On behalf of the staff of Gesner Street Elementary (Gesner), I am pleased to welcome you to the 2020 -21 school year at Gesner. Gesner supports students in grades Kindergarten to Grade 2 and has a student population of approximately 270 students. Our school has a long history of excellence in academics as well as Social and Emotional Learning.
It is a privilege to serve Gesner and the Oromocto community as the principal of Gesner Street School. I consider it an honor to have the opportunity to lead one of the best schools in this province with an excellent, professional staff dedicated to providing the best education possible each and every day. This year we all face challenges like no other time in history as a result of COVID-19 for all of our students and staff of Gesner. I have no doubt with the support of all our staff, families and community we will have a successful year. Our school has a bold vision to become a Centre of Excellence in Teaching and Learning being a leader in innovative practices in every classroom at Gesner. Our entire staff will be working on that pursuit over the school year and years ahead.
