Congratulations to both the Junior and Intermediate Track and Field teams who participated with great sportsmanship at their respective Meets.
Junior Intramurals have now wrapped up. The Junior Golden Boot was awarded to House 6.
Our 2014-2015 school year has come to the end. We have bid adieu to our Grade 8 students who are eagerly anticipating moving to High School and we held Leaving Ceremonies for our grade 6 and 7 students, as they too are leaving W. Erskine Johnston and moving to the Earl of March for their grade 7 and 8 Intermediate years. We look forward to welcoming a new group of Junior Kindergarten students. Summer holidays are beckoning. Excitement is in the air!
At the end of this school year, we wistfully say farewell to some staff members. The following teachers will be moving to the Earl of March: M Marquis, Ms. Nielsen, Mr. Steiner, and M Richardson. Ms. Baker is moving to Katimavik Elementary School. Ms. Hearne, our Office Assistant will also be joining the team at the Earl of March.
A heartfelt thank you to teachers Ms. MacAskill, Ms. Bahm, Ms. Whittle, Ms. Breese, Ms. Norrie and Ms. Algie who have been replacing staff off this year.
On behalf of students, parents and staff, our heartfelt appreciation is extended to our School Council who has worked so hard this year on behalf of our students. Thank you, as well, to the many parents who have contributed their time to help out in a myriad of ways within the school, to fundraise, and to participate in special events for students.
