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!
The Britannia Support Society, in partnership with the Variety Club, purchased a 24 passenger bus in June, 2016 to be used by Britannia Secondary, HUB elementary schools and HUB Service agencies.

Elaine Lee (Chiew) and Annie Choi, alumni from 1977, presented cheques to Andrew Schofield, Principal of Brit and to Mike Evans, President of Britannia Support Society to help Brit students realize their dreams and to realize their potential. The Class of ’77 40th Reunion was a tremendous success! So much so that grads decided, what the hell, let’s have a 41st reunion as well. Stay tuned!
