​​​​​We are delighted to be part of this amazing school community and hope to paint you a picture of what makes Hugh Cairns V.C. School a premier choice of elementary schools. Really, it all comes down to the people and their daily engagement in learning. 

Vignettes playing out on any given day may include:
  • Our administrative assistant listening as young readers and writers proudly share their creations
  • Parents working with students in developing the school's landscape plans, maintaining the outdoor classroom and coaching teams
  • Teachers meeting with students beyond class time for jazz, swing and math club, choir, track, basketball and volleyball practice
  • Teachers working with student class representatives to develop the student handbook, and plan spirit days and school wide events
  • Teachers planning initiatives based on learning assessments and student surveys
  • Student-led conferences with parents and teachers to review progress reports and set goals for the next term
  • Care partners on field trips with preschool​ and kindergarten​ students or helping our youngest students in the lunchroom
  • Members of our School Community Council and Parent Council planning pancake breakfasts, book swaps, parent information evenings, family dances and so much more.
Happy children, vibrant community, soaring ever higher!
