Principal`s Message
Dear Emily Carr SS Community of Learners,
It is a true privilege to serve students, families and the community as the proud principal of Emily Carr Secondary School. I will work alongside all partners in education to affirm the lived experiences and self-determination of our students as they pursue their goals and develop their gifts and interests. 
Whether in Kindergarten, Gr. 11, or University, education right now in this moment presents difficulties and complications no students have ever had to deal with before. I invite all who live with, work with, learn with, or otherwise engage with the students of Emily Carr SS to “speak life into them” - to instill critical and material hope. ​
This means that in addition to offering a learning environment that promotes access and academic excellence for all,  the educators and non-teaching staff will continue to collaborate with students, families, and community partners  to intentionally nurture students’ identity formation, sense of purpose, emotional and physical well-being.  Our staff is also committed to personal reflection and professional learning that strengthens the critical consciousness of our learning community so that Emily Carr students grow confident making healthy and informed decisions in any situation.
Together, and with intention, we can sustain a healthy school community that provides the conditions that help students to flourish now and in the future. 

Wishing everyone connected to ECSS, a great year of learning ahead!

Deanna Heron (pronouns – she/her)
