Vimy 2017!

The Social Science Department is heading back to Europe!

In 2017 Canada will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge and we received approval last June from the board to attend the festivities. We will again be traveling alongside our sister-school St. Ignatius on this 10 day pilgrimage. The tour, known as Vimy 2017: Beaches and Battlefields, will take us to many World War I and II battlefields, as well as Amsterdam and Paris. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity…don’t miss the chance!
