Principal hopes ‘enrolment will climb’
(By Cheryl Rossi, Staff writer September 4, 2012)
The principal of Vancouver’s new aboriginal focus mini school says 13 students were enrolled in kindergarten to Grade 3 as of Wednesday morning.
“As with all things new, they start small and people watch. I’m hoping that the enrolment will climb as people begin to trust us more,” said Vonnie Hutchingson. At the beginning of August, enrolment at the school was listed at 6.
Hutchingson, who’s in her third week on the job, hopes to connect with parents as soon as possible.
“The focus has to be on parents, family and community and what it is that they want for their children and to help to implement that,” she said.
