Principal's Message


Welcome to Ellerslie Campus. We are a Kindergarten through Grade 9 Learning Community with approximately 600 students and our numbers continue to grow. At Ellerslie Campus, staff are committed to ensuring that students receive high levels of instruction and opportunities for learning in three key areas; academics, physical fitness and citizenship.

Ellerslie campus is dedicated to high levels of achievement. The staff of Ellerslie Campus embrace the premise that the very purpose of our school is to help all students learn at high levels. There is no ambiguity or hedging regarding this commitment to learning. Staff go beyond ensuring that children are taught, to ensuring that all students learn essential knowledge, skills, and attitudes. This focus is evident in every aspect of our school culture, as staff continually examine evidence of student learning, and further, identify interventions necessary to ensure all students learn.

Physical fitness and athletics play an important role in the education of all children. Ellerslie staff are committed to ensuring that students have every opportunity to develop their physical skills. This is evident not just in a commitment to sport, but in a commitment to learning physical activities and attitudes that will result in a life-long commitment to health and fitness.

Teaching Citizenship is more than just repeating character traits each month. Ellerslie staff and students are dedicated to teaching and learning essential life skills and characteristics necessary to thrive in the 21st century. Some of these skills include leadership, accountability, adaptability, initiative and self-direction, cross-cultural skills, responsibility, problem-solving, communication, creativity and teamwork. Ellerslie staff teach a generation of leaders one child at a time.

Teaching students to embrace excellence in academics, physical fitness and citizenship is more than an exercise in semantics; it is a commitment. Parents and community members can expect that learning will always be at the top of the Ellerslie agenda as we challenge ourselves and all students to excel in every area of their education. Welcome to a journey of achievement and excellence.

Proud to be the Principal,

Henry Madsen
