This Joint Reunion is scheduled for Saturday, September 14. 2019 at the Croatian Cultural Centre in the heart of East Vancouver and will include dinner and a live band. The cost will be $80 per person and any surplus will be donated to the Britannia Support Society.

We are really looking forward to seeing you in the Fall of 2019 so please plan to be around and if you are from out of town, plan your vacation to Vancouver now!!!
Grade 7 and grade 8 girls got together to play basketball, make connections and lessen the anxiety of the transition to high school.
Senior players coached and refereed but also shared their own experiences when they came to Britannia.
It was a fun filled two hours in the Brit gym and made possible by Mitra Tshan and grade 7 Strathcona teacher Doug Sherrit.
The grade 8’s pulled off a one point win to maintain bragging rights!
