Principal's Message

Welcome to Holyrood School!

Nestled in the Bonnie Doon area, Holyrood is a large literacy based school with a positive learning climate where Bright Futures Begin Here! Our dedicated, caring staff work together with parents and the community to offer a wide range of effective programs that enrich our students’ lives. We believe in student success!

High expectations for teaching and learning with a focus on improving literacy and numeracy across the curriculum will enrich the lives of our students. To that goal, our enthusiastic staff will strive to continually improve their professional practice through on-going development in Universal Design for Learning, Assessment best practices, 6+1 Traits© of Writing and SMART board© technology this year.

The richness of our school is also a result of high expectations for student conduct and behaviour. Every effort will be directed to encourage students to do and be their best. We will applaud their efforts and commend them for their successes – both in learning and as young people.

The quality that is exemplified in Holyrood’s teaching and learning is the result of the strong partnership between home and school. We are also grateful for the tremendous support of our parent community. Together, we will continue to provide excellence in education for our students - your children.

We look forward to you joining in our school life this year.


Mr. Les Hansen
