We are pleased to share this greeting from our trustee Anna DeBartolo
Message from our Trustee
We are now at the mid-way point in the school year. I know for many, it may feel like this year has been defined by the current labour situation. Public schools across the province are experiencing new challenges, and I appreciate that this has generated stress and a degree of uncertainty in our own school community.
However, great things continue to happen in our classrooms and schools. As you have heard from Director of Education Ken Thurston, we are committed to minimizing the effects of the labour situation on our students, and we continue to focus first and foremost on student achievement and well-being.
Our students continue to learn in innovative and exciting ways, and I encourage you to talk with them about what they’re learning and how they’re learning. Through the use of technology and more inquiry-based learning, for example, students are developing their skills in critical thinking and problem solving, enhancing their digital literacy and becoming more engaged in their own learning.
With report cards coming home, this is also a good time to review your child’s progress so far, celebrate successes and set goals for the next term.
I wish you all the best for a successful second term.
