Principal's Message

​“Resilience is accepting your new reality, even if it's less good than the one you had before.”

Inarguably, we ​could say that we have a new currently reality, one that was unexpected and thrust upon us overnight.  Regardless, we have all had to adapt to new reality that the COVID-19 global pandemic has created. While we do not know what the fall will bring, we do know that we have become resilient during these times, adapting to what every new day has brought. Social distancing, hand sanitizers, masks and other protective personal equipment have become part of the norm. 

While this may have been only a part of it, the biggest change for our students and families was the cancellation of in-person classes on March 15.  Overnight, arrangements started for emergency remote online learning to happen in literacy and numeracy for elementary students.  The physical classroom was usurped by Google Classroom and Google Meets.  New social norms during online meetings such as muting microphone had to be learned by both students and adults.  Figuring out the online environment was the first priority before getting to the weekly assignments.
 
Our students embraced the new norm.  They missed their friends, classmates and teachers and were excited to see others through Google Meets.  They logged on each week to see which assignments had been posted.  When they weren’t sure, they used the growth mindset skills learned at school to say that they didn’t have a certain skill “yet” and that they could take a deep breath when frustrated.  Dalhousie students truly showed up and showed us what they can do.
 
A huge gracias goes out to all of our parents and extended families, who, in many cases, worked full-time at home, taught and took care of their children at the same time.  We know that this triple feat is not something for which you signed up.    You rose to the occasion and supported your children in their learning in a way that was new to everyone.  Kudos to you for your dedication and perseverance!
 
Our teachers and support staff also had to learn the nuances of teaching online without any advance warning.  They endeavoured to create tasks to engage students and continue their learning.  They learned alongside the students and their families, adjusting as they went along.  They displayed their own resilience as they had to teach online while learning about it at the same time.  We are proud to say that Dalhousie staff rose to the occasion on a weekly basis. 
 
We still do not know what the fall will bring.  More decisions will be made August 1. Please check the CBE and Dalhousie websites regularly for updates as well as ensuring that you have consented to receive emails from the CBE.    The school will reopen on Thursday, August 27.  We look forward to the day where we can be physically together again, safely.
 
Enjoy the summer!
