Congratulations to Joyce Chen '21, Asha Mior '20, and Jeanna Pillainayagam '19, who competed against an unprecedented number of students from across BC at this year's Barry Sullivan Law Cup. All three made the finals!
Last night the Lower Mainland Independent Secondary Schools Athletic Association League (LMISSAA) had an all-star game for both Junior and Varsity teams. In the varsity game, it was an opportunity to play one more high school basketball game and be to recognize for their stellar play throughout the season. The teams split into east and west, with LFA well-represented in the east by Ashely Velasco ’19, Alexis Fong ’19, Ceili McCabe ’19, Kayla Canama”19 and Maya Landero-Van ’20.
We are super excited about the upcoming Viva Las Vegas evening, hosted by the Parents' Auxiliary. Did you know that more than half the tickets have already sold? Did you know that nearly two-thirds of the school staff are already signed up to join us? This event is a truly enjoyable, down-to-earth community event that supports the school. We want you to join us on Saturday, April 13th!
Each year, UBC hosts a special STEM competition for high schools in British Columbia. Known as the Physics Olympics, the competition celebrated 41 years this past weekend. Through an incredible effort and some very engaged, committed and clever girls, LFA finished second in a field of more than 70 teams that took part.
LFA’s Debate Team recently competed in the Lower Mainland West Regional Tournament at Crofton House School, where several Angels were recognized for their accomplishments over the course of the competition.

Despite finishing sixth at the Lower Mainland Championships tournament, LFA played some of their best basketball of the season. Their games were so close, and, with five games in six days (including two elimination games), the undersized Angels side had to play with a short bench. They lost by just 5 and 3 points to the eventual third and fourth place teams. Finishing sixth, our Angels found themselves in a wild-card game against St. Michaels University School (SMUS) Jags, who were Victoria’s back-to-back city champions and ranked first in Island Provincial qualifying seeding.
On Thursday, November 15, we arrived in New Jersey for the opening ceremonies of the Princeton Model United Nations Conference. PMUNC hosted over 1,000 delegates from all over the world at the Hilton East Brunswick, which was a quick drive from the picturesque campus of Princeton University.
Two Angels have just received news that their auditions to take part in the prestigious A Cappella Academy were successful. Congratulations to sisters Maisey Perelonia ’20 and Sophie Perelonia ’20, who will travel to Mount St. Mary’s University in Los Angeles this summer to take part in the intensive 10-day program.
Hundreds from our wide community of LFA alumnae, students, parents, faculty and friends came together for the most delightful evening to watch Finding Big Country. The immensely popular documentary by alumna Kat Jayme '06 was screened at LFA, in the same gym where Kat played her high school basketball.
After a disappointing loss to STM 74-48, the Angels rebounded with in the league finale with an 88-36 win over Crofton. The Angels led the league in points scored, finished second in standings, and will host their playoff game next Wednesday night. This was also the night when the graduating players were honored during a half time ceremony from their teammates and supporters.
Our Senior Basketball Angels settle for silver after a wonderful performance at this year’s BC Catholics. Great basketball and a huge upset to topple third-ranked STM in the semi finals made for a fantastic tournament. First-ranked STA were full value in claiming the championship
Our Senior Basketballl Angels continue to impress this year with a superb effort to claim their place in this year's BC Catholics Championship game. The unheralded Angels played the STM Knights, who are currently ranked provincially #3 in AA Basketball. It was the Angels most challenging test of the season, playing against a STM team comprising of almost all club players. For most of LFA’s players, while they're great athletes, basketball is not their primary sport.
Though the girls will be disappointed their first game loss took them out of medal contention, they rebounded with a win yesterday against a scrappy West Van team another win against the Carson Graham Eagles. Angels were keen to determine their 4th place finish.
Come check out our Angels Talent Show this Wednesday, January 9th at 6pm in the LFA Auditorium. Angels Got Talent is hosted by the Grade 12 leaders for the Sound Crew and Music Appreciation Clubs. They have worked hard to plan this event and the students love to see a big audience for this evnet, which only happens every few years.
You may remember us celebrating one of our alumna who had huge success at this year's Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF). Director Kat Jayme '06 had her film Finding Big Country chosen as the "Super Channel People’s Choice Award" at VIFF. All the shows were sold out, so they added an additional show. It sold out. If you missed it (or you just need to see it again), you're in luck! We're bringing in a big screen to show it at LFA and you're invited! Thursday, January 31 at 7pm in the LFA Auditorium.
The Burnaby North Basketball Tournament landed two AA teams in the gold medal game. Britannia, currently ranked 5th in the province, up against our LFA Angels who sit outside out the top 10. While LFA settled for silver, it was a fantastic game to finish off a brilliant tournament for the Angels.
On Friday, January 11th, we’ll be hosting our annual LFA Student Art Show, featuring the work of our talented artists in Grade 8 through 12. It will take place at the school from 6-8pm, and will showcase a wide variety of imaginative artwork, ranging from canvas paintings, jewelry, ceramics, recycled sculptures and much more. All are welcome!
Congratulations to LFA’s public speaking team who truly shone last weekend at BC’s Provincial Speech Championships. Each and every member of the team excelled.
