A Message from the Principal

Dear Students and Parents/Guardians,

At Elizabeth Ballantyne, we promote the academic, physical, and emotional growth of our students while constantly working at creating a positive learning environment for them with an emphasis on educational curiosity and life-balance.

Teachers and support staff members help students to succeed in their academic careers and to demonstrate their growth in the following traits: empathy, trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship. EBS strives to be a place where students can feel safe and they can experiment and makes mistakes without being judged – this allows for learning.

The agenda is a vital communication tool between school and home. Children will record homework and upcoming events in this book, and teachers may send notes to you regarding other matters. Parents/guardians are expected to sign the agenda each day. This confirms that all messages are received and homework is complete.

Success for students is always enhanced through parental involvement in school life and regular communication between the home and school.

I wish you success for the 2017-2018 school year.


Sapere Aude - Dare to Know
