Aberdeen Hall has a strong relationship with our parents and partners, and we provide an excellent educational experience for their children. We have built the school around the following core principles:
Our specialized teachers are passionate about education and our students. We offer a unique global curriculum that includes daily core instruction, starting in Kindergarten, with classes in French, music and physical education. Our goal is to guide our students to focus on, and master, the core skills of reading, writing and arithmetic along with developing a true appreciation of the arts, health and character education.
We take pride in a community setting where we recognize and meet our students' individual needs with small class sizes and personal attention. Every student is respected and valued at Aberdeen Hall.
We encourage you to visit our campus, walk the halls, and meet our students and staff. We look forward to meeting you!
There is nothing more compelling than an excellent public speech. Over the course of the last two weeks, every student from Kindergarten to Grade 12 has prepared and presented a public speech, and I have had the distinct pleasure of observing many of them. Speaking in front of a crowd is not easy, and is listed as one of the greatest stressors for a significant percentage of the population. However, we know one thing to be true: the more you practice, the better you get. As is the case with any skill set, the keys to improvement are repetition and coaching.
When asked to explain what I do for a living, I often reply: "I safeguard students." It is the first thought that runs through my mind on my way to work, and it is the last thought I have on the way home. When we have sports teams traveling on the Coquihalla in the heart of winter, I toss and turn at night while thinking about their wellbeing. I think that Mr. Ozechowsky and Mr. Gareau share the same ongoing sense of responsibility, as they are often the designated Trip Safety Officers, charged with making some very important decisions. As faculty and staff, safety is instilled in our culture; it is what we do.
