News & Announcements

Welcome to 2019-2020 at Central Public School.

Welcome In Multiple Languages

A warm welcome to the 2019-2020 academic year at Central Public School!  We look forward to the arrival of our students on September 3rd and the opportunity to support and nurture them on their learning journeys.

As a new member of our school community, I have been welcomed and supported by our caring and highly-skilled staff and have been impressed by their dedication, friendliness, motivation and expertise.  Central Public School provides a positive, secure environment for academic and social-emotional learning where we respect and celebrate diversity. Everyone is welcome here.

Student success is achieved when there is a strong partnership between the school and parent community.  As home and school work together we will model the collaboration, communication and citizenship we wish to foster in our children.  By maintaining open communication and mutual support we will continue to provide the best opportunity for student success.

I am committed to sustaining the positive culture of kindness that exists at Central.  I am both grateful and excited for the opportunity to work and learn together with our school community and look forward to meeting all of you in the coming months.  

Sincerely,

Donna McMillan

Principal
