Principal’s message

Welcome to Sir Samuel Steele!

It is my pleasure to welcome everyone to a new and exciting school year. Our staff values the Sir Samuel Steele community and we are committed to providing a sound, creative and innovated learning experience. It is our goal to engage students and parents in a life-long love of learning, and provide growth through athletics, music, community service and exposure to cultural experiences.

I hope parents and guardians will consider attending a School Community Council (SCC) meeting or becoming involved as a volunteer in our school. We value your support, and hope you will enjoy being a big part of the Sir Samuel Steele community. Our parents and guardians help out in many ways including reading to your child at home, finding mathematics around your home and discussing it, working with small groups of students at school, running special activities, working as a Lunchroom Supervisor, driving our kids to events and communicating with our staff. We also hope you will come and cheer us on during special events and assemblies. You can keep track of us through the Remind app, Twitter, our website or through the website calendars. We love the support we get from our families.

I look forward to a wonderful school year at Sir Samuel Steele PS!
