Social Studies G10-12, Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre field study

"The Vancouver Holocaust Centre Society was founded in 1983 by survivors of the Holocaust. The founders’ goal, realized in 1994 was to leave a permanent legacy in the form of the Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre devoted to Holocaust based anti-racism education.

The VHEC, an acclaimed teaching museum has been devoted to Holocaust based anti-racism education. The VHEC’s mission is to promote human rights, social justice and genocide awareness through education and remembrance of the Holocaust." from Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre web site.

A very powerful experience for our students.

It is with a shared love of the arts and arts education that Ms. Ark has passed the Sensei Award to our wonderfully talented music teacher Ms. Renee Pasula. This common passion is most evident when you happen to walk into one of Renee`s classes. In a world where Art and Culture is sometimes undervalued, the importance of music in the curriculum is not lost in the Alcuin community.
Renee began her teaching career at Alcuin by teaching the first intergenerational classroom on the north shore, combining our students with residents of Summerhill Parc, a local retirement home. In Renee`s non teaching time she is a member of not one, but two bands, a 70`s cover band and a Motown band. Great talent Ms. Pasula! Thank you for your love of and commitment to Music.

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!
