untitledAs a result of School District re-assignments of Principals and Vice-Principals, Mr. Murphy, our Vice-Principal for the past three years will be moving to John Muir Elementary in Sooke.  Mr. Murphy’s contributions have been many, and we will miss him, but wish him all the best as he embarks on his new assignment in September, 2017.

Mrs. Sagodi, a teacher in the Vice-Principal pool, will be Wishart’s New Vice Principal.  She is very excited about joining our great school.

untitledWe have switched our lunch routine, where students play first and eat their lunch after. Students continue to have the same amount of playtime, and to eat their lunch.  As communicated earlier there are lots of benefits of playing first, and we will try this out until the end of June.

Parents volunteering for field trips or classroom work require a Criminal Record Check when working with our students. This needs to be completed and on file at the school office prior to volunteering.

Driving any students in a private vehicle also requires a completed Criminal Records Check as well as a driver’s abstract from ICBC and  a copy of your valid driver’s license and insurance.  These are now required for all volunteers when driving for field trips. Please see the links with information below. Thank you again for volunteering your time so our children can have the best educational opportunities.
