Hello Trafalgar Families
Some of you may have heard the news by now, but it is with mixed emotions we share that our Vice Principal Mr. Singh will be moving on from Trafalgar starting August 1st. The amazing news is that he will become a Principal with the Vancouver School Board. A huge congratulations to you! The students have come to know and love you in what seems like too short a time with our community and you will be greatly missed.
We are pleased to update you that we have had a number of parents come forward with interest in joining the PAC Executive next year so our thanks to you all - we are looking good. Parents can still be involved in school activities and planning and we ask you to fill out the volunteer form to express your interest and connect with us. We are all looking forward to the International Dinner on Friday at 6:30pm so please join us. Lastly, these flowers were sent to our wonderful staff and teachers on behalf of the entire PAC to show our appreciation for all their hard work this year!
Virtual International Dinner is Friday
Prizes to be won - log on from 6:15pm
We hope to have our Trafalgar Community join us for this school-wide event at 6:30pm this Friday. Listen carefully to the presentations as there will be prizes!
Trafalgar is fortunate to have such wonderful cultural diversity at our school. We invite you to bring a screen to your dinner table and join us for 1) Cultural presentations from our Trafalgar families including Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Vietnamese, Israel, Irish, Canadian and Turkish heritage; 2) Live Trivia Contest with Prizes; 3) Meet and Greet breakout rooms.
1st place prize is a $100 DaDa Sushi gift card, generously donated by one of the PAC members and there will be 10 further prizes of $20 Amazon gift cards sponsored by the PAC. There is a lot to look forward to, so do not miss this event!
For many, screens aren’t usually allowed at the dinner table, but we hope an exception can be made for our community dinner this Friday night. Our Trivia Contest will be using Kahoot, an online app many students are familiar with. You can play online in a browser or download the Kahoot app onto a device. If you have multiple students playing and have the resources, you may want to prepare the app on those devices before Friday.
To join the event please go to trafalgarpac.ca to access the Zoom link right before the event.
You can start to log in at 6:15pm.

Honouring Red Dress Day at Trafalgar
This Wednesday, 5 May is the National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG). On this day of national importance we can honour the MMIWG by embracing and supporting community healing. Red calls attention to the spirit to help us honour those who left us too soon. The school is recognizing this day by asking all students to wear red.
Read-a-thon Results - thank you Division 9!
Thank you all for participating in the Trafalgar read-a-thon. It has been fun organizing it, and we are sad that it is over. There are 3 winning classes that have worked really hard throughout the month of March and April. In first place… Mme Laure’s class who has raised over $210! In second place… Mme Jacquet’s class with $171! And last of all, in 3rd place… Mr. Wong’s class with $64! Congratulations also to Division 9 – we read a LOT in March. Well done everyone! So far Trafalgar has raised $1,089 for Backpack Buddies and BC Children’s Hospital just by reading. Go Trafalgar!
