Greetings to the students, staff and parents of the CBS community.
We are in the 10th year since the Canadian Bilingual School first opened its doors. I take this opportunity to thank the members of the Board of Directors for their ongoing support, the students and parents of CBS who have been with us through the years and all the staff of CBS who have been committed to the cause of education and walked this journey with us over the last nine years.
Reviewing the last few years:
We have grown steadily in student numbers, constantly keeping our eyes on the school vision, where we have high expectations for success in every area of the school: improving instructional practices and student achievement, optimizing school operations, communicating effectively with all stake holders and working mindfully to provide a safe and supportive environment to the CBS community.
Ongoing goals for growth in learning depend largely on continuous improvement of instructional practices. To this end, we have strong academic administrators and educational specialities who support teachers through review cycles, utilizing data and targeted support for various learning levels. Our staff are well qualified and come in with skills which are further enhanced with regular in-servicing and classroom support.
With higher education being highly competitive, students are encouraged to develop proper work habits and maintain a steady focus on learning. While the teachers spend time in school, teaching the children under their care, each child's learning will only be further enriched if there is parental support with learning at home. Please take time to talk to your child's classroom/ subject teacher to understand how best you can support your child at home. Do refer to suggestions on the website educational links which your son or daughter can login to for additional support.
Wishing everyone an enjoyable and successful year of learning and growth at CBS.
