Vanier Valhalla a celebration of welcome week at local high school

Seniors take starring role in welcoming new Grade 9s to Vanier Collegiate
When the second Valhalla was held at Vanier Collegiate four years ago, the young Grade 9s taking part in their first week of high school were undoubtedly wide-eyed and excited for the new adventures ahead of them.

Those Grade 9s are today’s Grade 12s, and they took their turn at leading the annual welcome week celebration at Vanier on Thursday morning.

Participants were sorted into one of four groupings, named after the houses from the Harry Potter series of books – Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw. From there, it was all about fun competition and games, ranging from chants and dancing to a massive rock-paper-scissors competition.

The event included a GymBlast filled with activities in the afternoon before moving out to Wakamow Valley on Friday morning for an Amazing Race Adventure.

Here’s a selection of photos from the Thursday morning of Valhalla!
