The nights are becoming a bit cooler and the days slightly shorter which is signalling the start of school. We are in for an incredible year at Willway. Although we are still struggling with Covid infections in our province we are feeling so positive about this year and some return to “normal”.  We are looking forward to events, performances, assemblies and being a community of learners sharing experiences once more.

It is my goal to make sure all students, parents and staff feel welcomed, respected, and safe when they are at our school. We are still looking to the students, parents and staff to help us achieve this goal. We are a school that believes in supporting students to do their best, using kind and respectful words and that it is okay to make mistakes because that is how we learn and grow. We believe that important to take risks and that it is okay not to know something, but not okay to not try.

We are fortunate at Willway to have amazing grounds to play on, access to nature trails and hikes just a few minutes away that allow us to take our learning out and about into the community. We are also looking forward to the installation of our nature playground this fall.

I am personally feeling excited about working with an incredible team of educators, students and parents. We can’t wait to see the amazing things the students learn, experience and engage in. Welcome to Willway!
