LFAS is 25 Years Old!

The 2011-2012 school year marked the 25th silver anniversary of Langley Fine Arts School, and with the help of a few enthusiastic volunteers, the staff and students have celebrated accordingly.

Beginning on Monday, May 14th, daily events and celebrations were held throughout the school to commemorate this milestone event. Starting with a silver day and ending with an elementary celebration in the gym, this two week spirit dedication was a huge success, raising both school spirit and over $5000. Mr. Burns, the school custodian,  had the good humour to allow himself to be taped to the wall – for a price!  He agreed that if the students raised a minimum of $3500, he would endure the procedure.

Led by Cheryl Kondo, Sarah Barber, and Dean Travers, these events were carried out by a fantastic group of Fine Arts volunteers. Cheryl believes that spirit days are important to building a positive school atmosphere and providing kids a chance to be proud of their school.

“Not only are spirit days fun for the kids, they also promote school pride. Every child should be proud of his or her school, and here at Langley Fine Arts, we have a lot to be proud of! Our school is very special and spirit days are simply another way of coming together to celebrate how special we are,” she said.

Twenty-five years ago, Fort Langley Junior Secondary became Langley Fine Arts School, with the first Grad class moving on in 1994. Now with seventeen successful graduating classes, the spirit carried by the first students and staff of the school have continued to this graduating class.

Twenty-five years is a long marriage between academics and the arts, and LFAS has made every year an exceptional one.
