BCPVPA and BCCHF Jean Up Campaign

During the month of May, many of us and our schools wore our jeans for a purpose – to raise awareness and fundraise for BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.

The BCPVPA staff raised a total of $325.00. We are also happy to report that schools across BC have fundraised: $120,000 (and counting); it is inspiring to see the outcome of the commitment and generosity of our members and their schools.

The History of the BCPVPA

In Their Own Words documents the early years of BC school leaders and what led to the formation of the Association told by the people who lived it. Thanks to our friends at the BCRPVPA who produced this story about the BCPVPA.
