General School Information
The Victoria German School is run by a voluntary Board and a School Director. The School requires the active participation of parents to operate effectively and will request involvement with various activities, events and fundraising.
Session and Class Times:
The school year runs from September to early June, with breaks for holidays and certain other dates (see calendar). The school holds most classes on Saturday mornings, 9:30 am to 12:30 pm, but also holds midweek classes on Tuesday afternoons, 4:00 to 6:15 p.m.
The school rents space from the University of Victoria for its classes. Classes are held at the Clearihue Building, which is located between the library and UVic centre on Ring Rd., UVic. Please note, due to COVID-19 restrictions, most classes have been relocated to St Patrick's Elementary School, 2368 Trent Street, near Royal Jubilee Hospital, until we may return to the University. Some adult classes are held online.
The school has a library housed in a mobile bookcase that is available during school hours. We have books for various age groups as well as DVDs & CDs.
