Get to know our principal and what’s going on in our school.
April 30

I am honoured to be your principal at Western Canada High School, a school with a long and proud tradition of excellence. Intellegentia, Vires, Virtus – Knowledge, Strength, Courage. These values are what built one of the best schools in the world. It is my intent to carry on these values and traditions.

To our new Grade 10 students, I am asking you to espouse those values. Your predecessors did. They took advantage of both the curricular and extracurricular offerings of this fine institution. By doing so, they continued the proud tradition of the school to excel in academics, fine arts, and athletics.

Grade 11 students, I am asking you to embrace each day that this school has to offer. Non est ad astra mollis e terris via, There is no easy way from the earth to the stars. As you well know, you have the opportunity, the privilege to be in a unique school; time will fly so make every day count! You need to leave at the end of each day with a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction.

Grade 12 students, let’s get ready for the next chapter in your life. Exiitus acta probat. The result validates the deeds. Pay close attention to your teachers. During my career I had the chance to visit private and public schools around the world. From these travels, I can tell you that your teachers are leaders in their respective fields. They will help you get ready to face the challenges that await you as you set forth as an adult into the world.

Every student that walks through the doors of Western Canada High School will feel safe, challenged and successful. Our role as educators is to provide the security, opportunities and celebration of learning. Together we will nurture a great educational environment for all, through our commitment to the shared vision that learning is our central purpose.

I look forward with great anticipation to the 2018- 2019 school year. I invite you to help me in contributing to the great learning environment of Western Canada High School.

Martin Poirier
