I would like to congratulate the Class of 2017 for completing their studies at VWS with a beautiful Graduation Ceremony on Sunday. We wish you all the best life has to offer.

You are warmly invited to attend a Year End Picnic at Princess Park on Friday afternoon, from 1:00 – 4:00 pm, following early dismissal. Please bring: potluck snacks and treats to share; your own dishes, cutlery and cups; a blanket or something comfortable to sit on; and games to share & play on the lawn (croquet, bocce, badminton, frisbee, soccer balls and nets, etc). We ask that all children are supervised at this out of school event and that we are respectful of the neighbours and the natural habitat.

If you are looking for something new for you children to try this summer, consider signing up for our Summer Camp which will run from June 26 – 30. Find out more on our website here: and register with Ronaye at

Please check with your Class Rep(s) regarding any year end cards of gifts.  There are now cards for subject teachers at Reception in the Grade School.
