Kudos for last week:


·       A big thank you to members of the Phys. Ed department who endured the chilly nights and took our students camping last week and the Drama Department’s visit to Stratford. Experiential education is definitely a valuable experience for all of the students who attended.

·       A special thanks to members of the Guidance Department and the various staff and students for all of their hard work in conducting Grade 8 visits to help promote our school. We realize that this involves many, many visits and we greatly appreciate all of your efforts in helping to spread the good word about Ward!
