Lip dub helps Vernon Secondary transition

Students and staff at Vernon Secondary participate and create lip dub to help say goodbye to old VSS and hello to the new school.

Students and staff from Vernon Secondary School recently completed the first half of a two-part project that will help transition from the existing school to the new facility that opens in January.

Students and staff took part in a lip-dub, an Internet video trend, that will help say goodbye to the current school, and hello to the new building that opens on the current VSS site in January.

The first half of the lip dub toured the old VSS, which opened in 1968 as Vernon Senior Secondary, housing Grade 11 and 12 students until 1984, when the school was expanded to include Grades 8 to 12, and the school became known as Vernon Secondary.

The second half of the lip dub will be shot in the new VSS, which is slated to open Jan. 7.
