I am pleased to welcome all of our students back as we embark on another exciting year-long journey of learning and achievement.
I trust everyone has had a wonderful summer break with lots of rest and opportunities to enjoy numerous activities with friends and family.
While we were having a well-deserved rest, many people have been very busy preparing the schools and improving the system for the new school year ahead. Our sincerest thanks to them for the work they have done to set the stage for an excellent year for students and staff.
Today, some of you will see your children enter school for the very first time and it will be the beginning of their educational journey.
Other students will return confident and ready to learn and meet their friends again.
And, some children might be reluctant, hesitant, and not too sure of what this year will bring.
Each child comes to us with a unique story and circumstance and it is our job to help them achieve success and feel a strong sense of belonging in our school system.
Avon Maitland looks forward to educating and supporting your children and we appreciate that you are entrusting them in our care. This is a privilege we accept with great responsibility.
On behalf of the Senior Team, I wish parents, students and staff a very successful year as we continue to move forward in life and learning together.
Dr. Lisa Walsh
Director of Education
