Principal's Message

Dear Gerald McShane Community,

It is a great pleasure to welcome you to Gerald McShane Elementary School website. I hope you take the time to peruse the site to learn more about us.

At the centre of our excellent school is an outstanding faculty and staff who are dedicated to providing our students an experience and learning environment in which they can thrive and feel valued as an important part of the school community. Our school’s mission is to provide students with a safe, supportive, inclusive, diverse and equitable environment in which to learn, grow and play together.

We are a French immersion school, offering a bilingual education starting from Pre-Kindergarten through a curriculum aligned with the Québec Education Program (QEP). At the same time, we promote students’ curiosity in learning by challenging them to engage beyond the curriculum, to explore their own interests and aptitudes, and to embrace risk-taking. We work in partnership with a supportive and committed parent community to develop the whole child and educate the leaders of tomorrow.

At Gerald McShane School, we want every child to experience “excellence.” Excellence is defined differently for every individual and for every school. But whatever excellence looks like for a student, we celebrate their achievements and personal growth, be it academic, athletic, or artistic. Our goal is to help every child fulfill their potential by giving them the tools and support they need to learn and thrive.

Should you wish to visit the school, please don’t hesitate to call us to make an appointment. We wish all our students a very successful school year.

David Lee, M.Ed.
