Ms. Gaudet, Grade 7 Teacher

If you walked around the school at this very moment, you’d see: grade 5 students heading to an overnight trip to Norval Outdoor Education Centre, the grade 1 coffee house presentation, SK students playing on the outdoor playground, parents and students buying books at the book fair, and grade 7 students participating in their annual robotics competition. Our school is so cool.
