The Creed

About

Welcome to The Creed, the student news organization of St. George’s School in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

All content on this website is written and produced by the students of the Journalism 11/12 class at St. George’s School.  The online edition is updated on a weekly basis.

Editorials, columns, and reviews that appear with a byline are the opinions of the writer and not necessarily those of the staff, adviser, or administration. The staff editorial reflects the majority opinion of the editorial board of The Creed and does not necessarily reflect the opinions of all students on the staff, of the teacher adviser, or of the administration.

The Creed staff moderates all comments made on this website. Comments are expected to adhere to our standards and to be respectful and constructive. As such, we do not permit the use of profanity, foul language, personal attacks, or the use of language that might be interpreted as libelous. The Creed does not allow anonymous comments, and the commentator must use a valid email address. The email address will not be displayed but will be used to confirm your comments.

The teacher adviser of The Creed is Ms. Jennifer Torry.  Please send comments or suggestions to [email protected]. Thank you!
