June 3rd        GBSS Idol Finale
June 10



On Wednesday, April 20, 2016 at 7 pm, any interested adults in the community, including parents of children from all of our Meaford schools, are invited to attend a Social Media Awareness presentation in the Meaford Community School gymnasium. Doors will open at 6:30 pm, with free refreshments available. The presenter will be our community officer, Constable Melissa Barfoot. This presentation is for adults only and will include information on Snapchat, Twitter, Facebook, KIK, Tumblr and online gaming. Please plan to attend. It is important that parents be aware of both how these communication mediums are used and what inherent risks and dangers exist.

Thank you to MacDonald's Furniture Meaford for the donation of a sofa!  It is a great addition to Rm 110 which is a space space for independent learning and one on one assistance. We appreciate your support!!
