Welcome to sullivan community school

Message from the Principal

Principal’s Message

Public speaking is a long standing tradition at Sullivan Community School and dates back to when the school opened in 1969 as Sullivan Central School.  In January our junior and intermediate students were busy writing, memorizing and presenting their speeches to their classmates.  On February 5th, a select group of students will proceed to our school level public speaking competition. The top two students from each division are usually invited to present their speeches at the Royal Canadian Legion Public Speaking Competition which will be held at the Chatsworth Legion Branch on Saturday, February 15th starting at 9:30am.  We wish our young orators the best of luck and we are very proud of their efforts and courage to speak in front of an audience about a topic of personal interest to them.

The first Science Fair was held at Sullivan in 1982.  This year the Science and Heritage Fair projects will be presented in the gymnasium on Tuesday, March 10th, 2020.  Thank you to Mrs. Cottrill for supporting students through the scientific inquiry process and science fair project process and Mr. Arnold for offering the same coaching and support for students working on Heritage Fair Projects. We are anticipating having around 20 judges giving our students feedback during the school fair day. We appreciate the community support for this event.  Our students learn a great deal about their fair topics, and the inquiry process as well as developing numerous other skills such as research skills, note taking and summarization, time management, organization, critical thinking, and presentation skills.  We look forward to seeing the topics students present this year.  The March newsletter will provide information on when community members can come in to the school to see the projects.

The Bluewater District School Board has recently introduced its new vision statement, "Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow."  You will begin to see the new vision statement referenced on Sullivan Community School letterhead and documents, beginning with the February 2020 Sullivan Stinger Newsletter.  Inquiry-based learning, such as Science Fair and Heritage Fair projects, are great examples of how we are assisting our students today to learn skills that will make them successful tomorrow.  Similarly, Stingers public speaking experience adds to their leadership skills.

Your partner in learning,

Lori Klages
