On Thursday, June 27 we celebrated graduation with our annual cap & gown service. Congratulations graduates and on behalf of the entire staff we wish you best of luck in your future studies, travels, and adventures!
The graduation service also marked the end of the school year at Peacock Collegiate. The work of our school does not happen without the dedication of talents of our staff and volunteers. Thank you to the countless number of staff and parent volunteers who help to ensure all our students get opportunities to be deeply involved in learning and extracurricular programs at Peacock. The commitment and your dedication of your time and talent are crucial to our school.
Each year several of our teachers and staff also “graduate” and move onto new opportunities. This year we are saying goodbye to Mrs. Saylor, Mr. Porter, and Ms. Verge. All three are moving on to new opportunities, including retirement in the case for Ms. Verge. Thank you for all you have done for current and former students and staff and best of luck next year.
We also welcome four new teachers to the school next year including Mr. Brendan Fedoski who will be teaching social sciences; Ms. Sarah Clarke who will teach physical education, Mr. Cody Pylatuk who will teach welding and AutoCAD; and Mrs. Jennifer Hemstock who will teach choral and some other fine arts and electives. Welcome to the Peacock Collegiate family!
Finally, it has been a privilege and an honour to work with the students, staff, and families throughout the past school year. Our students have routinely demonstrated their commitment to high achievement in a caring environment. We wish you all a restful and safe summer. We look forward to working with returning students and wish all the best for the Class of 2019!
