DSCN9921 DSCN9917We want to send out a HUGE thank you to everyone for their support of our Spring Fair! It was a great success and well attended even with the blustery conditions.

Thank you to our PAC for their dedication, enthusiasm and contribution of many hours to put on this event. As always, this could not have happened without each of you!

Thank you to our staff for their flexibility and support of the fair. It has been a busy few weeks!

Thank you to our community for their donations of items, financial support and time. It was wonderful to see so many community members out last night.

Thank you to our parents for coming out and enjoying a night of fun helping at the fair and supporting the school with your children.

Thank you to our students for your unending laughter and enthusiasm. You make it fun!


growing upIt always seems at this time of year that children are extra hungry.  It must be growing season!  We always have extra snacks at school for students who finish their lunch and are still hungry or for students who forget their lunch.  Over the last month we have noticed a definite increase in the requests for snacks.  Please chat with your children and see if they might need something extra in their lunches.  Spring seems to have awakened a growing spurt.

Take care,



New for the 2016/17 school year
  • Register and pay online!
  • Proposed increase of $50 per rider

Macartney and Liam had the wonderful opportunity to record voiceovers for the exhibits at the Artstarts Gallery.  They were required to rehearse up to five scripts each and then spend time at a local studio working with professional recording artists.  Their work will be published on the Artstarts website within the next few weeks.  Stay tuned for their blog posting!IMG_20160509_110310
