Welcome to Our School!

Welcome

 

 Nicholas Shea

Principal

 

 

Welcome to Vincent Massey Public School.
Our motto is I am because we are...together we are community.
Join us in celebrating our diversity!!
 

Indigenous Education and connection to the land:

Vincent Massey Public School is learning about and following the Sacred Teachings of the Indigenous Culture. February is the month where we will be focusing on Wisdom.

The beaver represents wisdom because he uses his natural gift wisely for his survival.  The beaver also alters his environment in an environmentally friendly and sustainable way for the benefit of his family. To cherish knowledge is to know wisdom. Use your inherent gifts wisely and live your life by them.  Recognize your differences and those of others in a kind and respectful way.  Continuously observe the life of all things around you.  Listen with clarity and a sound mind.  Respect your own limitations and all those who are around you. Allow yourself to learn and live by your wisdom.

Black History Month

Ubuntu: I am because we are!

         Humanae Project:

Humanæ is a photographic work in progress by artist Angélica Dass, an unusually direct reflection on the color of the skin, attempting to document humanity’s true colors rather than the untrue labels “white”, “red”, “black” and “yellow” associated with race. It’s a project in constant evolution seeking to demonstrate that what defines the human being is its inescapably uniqueness and, therefore, its diversity. The background for each portrait is tinted with a color tone identical to a sample of 11 x 11 pixels taken from the nose of the subject and matched with the industrial pallet Pantone®, which, in its neutrality, calls into question the contradictions and stereotypes related to the race issue.
