Principal's Message

Welcome to Dunlop Public School!

Dunlop PS is a K-6 school nestled in the well established community of South Keys. We are a single stream English only site with daily Core French and a bilingual Kindergarten program. We also have a Primary Language Learning Disabilities classroom and a wonderful Extended Day Program.

My most important responsibility as an educator is to ensure that students are safe physically, socially and emotionally. Every child can learn and grow when the environment is engaging and conducive to learning. Every educator in the building is dedicated to encouraging, challenging and growing each and every student to become the best they can be. While learning may be hard for some or take longer for others, our goal is to always be moving student learning forward.

Student well-being and academic achievement are at the root of our mission here. We continue to use the resource, The Third Path: A Relationship-Based Approach to Student Well-Being and Achievement, by Dr. David Tranter. This resource helps refine our practices in order to ensure all students feel safe, welcome and included. To improve achievement in the area of literacy, teachers will be using a variety of screening tools in order to target instruction and support literacy development.

When parents and the school community work in partnership, great things can be accomplished. School Councils work together with the school’s staff and community partners to strengthen and support the learning in our building. School Council begins meeting monthly at the start of every school year and all are welcome. I look forward to building strong partnerships with you to support our learners.

I have been enjoying getting to know the students and look forward to getting to know you too!
