Principal's Message

Welcome to Hillcrest High School, Home of the Hawks! 






A Retiring Principal’s Message

School year 2021-2022

Hi Hawks

 

I am not sure where  30 years in public education went. I have been  fortunate to work in two provinces, in the elementary and secondary panels. I consider myself very happy to be  able to finish my career here at Hillcrest High School.

As I write this message,  I am grounded in the belief that Hillcrest is a school rich in students and staff  diversity coming from many different lived experiences,  from many different locations across our globe.  The global pandemic has highlighted for all of us how connected our students and families and  staff are to so many places in the world. This diversity is our strength of community.

 

Our differences also highlight the need for change and reorganization to ensure all our intersectionality is recognized, valued and honored.  Where this is not happening, we have to have honest open conversation to address that.   To this end, we all continue our  fight against racism, bias and prejudice, anti black racism,  anti indigenous racism, islamophobia, homophobia and transphobia in all forms. At Hillcrest we  strived  daily to  build relationships within our schools and the community. We continue to learn and  recognize  that we are at times the very barriers to deconstructing colonialism as a result of our own education and the narrative of what we have been taught and learned in school about racism. 

I want to say to all of you, what  a privilege and honor it has been to serve as your Principal. I wish you all the best in all your future endeavors, Keep focused on setting your goals. You all have  made the best of a challenging world situation by being your best self!! 

I know you all join me in welcoming Ms. Janice Isaac who will lead you from here as your new principal Feburary 1, 2022
