Greetings students, staff, and parents of our CBS community
A warm welcome to students, staff and parents of the CBS community to the new academic year. 2023-24 is the first year in about 3 years where we have the feeling of a pandemic free school environment..
We start off with some welcome additions to the school look-n-feel and infrastructure- a new shaded play area for the early years students with shaded walkways and recess areas for high school besides a modern foyer to welcome all stakeholders to the Canadian Bilingual School.
We also have the privilege of having Mr. Edmund Nonis join us as the new Elementary School Principal of CBS. He comes with a lot of leadership and teaching experience combined with strong pedagogy which will greatly enhance the improvement goals of the school. We also welcome on board, the new Elementary School Vice Principal Ms. Marwa Ideak and the new High School Vice Principal Mr. Khalid Odeh. This year we also have the good fortune of having a strong cohort of teachers who come with enthusiasm, strong instructional practices and a passion for teaching and learning.
We will continue with the goals to improve learning, providing an array of extracurricular activities and developing student leadership. Additionally, we plan to improve the implementation of learning with more technology in all classrooms; students will bring their own devices to school. Teachers will be using a variety of online resources to improve the learning experience. In primary and elementary, students will hone their reading skills using Early Bird and Literacy Pro. Therefore, parents kindly make sure that your children carry their devices( laptops or iPads) to school everyday for learning.
Wishing everybody a wonderful year of learning and personal development. In the words of Benjamin Franklin we are committed to making sure that our ‘investment in knowledge pays the best interest’.
Mr. K.O Mathew
