Mission Statement

"The students and staff of Sir Robert Borden High School are a community of learners dedicated to creating an environment in which learning and growing for both staff and students is highly valued." 

 

Hello to SRB students and their families;

 

It is hard to believe that we are almost finished first semester. Mr. Jackson, Mr. MacQueen and I continue to be delighted to be your admin team here at SRB. We love the energy and enthusiasm of our school. The first half of the year is off to a fine start. Labour issues are behind us and classes and extra-curricular activities are well under way. We have over 15 Clubs and 27 sports teams up and running: these numbers demonstrate tremendous school spirit and a dedicated staff here at SRB working with volunteers from the community. Our students are fortunate!

When we return after the Holidays, we will host on our Grade 8 Information Evening on Thursday, January 7th starting at 6:30 PM in the auditorium. Tours of the school will follow and will include our renovated gym complete with a shiny new paint job and finish on the floor. We hope to see many interested families at this event.

Summatives begin Monday January 11 followed by exams. Students are encouraged to continue to work hard in all their classes.

We believe in a strong bond between home and school. We know that when parents are involved in school, their children do better in school. This year, our School Council is ably chaired by Paula Shaver. The Council is an effective voice of parents: it has been a strong advocate for good things at SRB. Our next meeting is Tuesday, January 12th at 7 PM in the library. Please join us.

Thank you to all students and their families for their continued support at SRB. Enjoy the holiday time as you relax with family and friends, and if you celebrate Christmas, Hanukah or Kwanza, please enjoy this special time together with loved ones.  Best Wishes for a healthy and happy 2016. 

An IMPORTANT NOTICE: Please note that the Main Office will be closed from Monday, December 21, 2015 to Friday, January 1, 2016 reopening on Monday, January 4th 2016.

 

Kind regards,

Wendy Verreault

Proud Principal @ SRB
