Principal’s Message
As the calendar turns to June, students begin to think of the end of the school year. For
graduates, they think of life after high school which includes jobs, college, university and other
opportunities. While thinking of life after the current school year is understandable, it is
important that students not think too far into the future and forget about the now. After all,
classes are still in progress and exams are around the corner. Students are encouraged to stay
focused for a few more weeks after which they’ll have two months to relax and recharge for
September.
I’d like to wish all staff and students a safe and relaxing summer. To the grads of 2012, best of
luck in the future and we will see the rest of you back in the fall.

Terry Foster,
Principal
