Principal’s Message

It is an honour to be the principal of our thriving middle school.  Our student body consists of 650+ adolescent students who enjoy learning and take part in the many opportunities provided by our fabulous staff.  The calm learning tone that is evident as I walk through classrooms in the morning switches quickly to an exciting lunch time where numerous clubs and activities are full with passionate students and staff.  After school the gym becomes alive with the roar of cheers for our many sports teams.  We are proud of so many things at SMS:

  • our early and late French Immersion programs
  • our thriving sports program
  • our talented musicians in our music program
  • a variety of explorations for our students which has expanded this year to include hockey and robotics
  • an excellent leadership program which sets the positive culture in our school
  • student centered learning in our classrooms
  • passionate students and staff
  • our PAC and parents who works hard to support our school
  • our school based team who meet regularly to best support the diverse social, emotional and learning needs of our students
  • our welcoming environment in our well resourced library (with a fabulous view of Shuswap Lake)

Please feel free to contact our office team (Clerical: Cinnamon/Kyla, Vice Principals: Chris Matheson/Laura Jegues) or myself, Wendy Woodhurst at any time with questions, concerns or suggestions.
