Change of Principal for Sept. 2018

Announcements have been made as to the changes in Principals & Vice-Principals for 2018-2019 for SD83. After 12 years at Bastion, first as a teacher, then a Vice-Principal & the last five years as Principal, I will now be moving on to the South Canoe Elementary Outdoor Learning School as of August 1, 2018. It has been a real pleasure to work at Bastion with fabulous students and staff  & the wonderfully supportive community. I look forward to my new adventure, yet will cherish my years here.

I wish the best to the new incoming Principal Mr. Joel Menzies, currently Principal at Ranchero. Mr. Jared King will remain as Vice Principal.  In the meantime…. lots of work to do until year end! 🙂

Parent Satisfaction Survey

It’s that time of the year when we once again ask that you let us know how we’re doing. The Survey is available until April 30. Please see the link below for the Parent Satisfaction Survey.  Click on the link or cut and paste to your Browser.  Parent Logon should be at the bottom of the page. Use the Direct Access Logon as no code is required. We appreciate your feedback and will use it as we do our Site Planning and set some goals for next year. Grade 4 students at Bastion and throughout the province will also have an opportunity to complete the student survey.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

School District No. 83 Quick Survey

Dear staff, students, parents and guardians, and other community members,

As we move into the early stages of implementing our District Strategic Plan (, we wish to do a quick “check-in” on where the stakeholders see our progress so far. As well, our newly formed Communication Committee is considering how our District and the schools interact with their community, and looking at some ways we might improve this critical part of our work in support of our second goal area in the Plan.

This survey will be open for one week for anyone who has received this email. Please click on the link below and take just a few minutes to answer these questions and help guide our work going forward.

Thank you,

Peter Jory

Superintendent of Schools/CEO
