Principal's Message

Welcome!

Bonjour, my name is Sandy Bonbled and I am your principal at Ecole Dufferin.

We are pleased to have our website which we hope will become a source of information to our parents. Please feel free to e-mail any feedback and suggestions to help us improve our communication.

I believe in an inclusive culture. This includes differentiated instruction to meet different learning styles. I believe in "Instruction that is good for all, but a necessity for some." I also believe that "Fair is not Always Equal." Our goal is to ensure safety of all, respect, and responsible citizenship.

Please visit the following website to view the video, "Raising Small Souls - Animal School," illustrating my philosophy: http://www.raisingsmallsouls.com


Below, please find our school student handbook. It is meant to keep you informed of our school procedures as well as important dates this year.
