SCHOOL FEES

If you have not been in to pay the 2018-19 school fees, please do so as soon as possible.  This year all outstanding fees that are not paid by November will be sent to collections.  If you require a payment plan please contact Debbie Stafford at 819-663-4842 extension 1 to set one up.

IMPORTANCE OF DAILY READING

We encourage every student in the school to read every night.  Start the year off right by setting aside time where the TV, video games and computers are shut off and you have time to enjoy reading with your child.  It will make a huge difference in the success they have at school.

ANTI – BULLYING PROGRAM

Greater Gatineau staff members have been trained in anti-bullying initiatives, and we are committed to ensuring the safety and security of students at school.

If your child complains about an act of violence, or bullying at school, please contact us so that we can address the issue.  Please check our website for more details.
