Principal / Vice Principal’s Message

It was wonderful to gather as a school community to celebrate and enjoy our Spring Concert: Sing Canada’s History!  We are very proud of our talented student singers, dancers, narrators, artists, stage hands, actors, tech crew, greeter and more.  Thanks to all of our staff, the concert committee and especially Ms. Harris for supporting our students and instilling a love of music.

All proceeds from the sale of concert tickets will go towards purchasing musical instruments for our school.
