Welcome Back

Welcome to the 2023-24 school year at Whycocomagh Education Centre. Our theme for 2023-24 is “Diving into Success”. We want to immerse our students in rich, rigorous and meaningful learning experiences that prepare them academically, behaviourally, socially and emotionally. Our teachers and staff have been working hard to prepare for the arrival of our students by developing our 2023-24 Student Success Plan.  A new writing continuum is being developed, two new strategies in math are being worked on as well as a committee has been developed to support Restorative Practices in the classroom and school community.

Our Communication Plan for the year has also been developed. Instead of sending home hardcopies of our newsletter we will be taking advantage of technology and using our social media accounts as well as our alert system to communicate with our WEC families. Once per month, we will be developing a newsletter which highlights one of our beautiful homeroom classrooms. The copies will be sent home electronically and highlighted on our social media accounts. Also, on each Friday the school will be sending home an electronic “WEC What’s Up” which will be a review of all events happening in the following week.

We are looking forward to seeing our families and friends drop into the school to introduce themselves and have a voice in their child’s learning. Please do not hesitate to contact the office at any time at [email protected]

Hope to see you all at our Back to School BBQ! More details will follow in the upcoming weeks.

Yours Truly,


Melanie MacDonald, Principal
