As you may have heard on the news this morning, the Public School Branch met last night and discussed School changes that may happen island wide.  Looking at enrollment data and capacity within schools 6 families of schools were identified as requiring a more in-depth study to determine if changes need to happen within schools.  These changes include re-zoning, reconfiguring schools or closing schools within the Kinkora family of schools.  As of this morning, all I know is that there will be a more in-depth study and that there will be public consultations that will give you, the students and staff, a voice about what happens to the schools in this family of schools.  I will do my best to answer your questions and provide you all with information, but I ask that you maintain your focus on your education and not worry about things beyond our control at this point.  Please feel free to chat with me if you have questions or concerns.

There will be a student council meeting next Wednesday, October 5th for the executive and the grade reps at 11:25 in room 213. Please bring your lunch.
