Principal's Message

Happy Holidays

We have reached the last day of school before the winter break, ending a very busy season. These four months have included all the usual markers in the school calendar – such as Learning Conferences and the commencement of high school transition planning for Grade 9 students.
I have made a few observations though, of something special and different in the school life of our students. These are not easily measurable observations but are palpable, nonetheless. Our students, through the ingenious plans designed by their teachers, have been more joyous in their experience with school. Collaboration in small groups for the “So You Think You Can Dance, Woodman!” Physical Education theme has resulted in very high levels of positive participation. Various community-minded initiatives to raise funds for the Calgary Interfaith Food Bank (such as SantaGram sales and the Student Holiday Craft Market) have exceeded expectations. The school-wide Snowflake Dance was a wild sight to behold – with hundreds of dancing, laughing adolescents in the main gym.
I observe that students are well inclined to enjoy and celebrate life in school. This is vital for their mental health and well-being, and it strengthens the protective factors needed to withstand the normal pressures of growing up. Many Woodman students this year are new to Canada. They are experiencing the seasons, school traditions, and celebrations for the first time. Their cultural adaptation is significant, many having left loved ones in their home countries. School becomes a needed place of security and stability for these students, and for everyone.
A healthy school culture is the cradle of a healthy society. Is this not the best, most noble endeavour? My gratitude to our students and all those who support them in building beautiful experiences at school is enormous.
With wishes for a happy holiday,
Ms. Krickhan, Principal
