Holiday Message

Dear Westgate Families, 

We have all enjoyed a very festive week here at Westgate School, it was amazing to see so many students taking part in our spirit days! The effort by all classes in our door decorating contest was very competitive and the results were outstanding. Please see photos of the winning doors below.  Students also participated in writing a story about “Chomp”, our alligator, during the holidays. You will find below the complete version of the entertaining story.  

I have sincerely enjoyed the first four months here at Westgate School. I continue to feel fortunate to be working with a very dynamic, creative and friendly staff as well as respectful and kind students. As our teachers work through the continuing difficult circumstances of the pandemic, I would like to acknowledge their astounding commitment to professional growth and learning as well as the personal well-being and academic success of our students. We are all looking forward to the winter break and to returning in the new year feeling recharged.  

Special thanks to the Westgate School Council for their support and generosity toward our staff as well as families in need here at Westgate School and our sister school, Catherine Nichols Gunn.  

A reminder that Friday, December 17, 2021 is the last day of school before Winter Break. Students will be dismissed at noon. Classes resume at Westgate School on Tuesday, January 4, 2022. Please call the attendance line if your child will be absent outside of these dates. Voicemail is available 24 hours a day.  

I know many families have questions related to travel and COVID-19 guidelines, please refer to Chris Usih’s email sent to families.  

In the CBE we have an Indigenous Education team who prepares seasonal newsletters, please find this season’s edition linked here 

I wish you all an enjoyable and restful holiday season. See you in the New Year! 

Sincere regards, 

Julie Muhlberger 

Principal Westgate School
