CHS: Inspiring girls to discover and pursue their personal exellence.

Last Friday, the CHS Parents’ Auxiliary hosted the Year-End BBQ on campus. And while the end of the year included many in-person events, the barbecue was symbolic of a community emerging from a pandemic—students, parents, guardians and staff all together in a festive atmosphere.

As we moved through 2021-2022, the community experienced another year of the pandemic; however, this was met with confidence. The province rolled up its sleeves on immunization, health and safety measures became second nature and restrictions eased. It was wonderful to invite parents/guardians back onto campus for coffee and conversations, athletic competitions and arts celebrations in their many forms. Thank you for your continued vigilance and efforts to keep the campus open for students every day; I know how much effort and sacrifice this has required from everyone in our community. Looking at other jurisdictions, I know how fortunate we were in British Columbia to have two straight years of uninterrupted, in-person learning.

2021-2022 marked the launch of a series of community consultations to develop a new strategic plan for Crofton House School. The School engaged all constituents, students, alumnae, parents, guardians and staff to reflect on the School’s strengths, challenges and possibilities. Information collected in surveys, focus groups and town halls provided thoughtful and insightful reflections on the School and illuminated the complex dynamics shaping CHS.

As the year draws to a close, Crofton House’s leadership team, with the Board’s support, are consolidating the input we have gathered to articulate a strategic plan and guide the School toward 2030 and beyond. There is strong support for the School to develop a strategy rooted in three commitments: belonging, agility and responsibility. Based on the consultation process, I am confident we are on the right path and eager to share a draft plan with the community during the fall of 2022.

I wish everyone a summer of fun, relaxation and connections with family and friends. Thank you for your steadfast support of the School and its endeavours. For those departing, best wishes for the future, wherever it may take you. You will always have a place at Crofton House School—thank you for being part of our community.

Over this past year, dozens of students from the Math Unbounded club have attended contests including the Canadian Mathematical Gray Jay Competition, Canadian Intermediate and Senior Mathematics Contests, Math Challengers and other major competitions offered by the University of Waterloo. Almost 30 students had their achievements recognised in front of their peers at a recent assembly.

The Class of Titanium ‘22, led by Grad Captains Sierra and Kristen, selected the Cinderella Project to raise money for and donate to as a grad class. This year, they raised $1,297.15, which will be used to purchase items for Cinderella Project 2023 grads. Well done!

This year’s Croftony Awards have been handed out in the Drama Department, with all of the flair and pizzazz that one would expect from such a ceremony.

The Year-End BBQ, in-person for the first time in three years, was a huge success and possibly the largest turnout the school has ever seen. A huge thank you to the CHS Parents’ Auxiliary, parent volunteers, Sage Dining and the CHS facilities team for their hard work in bringing the event together. Highlights on Vidigami.

Senior Kindergarten students showed their thanks and appreciation to staff at Crofton House by giving them cans of soda, ice cream sandwiches and hand-made thank you cards.

Despite a last-minute weather delay, the Junior School and ECE sports days were a big hit, full of joy, laughter and House spirit. Highlights for both are available on Vidigami.

The Crofton Falcons varsity basketball team welcomed students from Saint George’s to the court for a highly entertaining face-off in front of a raucous crowd. Though the Saints came out on top, the Falcons challenged them every step of the way.

Congratulations to all of the athletes who competed in the BC School Sports Provincial Track & Field Championships in Langley, bringing home the Girls AA title for 2021-2022 and a fine banner to hang in the Athletics Centre.

Since January, Entrepreneurship 12 have been working to “sell possibility”, in collaboration with Digital Media 12. As their journey culminated this week, we spoke with students and their teacher Mr Tran to lean more about their various projects. Read all about it on the CHS blog.
