LaSalle College Vancouver High School tested their virtual classrooms on March 12 and rolled them out on the 16th, so were well ahead of the curve. The timing coincided with the completion of the second semester, with final projects to submit and cumulative exams to write. “It was an exhilarating challenge,” says Paul Cohee, Principal - which the students enthusiastically rose to meet.
Principal Cohee says the move to virtual classes "has taken the entire community to embrace the challenge and the opportunities that emerge through crisis.” The school’s third semester launched in April, and will be completed entirely online. The new learning experience includes learning platforms as well as a variety of school life activities promoting connection, creative engagement, and fun.
This month, High School students and teachers came together to compete in a cook-off challenge. Everyone received a new apron and was asked to put it to use by cooking one of their favorite meals at home. The inspiration for this challenge came from LaSalle College Vancouver's Culinary School, which often while on campus the High School students could see hard at work in the campus' kitchens.

Earlier in the third semester, the LaSalle College Vancouver (LCV) High School also put together a video to showcase how they are still staying connected throughout this time. The activity also promotes the importance of physical activity even in times of social distancing, which is part of the high school curriculum.
