Principal's Message

Wow, the year keeps on flying by, we are now on the other side of spring break and looking to end of year. It has been nice to feel the sun and experience the longer days that spring offers. I am happy to see the success and positive experiences our Gator family has experienced since the start of the year in spite of Covid. Whether returning or new to the swamp, all of our students have shown their true Gator colours: passion, determination, and positivity.

Each year we like to give students from our feeder elementary schools the opportunity to visit and to hear all about everything Lorne Akins has to offer from our academics, our wide range of clubs, option classes, teams, service and leadership activities, and opportunities. This year, like last year, has been a bit more complicated is sharing what our school is all about but we have managed to find ways to share what it is to be a gator with our future alumni. I have great confidence that our students will finish off the year feeling proud of their accomplishments thanks to the support and encouragement they continue to receive from you and all the Lorne Akins staff. We will continue to find ways to navigate this pandemic journey for our families and our community to make this a strong finish to our school year.
