Principal's Message

I am very excited to take on the role of Principal at St. Peter the Apostle - I know already that I have been blessed with a wonderful group of students, staff and community members, and am very much looking forward to the new school year.

I believe that great learning is authentic learning, and that every student can learn.To that end, I will be working closely with all staff members to create learning opportunities that are engaging, relevant and differentiated according to student needs. In order to do this, I will be providing teachers with positive support and access to professional development, and we will be reaching out to parents for support with academic and behavioural concerns. We will be asking for students to direct and take responsibility for their own learning, and to develop problem-solving skills while they are in the safe environment of elementary school.

It is important to me that we are all working together as a team for the success and well-being of the children. 

Thank you for the opportunity to serve your families in this role. To me, it is both an honour and a sacred trust. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas you would like to share.
