V.J.M. Career Fair

Our school is seeking adult volunteers who are employed in trades & professional fields to take part in a career fair. This event will empower students to make decisions for the rest of their K-12 educational experience and beyond that will set them on the path to achieving their career goals. Your role would be as someone employed in a particular field who can, through short presentations, share valuable insight with our students about how you reached your position. We would like you to refer to the value of school subjects in your work as appropriate. You will help students learn the realities of your job, including your responsibilities, and the impacts – good or otherwise – that your job has on your life.

If you are interested, please contact rmullan@gsacrd.ab.ca by April 7, 2015.

District Faith Theme

The greatest promise for all of our students this year will be a new faith theme. Along with the other schools in our district, we at VJM are, Shepherding Our Flock … Called to Love One Another . To this end, VJM will continue its proud legacy of focusing on community service and social justice projects, as well as exploring ways to enhance faith discovery within the classroom and celebrations that are held throughout the school year.
