Principal's Message

Welcome to Killam Public School! 

At KPS, we believe that the initial steps in education begin here. These steps are supported carefully by providing a welcoming and inclusive environment which enables students to develop a love of learning, both now and in the future.  The love of learning is contagious. We believe that creating engaging opportunities for learning is a large part of our responsibility as educators. Our staff strives to work as an enthusiastic, energetic and dedicated team to make learning enduring, meaningful and fun.

While we value academic excellence, we are also committed to fostering balance in the lives of our students. We hope that our students will encounter many new learning opportunities that challenge them to be engaged, critical and creative thinkers, thorough problem solvers, effective communicators and caring citizens who value themselves and others.  While academics are important, students at KPS are encouraged to participate in a variety of extracurricular activities that foster personal growth and development.

Education is a partnership between the school and the home, and we strive to maintain close contact with families.  We encourage home and school communication, as this promotes awareness about the school's academic programs, student progress, and allows parents and children to share in daily activities.  I look forward to working with parents throughout this school year. I encourage you to see yourselves as active partners in our learning community.

By working together as partners, we can ensure success for every student, everyday. Best wishes for a year filled with new goals, challenges and personal and academic growth. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me.
