About Us

Garibaldi Annex is a Kindergarten to Grade Four Annex fondly known as The Small School with the BIG Heart. It is located at  in a residential neighborhood in East Vancouver in a quiet pocket between Nanaimo and Renfrew streets.

School gardens and mountain views make for a wonderful setting in which to learn and grow. Approximately 20% of the students speak a language other than English at home.

Garibaldi has established a number of partnerships within the community. Frog Hollow Neighborhood House, not only has a weekly family drop-in for preschooler’s at Garibaldi, but also provides an out-of-school program where children are dropped off before school and picked up and delivered safely to Frog Hollow after school. We are also grateful for the continued support from The Vancouver Public Library and One to One Volunteers.

Parents are actively involved in the school community through participation in the PAC and a variety of committees. They hold several family events each year, actively raise funds for the school and are very involved and generous with their support of the Garden Club.  Monthly PAC meetings are well attended and new participants are always welcome.
