Burleigh Hill, Niagara

November 9, 2015

One of the smallest schools (with a BIG heart) that I have visited was Burleigh Hill in St Catharines today.

Smaller audience made for more interactive sessions with both groups of students.  Thanks to the parent council and their efforts to bring me in today.  I appreciate the kind gift from council, after the parent session this evening.  My kids have already read it!

My first of two stops in Hamilton today was at SJAM.

Orchard Park, Niagara

My third visit to Orchard Park in four years.  This school was booked out 14months prior to my visit today.  I am honoured to have returned to speak with your students and parents.

The Grade 7/8s were the more curious ones today, asking lots of questions.

DSBN PIC Conference, Niagara

Today I was honoured to return for my second time to the District School Board of Niagara PIC Conference.

First session was standing room only.  The parents were energetic and taking lots of notes.  Sorry we only had 50min to get in a 95min message..
