On September 14, 2019, the graduation years of 1968 through 1972 hosted a 50ish reunion. Over 300 attended with many from outside of the 5 years also in attendance.
It was a fantastic evening of dining and dancing to Souled Out, one of Vancouver’s R&B bands.
The evening was a resounding success.
All proceeds from the event will be going to the Britannia Support Society.
Congratulations to everyone for a very successful night. A great time was had by all,
The success is due all to the effort and time that 5 reunion committees put towards the event over the last couple of years.
Check out these photos to see what a great time everyone was having.
We have posted a lot about Ivy lately and her achievements in table tennis. The icing on the cake is the U18 Bronze medal at the 2019 Pan Am Games for Canada’s women’s team. Congratulations to Ivy and her teammates.
Earlier this month, Ivy also won gold in U18 girls doubles as well as Girls Team at the Canadian Junior National Championships.
Congratulations on a phenomenal achievement. Congratulations to Ivy and her teammates.
Ivy Liao was the recipient of the Rotary Hoopathon Scholarships at the year’s graduation ceremonies. She was also chosen from the Graduating Class of Britannia Senior Secondary to be the Valedictorian. Ivy has also received throughout the years support from the BSS. Ivy is representative of the Youth we want to support.
Here is a quote of appreciation from Ivy for the support she received along with a link to an interview she did at the Canadian Junior Table Tennis championships where she has qualified for the Pan American Games.
Thank you and the Rotary Clubs once again for all the support you’ve given me recently and throughout my high school journey. Below is the link to the interview from the 2019 Canadian Junior National Championships that you commented on Facebook!
Thank you so much once again, and I hope to see you around!
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!
