Principal's Message: 

Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,

As the incoming principal at Bill Woodward and Anzac Community School, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for another exciting year. I have been in the education system for 25 years including fifteen in administration. I am looking forward to starting the next chapter of my career in Anzac and meeting all of the students and their families.

The entire staff is excited to have students back in the classrooms. Our goal is to make every child feel safe and secure in our schools and provide an excellent environment for learning. We are very fortunate to have an amazing teaching and support staff that is dedicated to challenging each student to reach their full academic potential.

I am honoured to serve as the principal of Bill Woodward and Anzac School. It is a privilege to be a part of a community where parents, teachers, and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth.

Please contact me at cal.johnson@nsd61.ca if you have any questions or concerns.

Once again, welcome back!

Vice-Principal's message: 

Hello Students, Parents and Community members,

I am very excited to be starting the 2017-2018 School year as the Vice Principal of both Anzac and Bill Woodward Schools. I have been teaching with Northland since 2008, most of which has been spent here in this wonderful community.

We are looking forward to continuing the wonderful efforts of our staff to provide sports programs, mentor programs, community involvement, open door policies and positive learning environments to our schools. We are also happy to be welcoming some new staff members to the wolf pack, each of which will bring fresh ideas and excitement to our schools.

I hope everyone has had a great summer break and is ready to get back in the class! We are excited to see all of you and kick off a great school year.

Pride in the Wolf Pack
