Be better

ManUp! is a group of student leaders who are working towards social change in regards to the treatment of women in our community.
Their motto: We are not asking anyone to be perfect, but expecting everyone to be better.

To hear the boys involved explain their initiative, check out their video here.

Parent-Teacher Interviews

Thursday, October 23rd

Parent Teacher Interviews for Secondary Students will be held Thursday, October 23rd and run from 4:00- 8:00 pm

Interviews are 10 minutes in length and take place on a signup basis.

Teachers have limited spaces, so if you would like an interview with any teacher, ask your son or daughter to book a time early this week.

It is not uncommon for teachers to accomodate drop-ins, but to secure a spot it is best to book a time.
