Good afternoon, Colonel Irvine School Community,
We'd like to thank parents and guardians who were able to meet with teachers this week. If you were unable to book interviews, we encourage you to contact our teachers if you have any questions or concerns about your child's learning.
At our next school council meeting we will be looking at our School Development Plan and looking into next year. We will be sending out a survey next week to gather thoughts and information. We encourage all parents/guardians to complete the survey to share and voice your thoughts regarding next school year.
Thank you to all parents for returning their intent for next year's school survey. This is important as we are starting to plan for next year. Our projection for next year is 759 students.
Congratulations to our badminton teams. They had a smashing season with all our teams capturing the divisional banner! Congratulations to all our athletes and coaches. Thank you to the following staff members for helping with our badminton season: Ms. Yeo, Ms. Vo, Ms. Melanie Lee, Ms. Lacuata, Mr. N. Chan, Mr. Jeffrey, Mr. Bong and Mr. Luu. Also, to our student volunteers who came out to help with our tournament.
Thank you as always for your support.
Ms. Ko and Ms. Dalwood

We encourage the Grade 9's to dress up fancy! It's their chance to take a nice image to commemorate their time at Colonel Irvine. Lifetouch will produce a class composite from all images taken and students have the opportunity to purchase those 11x14 composites w/folder for $21.00. It's a great keepsake!
Composite orders are due back on photo day. Students can hand them in to the photographer directly.
