Canucks Visit Streetfront

November 9, 2015 Leave a comment

After our return from the bowling tournament we had our annual visit from Vancouver Canucks Rod Brathwaite (Manager, Community Partnerships & Hockey Development). Rod was joined this time by Alfred De Vera (Media Relations) who was eager to meet and speak with our students.

They left us with a gift of box seats for Dec. 26th game against the Edmonton Oilers. Thank you Canucks for this great opportunity!

3rd Annual Alt. Bowling Tournament

November 7, 2015 Leave a comment

Today Streetfront participated in the 3rd Annual Alt. Bowling Tournament at REVS along with 10 other VSB alternative schools. While we didn’t win the Bergeron Cup we had several strikes, too many gutter balls to count and a lot of fun! Thanks to Foundation Alt. for hosting yet another fun tournament and congratulations to Outreach Alternative for winning the tournament!!

I wish the general public can see these tournaments, the annual Arts Fair and Sports Days when Vancouver’s Alt. Schools come together because they would see a diverse, talented and energetic group of youth.

The Vancouver School Board and Britannia Community Services Centre in partnership have a carving pavilion on the Britannia campus. One of the first creations to come from this pavilion was a wonderful traditional First Nations canoe. On September 21 Streetfront & Outreach Alternatives joined VSB representatives and First Nations community members at Cates Park in North Vancouver for the blessing of the VSB canoe. It was an honour to be witnesses to the blessing.

Jr. Alternative Volleyball Tournament

December 6, 2014 Leave a comment

This years VSB Junior Alternative was a smaller this year but the competition was still there. As usual we have strong interest in tournament play that we fielded two teams again – Team ‘Street’ and Team ‘Front’. Team Street dominated the tournament winning all of their games placing them in 1st Place. Team Front was in a three-way tie going into the finals but succeeded in getting a 2nd Place finish!

Thank you to Outreach and Eastside for your competition and participation!

We had 18 current and past Streetfront students run in the annual Seattle Marathon. The weather was cold but sunny and the youth did a fantastic job, especially those running their first full or half marathon! Well done all!!

Vancouver Alternative School’s Annual Volleyball Tournament

February 7, 2014 Leave a comment

Streetfront hosted their annual volleyball tournament. This is always a highlight of the year with over 100 kids in attendance, all vying for that coveted trophy. The competition was fierce with numerous games coming right down to the final point.

As the 6 game round robin came to an end we had 4 teams remaining – 2 senior alternative programs: Spectrum and Outreach and 2 junior alternative programs: Streetfront and Eastside. Once the dust settled – Spectrum was crowned champions.

Thanks to all the students and staff who made this such a memorable tournament.
