Principal's Message June 2014

We have had a number of calls at the office regarding our awards ceremony and Valedictory.  Unfortunately, with the job action currently in progress everything is very unsettled and the state of our awards ceremony is unclear.  However, it is my intention to proceed with our Valedictory ceremony at North Delta Secondary.  I will be asking for parents and former students to help so that parents of our graduates can enjoy the ceremony.

I am sad to be leaving the Sands community after seven years but am looking forward to the challenge of working in a new school setting at Delta Secondary School in Ladner.  I would like to thank all of the students, staff and parents for making my time at Sands so rewarding and enjoyable.  I am very pleased to welcome Mr. Aaron Akune to Sands as the incoming Principal!  Mr. Akune is currently a vice principal at Seaquam Secondary.

Unfortunately several of our other staff members are also leaving us.  I am very appreciative of all of the hard work and dedication of the following staff members and give them my best wishes as they move forward in their teaching careers:  Ms. Blouin, Ms. Cheng, Ms. Gaspar, Ms. Henderson, and Ms. McCutcheon, 

Congratulations to all of our graduates in the class of 2014!  Thank you for all of your efforts and involvement in making our school so great.  On behalf of the staff, I would like to extend my best wishes to all of our graduates as they move forward in their lives as alumni of Sands Secondary!  It has been a pleasure to be a part of the Sands community.  Have a safe and relaxing summer!
