Fundraising and Events
Saint John Vianney High School’s propensity to generate excellent students and outstanding graduates year after year, is to a certain extent, a result of the generous support and allegiance of our school community – our parents, alumni and friends.
Saint John Vianney High School has several fundraising events during the school year that award everyone the opportunity to support our curriculum and extra-curricular offerings. Please plan on taking part in one or more of these events. Not only do they provide funding over and above the tuition collected, they help to develop strong friendships and school spirit for all. Community dynamism is not only strong and enduring at Saint John Vianney High School but key to its future.
