Principal's Message
Hello and welcome to a virtual tour of Toniata Public School.   

My name is Rich Tamblyn and I am very proud to be the principal of Toniata Public School.  Our school has a proud history of excellence in teaching and learning, musicals, athletics and community involvement.  We are a safe and inclusive school with approximately 220 students and 22 staff members.  We are the, "Home of the Tigers!" 

Public education holds a very important value in society.  I believe in inspiring people to be a part of something bigger than themselves.  I believe in teaching the heart as well as the head.  I believe that teaching doesn't stop until learning has taken place. I believe in creativity and innovation in education in order to help prepare our students for success in today's ever changing world.  I believe that an inspired educator is the most important factor in supporting our students' success in school.  I believe that Toniata fulfills all of the points stated above.  We honour tradition as well as look to learn about new ideas that have a significant impact on student learning.  Our staff are engaged in professional learning teams that meet regularly to discuss instructional practices, moderate student work and learn new strategies and techniques they can use in their classrooms.  We understand that we have both a learning practice and a teaching practice.  We are learners first!  We know that this influences our teaching practice for the betterment of our students' achievement. 

Our students are at the heart of what we do each day.  We have an active student council who represent the student voice here at Toniata.  They run spirit assemblies, special events for things such as "Bullying Prevention Week" and they recognize their peers for acts of character (caring, empathy, honesty, resilience, etc) on a weekly basis by awarding an individual the "Golden Skate."  Students participate in a variety of extra - curricular activities that include many athletic teams (soccer, cross country running, volleyball, basketball, hockey, track and field), intramural leagues such as pinball and clubs such as the Knitting Club and the Construction Club.

Our school has a rich tradition of musicals.  Our musicals are a highlight of each year with many students participating across several grades.  The performance is held each spring in one of our neighbouring high school's auditorium.  This year's play will be, "Alice in Wonderland."  We are looking forward to this big event!

Thank you for taking the time to check in with us.  If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me at the school or by email.
