Message from the Principal

Welcome To McKay School where “ Lion Pride Reigns” .

Greetings McKay Families,

I am so excited to be a part of this incredible school community. Despite the challenges that COVID and the lockdown continue to present, the warm welcome from the staff and members of the community have already made me feel welcome. This is my 9th year as a principal, with 4 years as a vice-principal before that. I was honoured to be principal of Princess Elizabeth School in Welland, and before that, Winger School in Wainfleet. As well, I have been a Vice-Principal at Glynn. A. Green school in Foothill, and Garrison Road in Fort Erie. Each of my educational experiences has taught me so much, and I know that I will learn a lot from McKay as well. I believe so strongly in the importance of creating schools that protect, nurture, and foster a love of learning in their students. Schools play a key role in the lives of our children, and if we are going to give them the best experience we all need to work together. I believe in the importance of open communication between home and school, and a team approach where we set high expectations for all our children. If we have communication, collaboration, and high expectations, we will help our children reach their full potential.

I am so excited to be on this journey with all of you.

Mr. Burns
