Principal's Message

Welcome to Black River Public School! Since our opening in 1996 our school has proudly offered a vibrant, engaging and exciting learning environment for students and has become an integral part of our neighbourhood and community.

Like all schools, we are learning and adapting to our rapidly changing world as we respond to the innovative and creative ideas that our students bring with them every day. Guided by our board's commitment to equity, innovation and developing the leadership capactiies of all ; our school staff, students and families are working together to understand and ignite a learning community that values our gifts, respects the rights of all and challenges each of us to do our best and be our best.
Uniquely, Black River Public School is also part of a thriving collaboration between the YRDSB, the York Catholic District School Board, the Chippewas of Georgina Island​ and the Town of Georgina. Our partnership with St. Bernadette Catholic Elementary School, Upper Canada Child Care, the Georgina Leisure Pool and the Georgina Library-Peter Gzowkski Branch represents a unique, community-focused resource that is an integral part of the Sutton and Jacksons Point area.
In addtion to these partnerships; we are also proud of the relationships we have fostered with our Black River parents and families. We appreciate the many ways they contribute to the well-being of our students and school community; formally, through our School Council and other school committees and initiatives, and informally, by being caring and active supporters of their children's well-being and learning. 
I am a long-time Georgina resident and am delighted to be able to serve in the community I have raised my family in and know so well. As principal of our school, my role is also my goal; to ensure that Black River Public School is a welcoming and safe community of learners for all; students, staff and parents. I believe our public schools are a treasure and serve as the foundation of our democratic society- I am proud to be the principal of Black River Public School.

I welcome your connections & conversations; in the school yard, the classrooms or halls and online via twitter, @blackriverps or email at
