Principal's Message

Welcome to Irma Coulson Public School!
In our THIRD  year together as a Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8 school our team of amazing staff are looking forward to continuing our work around our themes of:
  • Equity and Excellence for ALL
  • Creating Global Learners and Leaders for the 21st Century  
  • We continue to work hard as a school community to engage our student’s every day and while we learn, our students will be leading by making a positive difference for each other, our school, and our local and global communities  
We are fortunate to be partnered with Right to Play - an organization that is bringing sport to children who have experienced difficult life circumstances in some of the most challenged countries in our world.  As an organization, Right to Play believes very strongly in “Look after Yourself, Look After One Another” and you will see this belief written on a simple Red Soccer ball, which they have distributed throughout the world to promote the idea that when kids play, the world wins.  At Irma Coulson P.S., we will be working together to show through our actions what it means to Look After Yourself, Look After One Another in our belief about what it means to show we C.A.R.E.:
        C – Community
        A - Acceptance
        R - Respect
        E – Excellence

As our incredible Staff of 'Believers' come together at ICPS, ALL of us will be working together in creating a safe and welcoming learning community for every student to ensure that they know they belong.  We also know that when our students have understood and demonstrated what it means to C.A.R.E. they will be successful learners and leaders as we embark on our journey of equity and excellence for all.

It's going to be another AWESOME YEAR together!
