Weekly Bulletin 15 May, 2022

Dear CA Community,

We hope this Weekly Bulletin finds you well. It's been a busy week at Canadian Academy- but a relatively quiet one with our secondary school students learning off campus.

Speaking of which, we have heard from students and faculty that the trips were fantastic opportunities to challenge oneself as well as explore Japan. And with the wet weather, it also provided an opportunity to show flexibility as some activities were modified or changed completely. We hope to be able to share some of our students' reactions and thoughts in regards to our Week Without Walls in the coming week.

Thank you to those who purchased tickets for our elementary play. Unfortunately, the show had to be postponed--- hang on to those tickets! More information will be shared when it becomes available.

And now is a good time to plug our middle school play, Agatha Rex, with performances set for Thursday, June 2 and Friday, June 3. Tickets can be purchased at

As this is the final week for our Diploma Program exams, our students must be looking forward to Saturday's Prom, to be held in our beautiful atrium. And with our graduation on Saturday, May 28th, we will celebrate their success outside on Nestle field.

With the warmer weather, it's time for a picnic. Have you seen the CA picnic mats/leisure sheets? They are fabulous-- I've got one and I love it. Check them out at the PTA's online Falcon Store at

Enjoy the week ahead, and take care!
