Principal's Message

The 2018-19 school year is well under way now and it is the end of the first week. We had a much smoother start-up this year not having to contend with the major renovations as we did last year. It was nice seeing our new grade 9 students at the Orientation and BBQ on Aug 29. A big thanks to our LINK students and staff for helping out. On the first day of school our LINK students and staff worked hard to welcome over 300 grade 9 students to West with orientation activities to assist with their transition to high school.  Our Link students and staff have planned several activities for the grade 9's over the semester to continue with this transition work.

For the second year now, we have used an online locker selection process.  We continue to be very satisfied with how it worked having over 1000 students manage to choose a locker in under 2 hours.

Our online payment system continues to be a popular choice for all parents making it much easier for parents to pay the voluntary student fee, purchase a yearbook, or pay sport/field trip costs.  It also allows parents to easily track all of the purchases made. This will be our primary method to collect payments from parents.  If you have not done so yet, please go to our home page and click on the School Cash Online icon to register for an account, you only need to do this once. Please contact the school if you are having difficulty using it and we can assist you,  Of course, we are still accepting payments through our main office if you like.  

On Friday September 7th we held a Welcome Back BBQ lunch for all students. It was a nice end to the first week of school.

West continues to grow, and we were able to welcome some new teachers. Brand new to West, I’d like to welcome:

Chris Butler, Lorraine Donaldson, Richard Dunn, Kristin Greatrix, Charlene Hayes, Heather Levie, Cedar Lockwood, Amanda May, Jonathan McCarthy, Myriam Montpetit, Kiely Russell, Sean Ryan, and Emma Young,
I am looking forward to another exciting year!
