Welcome to Burkevale,
Burkevale Protestant Separate School is a unique and dynamic learning environment, with a historic involvement in the Town of Penetanguishene, on the shore of Georgian Bay, that dates back to the 19th century.
"Think about the things that are good and worthy of praise. Think about the things that are true and honorable and right and pure and beautiful and respected" Phillipians 4:8 (ICB)
Our final month of the school year is upon us, and I can’t help but reflect upon our 2014-2015 school year. Who could forget our students many accomplishments? Their modeling and demonstration of astounding character traits witnessed by staff and community members, the academic and extracurricular celebrations (the Music Festival, sports’ teams, speeches, art fair and school council etc.), and last but not least, their grit and determination to persevere in the face of obstacles and challenges. I believe it is this “grit” that will be paramount to their success in the future.
Our school community has been a critical part of supporting students’ growth and accomplishments. Thank you parents, community partners, volunteers, and board members for helping to support and nurture students’ progress, critical thinking and creativity throughout the year! We are truly blessed at Burkevale to have such a wonderful staff as well. Without their dedication to their profession and to children, Burkevale would not be the same.
Finally, I would like to thank everyone for their patience and support during my first year as
principal. Your kindness, support and respect made my journey a pleasurable one. Have a wonderful up and coming vacation with family and friends. I look forward to seeing you all again in the 2015-2016 school year.
