The last Friday of December’s school year means early alarm bells for Vancouver Technical School’s Grade 9 students who are part of the Summit program. Each year, for the past 23 years, students make and serve hot chocolate to deserving bus operators, bright and early, as they pull up to the Broadway stop outside the school.

Each year, students from the Summit program at the Vancouver Technical School brave the early morning cold to show appreciation to their bus drivers by hand-delivering sweet cups of hot chocolate and a little gift to each passing bus.
For over 20 years,
students elves at Vancouver Technical Secondary School in Vancouver have been rolling out of bed extra early on the last day of school before winter break to give back to the bus operators who have been getting them to school all year long.
Not even the Grinch could keep Vancouver Technical Secondary Students from warming the hearts, and bellies, of our bus operators on the last day of school before the holiday break!
For 20 years now, VanTech students have been braving the rain, the snow, and this year, the extreme cold to show their appreciation for our bus operators.
Students arrive at the crack of dawn outside the bus stop in front of their school to set up their beverage station.
Bus operators are greeted with a smiling face and a carol or two, a hot chocolate and a small token of students appreciation.

There may have been a chill in the air, but the enthusiastic holiday cheer was truly heartwarming.
A very special thank you to all off the Vancouver Technical Secondary students who took part and helped to make this another wonderful event and for treating our bus operators to some holiday cheer!
