Dear Parents and Students of Canadian Bilingual School,
Assalamu Alikum, it’s with great pleasure that I welcome all new and returning students and families to the academic year 2020-2021 at CBS.
First and foremost, I hope that all of you are safe, healthy, had a good summer, and are ready to return to school. My colleagues and I have eagerly awaited our return to school, whether we journey together via Face to Face or Distance Learning.
As you know due to COVID19 pandemic, MOE decided that all schools will start the year online and that decision will be reviewed in November. In case it is deemed safe for students to be on campus, we assure you that CBS is taking all the necessary measures to make sure our students, staff and visitors are safe, and learning is optimal.
Additionally, I would like to thank you all, our parents and students, for your partnership throughout last year. Your collaborative efforts, feedback, patience, and understanding have helped us to continuously keep our children’s learning at the center of all we do. Our progress and success have been evidenced in our students’ performance during the second semester online program and showed in our improved student outcomes. May we continue to go from strength to strength in our school improvement journey.
I’d like also to congratulate class of 2020 on their graduation and wish them the best in their universities. We’ll always be proud of our graduates and will forever be in touch with them through CBS Alumni Club.
Here at CBS we pride ourselves on the excellent curriculum which was revised and updated. We added more components to enrich the content and improve outcomes. Our program is delivered by well qualified native English-speaking teachers. Our staff members have received an intensive professional development program that allowed them to ace the online teaching techniques.
This year CBS is undergoing the reaccreditation from MSA (Middle Schools Association), the prestigious American accreditation body.
On behalf of the school administration, teachers, and staff of CBS, we thank you in advance for your cooperation and continued support! I am much looking forward to working with you all again for another successful year at CBS.
Kind regards and stay safe,
Ms Gihan Hassan
Secondary School Principal
