Principal's Message

Welcome to all our returning and new students and their families to Westwood Primary School. Please take the time to search our school web page to find out about the many educational activities that make Westwood Primary School such a special and vibrant place. 

Westwood Primary is one of only two primary schools in Prince Edward Island.  It services approximately 600 students from Kindergarten to grade three.  As a dual track school, we offer programs in both English and Early French Immersion.  Our teachers and staff set high expectations for our students and in addition to our core curricular areas, we offer physical education, music, and library programs. Our students have the opportunity to participate in Music Adventures, intramurals, leadership activities, early morning breakfast program, Westy’s Chesskateers and after-school seasonal sporting activities.    

Education is a joint venture between school and home and we work with our young students to help them learn about the world around them through the prescribed curriculum and the daily social interactions that they are a part of.  We very much appreciate the support that parents give their children at home as they strive to reach these academic and social learning goals.  We are committed to providing our students with a safe and caring environment at school and, as such, we model, teach, discuss, and expect appropriate conduct to achieve this. 

At Westwood, we value the daily contributions of community and parent volunteers who assist with such things as our Breakfast for the Learning program, reading and library programs, as well as special class activities and field trips.  Thank you so much… the invaluable time you dedicate to our school and students is greatly appreciated! We encourage all parents to become a part of our Westwood Home & School. We feel fortunate to have dedicated parents who support our school and all of our activities through this group.  

Have a wonderful and exciting year at Westwood Primary! 

Sherry Flynn – Principal
