Student life at CHS continues to be as vibrant, engaging and innovative as ever! Let’s take a peak at some of the fun activities and initiatives in and around the Junior and Senior Schools this past January and February.
Hi everyone, we are the Racial Justice Alliance club leaders. Our names are Sunny Sun, Sheyda Lindsay, and Sophie Winder-Berkey. Over the summer, we were inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, and hosted an open forum where students and staff were able to share their opinions on racial issues in our Crofton community.
We had the chance to meet with Jennifer as she concludes her term as president, and looks ahead for the Alumnae Association.
Ena Harrop, Head of School takes a moment to talk about her first year at Crofton House and give us a look ahead at what the future holds.
Damienne Darby ’87 describes herself as a ‘lifer’, having attended Crofton House from Grade 1 through Grade 12. She says from day one, she could see from the surroundings and “amazing” teachers that she had become part of a very special place. “It was a wonderful nurturing environment.”
This past July, Crofton House hosted a virtual TEDxCHS event, led by Student Creative Director Vivienne Li’ 21. TEDxCHS provided high school students across Vancouver an opportunity to share meaningful topics connected to purpose. This year’s theme, ‘Purpose’, coincides with the event’s mission to inspire other students to take initiative in their interests and make a difference in their community by offering an opportunity for speakers to share ‘ideas worth spreading’.
Vivienne Li shares with us her TEDx experience, what inspired her to bring TEDx to Crofton House, and the last-minute changes they made to host this event virtually.
Over the past few weeks, you may have heard from Morgan Pulkinen, our newest addition in Advancement. She began in January 2020 as Manager, Events, and we are now pleased to add Alumnae Relations to her role, as of September, 2020.
We sat down with Janelle Caballero, Senior School Career Education Department Head, to gather a better understanding of the recently created Career Ed Department as a result of the BC Ministry of Education’s new Curriculum
We took this end of year opportunity to sit down with Head of School, Ena Harrop to ask a few questions about her experiences in her first year at Crofton House School.
The school year of 2019-2020 has been one full of changes and challenges. It is a year that has given us as a school and each of us as individuals the opportunity to learn how we can do things better. What is our personal lens through which we view the world? How can we change that lens to ensure that we are helping move the world forward in a way that embraces all, gives voice to those who are marginalized and educates our future leaders to be compassionate and brave?
