Welcome Back to School


Oki, Tunsai, Danit'ada, Taanishi, Bonjour, and Hello Hidden Valley School Families, 


Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! We are thrilled to welcome all families to HVS. This time of year brings great excitement and wonder about all this year has to offer, it also brings worry and nervousness, for the same reason! All these feelings, and many more, are all expected – even for our staff! Take a few minutes to listen to the story with your child to see what I mean, First Day Jitters by Julie Danneberg 


HVS plays an important role in our community. Schools support students in gaining essential knowledge and skills, equip them with the tools needed to understand the world around them, make informed decisions, and become well-rounded individuals. Schools helps children develop important life skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, communication, and time management. These skills contribute to their personal growth and ability to navigate various challenges throughout life. School are also hubs of community activity, welcoming families to become involved in school-related events and activities, which foster a sense of belonging and engagement within the community. As the new principal of HVS, I feel incredibly fortunate to be joining this expectational school and the community it serves.

Dear Families of Hidden Valley School,

As I say goodbye to Hidden Valley School, I would like to personally thank all of you. I am thankful to have had the opportunity to be part of this incredible school community.  At Hidden Valley School, we truly all work together to ensure each and every student experiences success. When a staff member leaves a community, we come up with three words to describe them. My three words for the Hidden Valley Community are: Supportive; Vibrant; and Family.   Thank you for all of the warmth and support you have shown me.  I will take that with me as I continue on this lifelong learning journey.  I am truly grateful. 

Wishing you all a fun, relaxing and safe summer.

Important Announcement

As a lifelong learner, I am always working on improving my practice, through professional learning and new and different experiences, so that I can do my best to help all learners succeed to their potential. I have learned to embrace change, as it is how we continue to grow. I always say, when a new door opens, walk through it, even though it may feel a little scary. Otherwise, you may never know where it could have led and may not get another opportunity. It is for these reasons that I have accepted, with mixed emotions, the position of principal at King George School, beginning in August. 

In the coming weeks, you will be sent a link to a survey where you can give some feedback that we will share with the new principal. The search for a new principal will begin next week.  

It has been an honour and my privilege to serve our whole school community for the past five year, and to have had the incredible opportunity to learn and work alongside you, serving this very special school community.  I will remember my time as Assistant Principal and Principal of Hidden Valley School fondly. 

With immense gratitude, 

Proud Principal,  

Allison Hull ​
