Principal's Message
Posted on 10/18/2021

We are excited to be back to learning in-person for the 2021-2022 school year. We are back offering extra-curricular clubs, activities, and athletics and are thrilled to be able to offer these experiences to students face to face.

Being the principal of Kingston Secondary School and Module Vanier is particularly special to me as I taught at the former Q.E.C.V.I and worked as principal of the former K.C.V.I. Reflecting on how these experiences impacted me as an educator, I look forward to engaging in thoughtful conversations to shape the future of Kingston Secondary School and Module Vanier.

We are fortunate to have a collaborative, caring, and dedicated staff who love teaching and are leaders in the district in anti-racism and equity learning. The entire school staff have high expectations for students to be engaged, motivated, and responsible learners. In addition, I am committed to actively listening and supporting students to thrive in their classes and provide them with opportunities to develop to their full potential as learners.

I look forward to an excellent school year at Vanier and at K.S.S., getting to know students and staff. From my daily classroom visits around the school, I have been very impressed with students continuing their positive efforts to comply with all COVID safety measures and to engage in extracurricular opportunities.

Our vice-principals' support student learning and are responsible for the following:

Madame Brennan:  Module Vanier and KSS School to Community Program (613 544-4811 Extension 11105)
Mr. Lonny Gibson: Grade 10 and 12 (613 544-4811 Extension 11102)
Mr. Chris Morrow: Grade 9 and 11 (613 544-4811 Extension 11103)

I look forward to developing a rich learning partnership between home and school.

Take good care and stay safe,

Principal Darlene Scarlett
