Principal's reflections on the Class of 2022: There's no doubt that the last two years have been incredibly difficult for schools and those learning in them. However, I couldn't be more proud of the way our school community not only survived this time, but the manner in which our students continued to thrive. There's no doubt that the leadership from members of the Class of 2022 played a crucial role in this regard. They stayed positive, set a constructive tone, built community, and pushed on! We can truly say that we have been and will be a better school community due to their individual and collective efforts.

-- Principal Kevin Beirne
