Principal's Message

June 2019

​It’s hard to believe that another school year has come and gone. We’ve had a great year with many things to be thankful for. Many highlights throughout the year that include our band concerts, winter movie night, sporting events and Lunar New Year Celebration to name a few. The one that stands out the most was celebrating National Indigenous Peoples Day this year as a whole school community. We’d like to give special thanks to Sheena Breaker, Malcolm Cow, Ralph Weasel Fat and Becky Matiowsky for providing us guidance and support in making the day so successful. The day wouldn’t have been possible without their knowledge and guidance. 
I would like to thank parents, our educational partners, for all of their support. Parental support has in various ways contributed significantly towards making this year a successful one for students at Colonel Irvine School. Gratitude is extended to all parents and community members that volunteered their time and effort in support of students at school functions this year. Without your support, many of the special events would not be possible. Thank you to those volunteers who joined us for an appreciation lunch, realizing that was only a small fraction of our volunteers. We value and appreciate all of our volunteer’s time and commitment to our schools learning community.
Special thanks to members of this year’s School Council: Windchill Ha (Chairperson), Karen Charlton (Vice-Chair), Jenny Woo,  (Treasurer), Megan Limbird (Secretary), Annette Lovan (Sign-up Volunteer Coordinator), and Sarah Wong (Casino and Social Media Coordinator) Wendy Farrance (Band Liaison), Heather McRae (Key Communicator), Nora Low (Special Events Coordinator), Nathalie Callede (Fundraising Coordinator), Mearah Tong and Diane Myers (Auditors), Julie Wu and Tim Suddaby (Directors)  for their contributions. Your work has been invaluable to our school learning community. 
We will be having our first council meeting September 10, 2019 @ 6:30. School council will be holding an election at that time. Regardless of whether or not you aspire to one of these positions, your attendance and support in school matters would be greatly appreciated. Please join us!!
Staffing Updates
Dr. Ma has taught with the CBE for over 25 years, and has been a strong supporter and advocate of the Mandarin Program.  As one of the founding teachers of the Mandarin Program, Dr. Ma has decided to retire. He has reached this very important milestone, and will be embarking onto a new chapter in his life.  He has taught many students over the years and will be greatly missed by both students and staff. Thank you to his many years of service to the CBE and in particular the Mandarin Program. We wish him the very best and his Colonel Irvine family will miss him and his dumplings.
Ms. Ramona Cook has accepted a new position as an Indigenous Education Learning Leader for the next school year. We like to thank Ms. Cook for her service to Colonel Irvine School. Students, parents and staff will miss her and we wish her well with her future endeavors. 
We’d like to welcome Ms. Sarah Hills and Mr. Scott Claiter to Colonel Irvine School. They both come to us with a variety of experience and we are excited for them to join our family at Colonel Irvine School.  We will be finalizing staffing details in late August and early September. 
As the 2018-19 school year draws to close, I like to say a special farewell to all students, parents and staff. Changes are never easy but I hope that everyone will see opportunities within change. Whether you will be entering high school, going to another school or staying at Colonel Irvine, I hope that all of you will have a successful transition. 
Best wishes to all families for a great finish to the school year.
