Administrator Weekly Update |Feb. 24, 2017

 

I am writing this message with a bit of a heavy heart.  We celebrated Flag Day on February 15, 2017 with a wonderful performance by so many of our talented students.  At the time we were celebrating, Mrs. George Stanley peacefully passed away.  The irony of the day and event was not lost on any of her family.  We were forwarded Mrs. Stanley’s obituary and we were deeply impressed by her own accomplishments and her staunch belief in women as advocates of change.  In communication with her family they expressed great relief that the bronze bust of Dr. George Stanley was received by the school and they could share in the excitement generated by this honoring piece that will remain not in Ottawa, but rather the community of Cranston.  Her funeral will be held Friday February 24, 2017 in Sackville MB. 

 

The Flag Day celebration was a great success.  I only wish Dr. and Mrs. Stanley could have experienced the sense of pride I felt towards the student body at this school.  School advisory students ran the assembly without knowledge of the passing; the audience was extremely respectful and listened intently to the dialogue.  The students sang a song Free to Be (Canada’s Song) and we heard a wonderful rendition of the poem I am Thirteen by one of our students.  I am extremely proud of the effort each and every presenter put towards this wonderful day.  The raising of our flag was momentous and very touching.  For our students one of the most exciting elements of the assembly was the announcement of the name our school teams will be known as: Dr. George Stanley 67s.
