    Social media has become an important means of communication and of seeking information for most people. It is proving to be of particular importance for our youth as technology has become a significant part of the identity of this generation. Unfortunately, increased technology has also resulted in new social issues. It is sometimes used as a means of cyber-bullying or an exchange of inappropriate information. It is up to us, as adults, to serve as proper role models with regards to technology use. We need to teach our children to respect the use of technology and to be good digital citizens.  In order to do this properly, we as adults must also learn to be good social citizens and to model appropriate use of social media. We must use social media tools like Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram,etc. appropriately, because our children are watching and emulating our behaviours. For more info around proper use of social media and good digital citizenship, please visit our website at:



    All schools in the AVRSB are required to hold 6 fire drills per year and 2 lockdown drills and 1 hold and secure drill.  These are conducted periodically and GVES has thus far has had 2 fire drills. A relocation drill is required once per year as well.
    GVES also has a crisis management committee to oversee any potential crisis that may arise and will follow the "Administrators' Book of Emergency Checklists" if required.  If you have any questions, please direct them to administration.
