Brian Campbell, Principal of Westfield Secondary School
Dear Westfield Community：
Greetings and welcome to Westfield! We are entering a very challenging time for education in 2020, but it is important for all of us to know that we can succeed and thrive together! Though I have worked in Ontario Education for more than a decade, I know as Principal it is vital to lead our staff not just in academics, but in health and safety promotion. That is why here at Westfield we have put in place a comprehensive safety plan that protects all students and staff, while still providing a quality education. But we are excited for this upcoming year for another reason – our extra curriculars and clubs this year will bring tremendous energy and passion to our academic program! We know that our students will have a fantastic year. So from everyone here at Westfield, we say welcome, and good luck in the 2020-2021 school year!
I have earned the president position in the Students’ Council. I never thought I could actually become this leader who I dreamed to be. I have been through a lot of elections in my life, some I failed, some I just gave up. But this time, Westfield’s students and teachers trusted me and gave this chance, and I am very grateful. I had one gap year, totally lost; one year in a school that I did not feel I belonged in. Westfield brought my confidence back. I am proud to say, I have reached a high point in my life, with acceptances from Rotman Commerce, McGill’s Commerce, UTM’s Commerce with Scholarship.
I am very grateful to my teachers and staffs for my achievement. When I started my journey at Westfield, I was filled with nervousness and doubt. However, the enthusiasm of the teachers, staff, and students helped me quickly adapt to the community. Westfield not only galvanized my academic capabilities but also gave me love and care.
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!
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!
Hello everybody. I’m so lucky to study at Westfield Secondary School. I really enjoy Westfield because they’re very friendly and nice to me. I like them a lot. Westfield has a fun game room where I can play pool and table ping pong with my friends. After we finish class we have study hall. All our teachers help us to improve our skills in each subject. I am improving my English day by day being here better than I would have at home. I hope to see you here soon!
