2005 TRIP FOR TOLERANCE:
ANOTHER UNQUALIFIED SUCCESS

For the third time (November 2000, March 2004 and March 2005), students from Vanier College made the trip to New York City and Washington to express their fundamental belief in fostering tolerance between people of all cultures, races and religions. Many thanks go to the event organizers and chaperones who made this year's event a memorable one. We invite you now to view photos taken by participating students.

ONE FINAL NOTE: Our fundraising special event, BEATLES NIGHT held on the evening of February 10th in the Auditorium was a tremendous success. Most in attendance agreed it was the most fun they'd had at any similar event in a long, long time. The group, Replay, Canada's #1 Beatles tribute band, was simply amazing. Their imitation of the Beatles was spot on. With much singing-along, clapping and dancing in the aisles, what a wonderful way to raise funds for such a worthy cause!
