Principal's Message

Dear Families:


We extend a warm welcome to everyone. At Silver Pines, we strive to foster a learning environment where people of all ages work and grow together, experience the joy of learning and develop the skills, attitudes and knowledge needed to be life-long learners and respectful, contributing members of society.  The learning and safety of each and every student at Silver Pines Public School is important to us. Teachers, educational assistants, administration, school council, office staff, caretakers and families work together to foster a positive, respectful learning environment.


Last year students, staff and parents worked to develop the Silver Pines Touchstone.  The Touchstone represents who we are as a school at present and what we strive to be moving forward.


At Silver Pines we are one big family. We lift each other up if we fall.

We include everyone and strive to make all members of our community feel safe and welcome.

We are not afraid to stand out and make a difference.

We are kind and caring, treating others the way we want to be treated.

We use our voices to tell the truth and stand up for  what we believe in.

We ask questions, have fun, and think critically and creatively.

We take initiative to care for ourselves and the world around us.

We set academic and social goals and persevere to achieve them, moving forward while learning from the past.

We are a big forest of trees, we grow tall, we grow strong, we grow together…

but branch out in our own way.

Be a leader,

Be a learner,

Have a voice,

And inspire learning!


We are committed to creating a positive climate for learning that is safe, respectful, engaging, inclusive and caring. We make every effort to nurture the academic success and the personal well-being of our students in order to prepare them for the exciting challenges of the 21st century. We look forward to continuing our journey and partnership. 


Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you have any questions. We welcome the opportunity to speak with you. We wish you all a happy, safe and successful school year!
