May 2017

We are definitely in the ‘crunch time’ of the school year as the Month of May is here.  Students will be working hard on assessments and finishing up projects this month and next.  We begin the month with a 3 day school week, Monday the 1st being Labour Day and Wednesday the 3rd Buddha’s Birthday.  At the end of this week we will have our Talent Show from 3:30 pm to 4:30 pm.  Elementary students, make sure to get signed up to attend this great event. 

On the 18th of May we have our Grade 1 information Session for PG1A Parents.  This will start at 3:30 pm and will give families a look at what to expect for their child as they graduate to the Primary Division of DSC.  The 26th marks the end of our Term 2 Extracurricular activities.  The change to a Term schedule from a Week schedule was very positive this year!  The month will end with the 30th being a holiday celebrating the Tuen Ng Festival.  Go watch some exciting dragon boat races!  Have a great May!

I graduated from Dalhousie University with a B.Sc. in Agriculture (Hons).  After five years working in the golf course management field, I attended The University of Maine and completed my Bachelor of Education in anticipation of looking to work overseas.  In 2003 I started working at Delia School of Canada.  I have been a homeroom teacher in grades 3, 5 and 6 before becoming Head Teacher in 2014.  Currently I am a candidate in the MBA Education (International) programme at Keele University.
