Principal's Message

Happy Friday!

I would like to congratulate the following staff on being offered a teaching position at the new school, Jean Augustine, for September 2016. Joining Tyler Robinson will be Tina Sidhu, Pauline Potyrala, Ruth Skiba-Otway and Danielle Brignull-Tabone. I know how exciting it is to open a new school – enjoy. I said my goodbyes this week to our LTO’s but I forgot to wish Liz Ryu best wishes on her semester two off. Enjoy Liz.

Congratulations to Christina Gusita on the birth of her son born this week. Welcome Anthony Ricardo Faria.

One of our students, Nitya Bhatt submitted an answer and a question for a contest that ‘The Famous People's Players Theater’ was hosting, and he won the opportunity to pose his answer. The event was created to celebrate the 100th birthday of the founder, Diane Dupuy's mother. Nitya's answer was : Diane Dupuy was honored this on December 20, 1982 for her dedication and outstanding achievement towards theater arts in Canada.
The question: What is the Order of Canada?

The winner, 8 fellow students and his teacher were invited to a lunch where students had an opportunity to meet Alex Trebek and the mayor of Toronto, John Tory. After lunch, students saw a Famous People's Players production. Congratulations Allyson Henley on a successful field trip.
