Principal's Message

It is a privilege to serve your community. Courcelette PS is a school rich in Canadian history that teaches us the importance of reverence for the past while instilling a sense of hope in the future. Our school’s motto is, “Think globally, act locally.” To that end we are committed to developing a deep understanding of equity and social justice, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, & Math) and the importance of well-being for every student so that they will be prepared to become future leaders.

We are committed to focusing on a “growth” mind-set that insists that all of our abilities are developed through hard work, perseverance, calculated risk-taking, patience, and a commitment to the belief that “for every problem, there is a solution.” We know that every day we are forming new neurons and pathways in our brains so that we can achieve better outcomes, better health, and achieve our goals.

We are committed to creating a school learning environment that is caring, safe, peaceful, nurturing, positive, respectful and that enables all students to reach their full potential. When a school has a positive climate, all members of the school community feel safe, included, accepted and actively promote positive behaviours and interactions with each other. As a school we are committed to inclusion, athletics, academics, arts, and the service of our community (global and local). We truly believe “there’s nothing holding us back!”

Welcome to Courcelette PS!
