It's Summer! 2024 Year End Principal Letter


Dear Parents, 

The 2023-24 school year is now complete, and I wish to say a very huge thank you for your support of your children and our school. What a year! It was wonderful to join the South Nelson community this year and I felt very welcomed by students, staff and parents. Great learning happened throughout the year, relationships were deepened, and students matured. I want to express deep gratitude to our teaching team who led strong and rich academic programming to all our students throughout the year. They are amazing! 

We do, however, say goodbye to several staff members. They have been fantastic additions to our team this year, and we will miss them! We wish the very best for their next steps and hope to perhaps see them again. These include Mrs. C (retiring), Ms. Finnie, Ms. BenRabha, Mrs. Terlingen, and several EA’s Bevan, Bernice and Lindsay. Watch for information to come in the fall about our team for the 2024-25 school year. 

Final learning updates were released last week through MyEd, so please check into the parent portal to receive a copy. \For information about how to access MyEd and other support documents, please visit our website:

Looking ahead to September, school supplies will be purchased by the school for next year. Supply fees will be $40 per student, which can be paid upon our return in September (please do not pay in August). Next year’s teacher will let you know anything additional your child may need. 

Attached here is our school handbook and 2024-25 school calendar for your reference. You will be notified of your child’s class placement just before the start of the school year, so watch your email in late August. 

For now, all the very best for a restful summer! Congratulations to you all for a successful school year. Enjoy a good rest and fun times with family and friends. 

All the best, 

Mrs. Snell, Principal
