Message from your Principal - December Newsletter
Posted on 12/04/2023

Greetings Ardagh Bluffs Families,

November was another busy and active month filled with various activities and much learning!  On November 10th, we commemorated Remembrance Day with student-led assemblies and learned together about our past and current realities.  November was also the month where we recognized Bullying Prevention and Intervention Week.  During this week students engaged in a school wide poster contest.  Congratulations to ??, our intermediate winner, Gavin and Sam, Sabring, our junior winner and Kelly and Tyler, our primary winners.  As a school, we continue to engage in bullying prevention and intervention on an ongoing basis through the work of our Safe and Inclusive Learning Spaces Team.

 December brings with it a multitude of winter festivities that weave together the rich tapestry of cultural traditions within our diverse school community. From Hanukkah and Christmas to Kwanzaa, this month provides an opportunity for our students to learn about and appreciate the various customs and rituals that make each winter celebration unique. Our classrooms are alive with discussions, art projects, and presentations that showcase the beauty of cultural diversity, fostering understanding and unity among our students.

 In the true spirit of giving, Ardagh Bluffs is in the midst of our 10 Days of Giving with donations going to ‘Christmas Cheer’, a winter charity drive to support those in need within our community. This initiative not only teaches our students the importance of empathy and compassion but also instills in them a sense of responsibility towards making a positive impact on the lives of others during this festive season. 

We eagerly look forward to our SNOW MUCH FUN FESTIVAL, which is being hosted by the School Council in collaboration with school staff on Wednesday, December 13th from 5:00-7:00 p.m.  This family friendly, fun event will serve as our most significant fundraiser to support extra-curricular sports, teams and clubs here at Ardagh Bluffs Public School. Thank you to all the families who have donated items to the silent auction. We hope to see you there!  

We’re looking forward to another wonderful month of learning at Ardagh Bluffs Public School!

Ms. Robinson and Mr. Kirwan
