Year-end message from the Superintendent

The last day of school is here and for some it means the closing of one door and the opening of another. 
Our graduates will be starting a new chapter in their lives. Kindergarten to Grade 11 students will be moving forward in their education. Staff will be taking the time this summer to rest and recharge. Other staff members will be opening the door to retirement! Whatever door is opening for you next, "Go with all your heart!

David Garbutt, Superintendent of Schools
