On behalf of the staff here at Duffin's Bay PS, allow me to extend warm greetings and a heartfelt "Welcome" to the 2017-18 school year.
Our staff have been energetically launching the school year with our 247 students this week. Careful attention is being paid to developing routines and structures in our classrooms, hallways and school yard that promote and support a safe, inclusive learning environment so that our students can reach their fullest potential in their achievement.
Our team here is committed to excellence in five core areas: Literacy, Numeracy, Well-Being, Equity and Inclusion and Leveraging Digital. Together, with the partnership and support of our Duffin's Bay community, we will engage, inspire and support each student in their learning journey this year.
I would like to invite you to join us at the school on Thursday, September 14 from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm for our Annual Curriculum Night. Our classrooms will be open for families to visit and to chat with our staff about our goals for the upcoming year. Our SCC has offered to sell pizza slices on a first come, first served basis during the evening – no pre-orders are necessary, but when supplies are gone they are gone.
Yours in learning and leadership,
Sean Powers, Principal
