All parents and guardians of Renfrew students are welcome to join us. The school is located in Vancouver at Rupert Street and East 22nd Avenue.

Apples for Apps

Thank you for supporting our first school fundraiser for the year. We were so pleased with how many families participated. Over 100 boxes were sold and it turns out if we had ordered extra we could have sold more. Those who purchased apples were pleased with how “crisp and delicious” the Okanagan products turned out to be! We can’t wait until next year!

Welcome Back

Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! Here is a summary of some important dates coming up. First off, our first PAC meeting will be on September 24th at 6:00 PM in the school library. It's a great chance to hear about school events, ask questions and meet the school principal and/or vic principal. All parents and guardians are welcome to attend. 

This year, hot lunches will start on Thursday, September 27th. The hot lunch program lets you have a break from preparing lunch while your kids get a delicious, healthy lunch at school. Coming up on September 28th is the Terry Fox Run. Parents and guardians are invited to run with their kids. We're also excited to announce there will be a pumpkin patch event at the school in late October.
