Last Thursday, October 24, the English side of Massey-Vanier had its open house. Students who may be attending next year were invited to come to the high school to see what the school has to offer. This is the fiftieth anniversary of the school. There is an amazing tiled mosaic outside the main door commemorating the anniversary. The idea began on the French side. Their kiln was malfunctioning, so they made overtures to the art teacher on the English side, Tanya Auclair. Students from both sides ended up collaborating on the mural. When the sun hits the mirrored tiles, it is quite spectacular. Massey-Vanier has developed a pamphlet focusing on pride in the school, including pride in academic achievement, pride in the arts, pride in athletics, pride in student support, and pride in student involvement. The letters in PRIDE reflect positivity, respect, integrity, dedication, and effort. See full story in the Oct. 29 edition of the Brome County News.
