Principal's Message

Thank you for your interest in our school. CGS has been a special place to start for so many children, and their families, since it was founded in 1986. We pride ourselves on getting to know each child and becoming their champion through their early and critical years of education.

From Preschool through Grade 3, we remain committed to our small class sizes and balanced curriculum. We believe that children can learn as much in music class as they can in math class. Along with our strong core curriculum, students are given regular opportunities to immerse themselves in the arts, technology and physical activity. Our goal is to provide an education that is rich and diverse by placing importance on all aspects of a wide and varied curriculum.

As founding Principal, I have been honoured to work with, and support, a staff that has always been known for their dedication and commitment. As part of the CGS philosophy, each and every student is recognized and celebrated for who they are. CGS teachers deliver an exceptional program while keeping the heart in education.

I encourage you to come and visit us and see first-hand what makes CGS the special place it is. We hope you feel it as soon as you come through our doors!
