The Britannia Support Society was established in 1993 as an innovative funding resource that could provide assistance to the Britannia community for projects that enhance students’ educational and extra-curricular experiences. One of the Society’s earliest contributions was for the funding of a computer lab in the school.
The Britannia Support Society has contributed funds to a wide range of projects in recent years, including the following:
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.
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.
Brit’s Gym is Palatial!
Brit Support Society put the finishing touches on our new Gym A/B with a major contribution to the new score clock. Have a look at the pictures but why not come in person? The 40th Annual Bruin Invitational Basketball Tournament is January 16, 17 and 18. On the 16th our girls play at 12:00 noon and our boys play at 1:45 pm. Wear your colours!

Britannia athletes can compete with the best and BSS agrees! Eighteen Bruins were able to play basketball during the spring and summer for top level clubs because their fees were all or partially subsidized by the Brit Support Society. For five years our senior girls and boys basketball teams have been among the most successful programs in the province. To continue this success players need to play with the best but often it is the cost that stops our athletes. Players competed on Regional Provincial teams as well as for Triple Threat and All Ball clubs. New experiences were enjoyed and new friends were made as teams travelled throughout BC and the Pacific Northwest for tournament play. All of these players are the foundation of Britannia’s 2013 – 2014 teams!

One of the purposes of BSS is “to provide equipment, entry fees, travel expenses, and other funding for scholastic, athletic and artistic programs for students”. The Directors agree that our sports teams should look good. Check out our senior volleyball teams!
