Farewell & Welcome for 2019-20

Welcome and Welcome Back!

We are pleased to welcome several new and returning from leave teachers for the 2019-20 school year.  

Ms. Sandra Scott will be joining Blue Pod and the Humanities department, teaching primarily grade 6 students. Ms. Harriett Siemens joins the Fine Arts department as our new band instructor and Fine Arts Learning Leader.

Returning from maternity leave is our Guidance Counselor Ms. Simran Johal. As Ms. Johal returns we are excited to welcome Ms. Paddock back into the humanities department.  Also returning from maternity leave is Mrs. Simone Heywood, who will resume her work in Food & Fashion studies.​ 


Congratulations to the following staff members who will be pursuing new opportunities at other CBE schools in the 2019-20 school year. We say farewell to teachers Mr. Bradley Brown, Mr. Adam Mailman and Ms. Maria Sarro as well as Ms. Tea Trnski our school registrar. The positive impact these staff members have had within our learning community has been immeasurable, and they will be sorely missed.


We extend our sincere thanks to Miss Stacy Kim, Mrs. Beth Novak and Mr. Paul Ingle; all whom held temporary positions this year at Tom Baines.  Miss Kim, Mrs. Novak and Mr. Ingle were very active members of our learning community and we have been very fortunate to have them share their gifts with us.


All of the above mentioned staff members have contributed amazing gifts and talents to our community and will be greatly missed. We wish them much success in their future as they all move on to new challenges and adventures. We thank you colleagues for your dedication to our students, our parents and our school community. This is farewell but not goodbye!

Welcome and Welcome Back!​
