EMCS opens its doors to the community

‘We’re proud of what we do,’ says principal

Edward Milne Community School threw open its doors and invited the community to come in and take a look at what the school has to offer last Thursday.

“We have an open house every year and we’re particularly proud of what we do,” said EMCS principal Laura Fulton.

We particularly want the community to feel welcome and to come in and take a look at what we offer to the young people of the community.”

Fulton said the open house is generally aimed at Grade 8 students who will be attending EMCS next year, and is designed to give them an opportunity to look around the school and talk to teachers and other staff.

“We also aim to help out our existing students who are contemplating their courses for next year,” said Fulton.

To that end, the school has presentations and information available from the universities and colleges in the region.

“This is a great opportunity for the entire community to come in and see what’s happening in their community high school. There are so many exciting activities and services … it’s a fabulous place and we’re proud to be a part of it,” said Fulton.
