Our Mission

Our mission describes our school's purpose. Our vision depicts our desired future. The principles needed to achieve our mission and vision are articulated in our values. Finally, the actions we need to demonstrate to make our mission, vision and values a reality are described in our collective commitments.

We have developed these statements in collaboration with our staff, students and families. They are part of our School Success Plan.


Theory of Action: If we provide teachers with resources, targeted professional learning, opportunities for reflection, and descriptive feedback, then teachers will feel supported to take risks to empower modern learners through their instructional and assessment practices. If we target understanding Stress Behaviour vs. Misbehaviour, teachers will be able build strategies to support students in Self-Regulation. We will be using Dr. Shanker Calm Alert and Learning as well as the Empowering Modern Learners Document.


We share a common vision of a school that will be an inclusive and caring community of staff, students and parents fostering the intellectual, social, emotional and physical development of each child.


  • Caring, Honesty, being Encouraging and Inclusive, Sharing,
  • Teamwork and Cooperation, Enthusiasm, Respect & Responsibility
  • These values embrace our philosophy which emphasizes social justice and global citizenship.
  • Our school mascot, CHESTER the Cheetah, helps us encourage and promote these values.
