July 10, 2020



Carisbrooke Elementary principal Lisa Upton was interviewed about the NVSD 44Dresses program for the Summer edition of Principl(ed) Magazine, put out by B.C. Principals’ & Vice-Principals’ Association.

Seven years ago Ms. Upton co-founded 44Dresses which has since supported more than 800 students in celebrating their transition to high school.

Student leaders in North Vancouver high schools rally to gather community donations of age-appropriate party clothes and accessories.              

Grade 7 graduates are then invited to select their outfit during a special event called Boutique Day.
