Excellence: to be the best we can be, to seek excellence in Christian character.

For the months of January and February Georges Vanier will be focusing on the Gospel Value of Excellence;

“I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain ‘Move from here to there’ 

and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20

Best Buy partnership - Great Christmas Gift Idea!

posted Dec 5, 2016, 8:37 AM by Heather MacPhee   [ updated Dec 5, 2016, 9:20 AM ]

Georges Vanier has a partnership with Best Buy to provide technological devices (chromebooks, laptops, and other devices) at a discount to our school community.  To be most effective in today’s learning environments, students benefit significantly from access to technology at school and home, as technology is a vital tool for their learning and productivity. The school board invests heavily to support access to technology for students and staff across our schools. Devices are made available to students in our school; however, we have received many requests from students and parents asking for advice on what device they should purchase if they wish to bring their own device to school.
We have established an optional purchase program with Best Buy for those who are interested in purchasing their own device.  Parents and students may purchase any brand of device from any company as all devices will work on the school network. Some of these devices are exclusive to our Best Buy partnership and not available to others through Best Buy.
The technologies listed on the Best Buy portal are only recommendations. Best Buy is offering discounts on protection plans and other supplies and peripherals, but parents may choose to purchase from any vendor.  As you will see on the Portal, we are recommending Chromebooks as a simple, safe, efficient and cost effective device. We also help equip these with Board purchased software through the student Google accounts and the use of the student portal.  You can access the letter describing the program in greater detail here. If purchasing, open your shopping cart, enter promotional CODE BBY80BYOD16 and checkout. 
You can access the information poster here. Please contact the school if you have any questions.
