Awesome Alcuinites Cole P., Edward P. and Milo P. are all currently attending the World Scholar's Cup Championship in Athens, Greece. They're accompanied by their parents as well as Mrs. Ablett and her daughter Zoe.
Apart from the rigors of competition, they are having some fun and wonderful experiences seeing the sights of this ancient city. Can you imagine.... a scavenger hunt in the Parthenon?? Well done all of you!

G 9 and 10 students off for a 3 day adventure trip to Alice Lake and Paradise Valley. Mr. Wescott was lead teacher on this expedition. After departing from school around 9 AM, the group drove to Tunnel Bluffs trailhead just north of Lions Bay, for a rigorous hike of a fairly steep trail; this afforded a spectacular view of the southern end of Howe Sound. Next on the agenda....stand-up paddleboard (SUP) instruction and games at Alice Lake. Getting warm and dry at Sunwolf Resort in Paradise Valley at Squamish. Rock climbing and whitewater rafting on the Elaho River. Fantastic experience for everyone! ... See MoreSee Less

Your school awaits you!

Furniture has been moved, field studies sought out, pencils sharpened … Welcome (back) to Alcuin for the year 2016-2017!  Our teachers and staff are thrilled to have their students back, because it is for them that we do what we do, reimagining education every day.

How My Hobby Changed My Life
Alcuin’s Hailey C., fifteen, loves to drink tea and read books. To Hailey, “regenerate” (the theme of this year’s TEXxKids@BC) means “to restart” or to “begin again.” Her talk was about how she regenerated her passion for reading books into opportunities in the publishing industry.  It touched on how her hobby and passion for reading has helped her overcome depression.

She hopes her talk can inspire people never to give up their passion or hobby, no matter what people say.  Very well done, Hailey!
