Frank Marchini–Director of Westfield Education
Dear Westfield Community：
We have had an exciting start to our 2018-2019 school year. Our school population has grown, students are meeting fresh new faces and have more course options than ever before to select from. We are also seeing the benefits of our unique Foundations Language Program that began in July to better prepare students to be fully immersed in a Canadian school. Considering our initiatives and growth, we can proudly say Westfield is working hard to provide the best of care and education to our local and international students who are looking to challenge themselves and prepare for life at the post-secondary level.
Education is undeniably a community effort. We are thankful for our hard working faculty and staff who make Westfield a wonderful place to work and learn. Without their hard work, many wonderful opportunities that are provided to our students would not be possible. Most importantly, I would like to thank parents for trusting Westfield to provide a safe learning environment for their students. By supporting the ideals, expectations, and policies of Westfield, parents, teachers, and administrators are collectively raising students to enter adulthood with maturity and a strong sense of responsibility.
We encourage all members of our community to communicate with the Westfield administration team to help with any concerns. Open lines of communication are integral to future improvement and better day-to-day experience. I look forward to hearing from all of you at some point throughout the year. Let’s make the 2018-2019 academic year one to remember!
At the beginning of my journey here at Westfield, I was filled with doubt and a lot of nerves. However, the enthusiastic teachers and staff, along with the energetic students helped me to adapt to this community quickly. I enjoy and appreciate my time here. Westfield is my home away from home.
Westfield Secondary is a great school to me. The students are friendly, and I can make friends with people from different countries. The teachers here are great, they are always here to listen and help us with any problems we come across. I would recommend Westfield Secondary to anyone interested in coming here!
I feel like the staff and teachers are friends. They are caring towards my study and life. They have helped build my confidence day by day, and improve my English which helps me adjust to local life. My parents are so proud of me and its all thanks to Westfield!
I came to Canada being excited but also feeling very nervous. I did not have any confidence in speaking English, but the teaching at Westfield help me to rebuild my confidence and has motivated me to improve my learning.
It’s been a few months now that I have been studying at Westfield. From the first day I came, Westfield made me feel very welcomed. Everyone is very friendly and communicative. The teachers are extremely caring and kind, and they really want us to succeed. Westfield has made me feel at home!
