I love reading the mission statements and core values of organizations.

I know Dalhousie Elementary School fairly well, as my two sons successfully graduated from the institution. What the school stands for, based on its mission statement, is clear:

"Dalhousie School provides a safe, nurturing and accepting child-centred learning environment which enables each child to develop to his/her intellectual, physical, emotional and social potential.

"Pembina Trails is dedicated to educational excellence through challenging and enriching experiences for all, in a safe and caring community."

I totally agree with this mission statement.

Of no less importance are the school’s four core values — kindness, safety, responsibility and respect.

 But the most amazing thing about Dalhousie these days is the phenomenal face-lift the school has recently undergone. It is simply gorgeous and awe-inspiring to see a relatively old building re-invented, to become such an esthetically attractive masterpiece in the neighbourhood.

In fact, one of my sons enviably acknowledged the beautiful upgrade and complained that it was not done when he was still there as a student.

Inside Dalhousie, many good things are also happening. The school’s Grade 5 and 6 choir will perform Monday, March 10 at Westminster United Church as part of the Winnipeg Music Festival.

The Grade 6 recorder group will also perform at the festival on Wed., March 12 at Westworth United Church. And the Grade 6 handbell students are gearing up for a festival performance at Clifton School on Wed., March 19.

As well, all the school’s Grade 5 and 6 classes will be attending the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra’s elementary school concert on Wed., April 23 at Centennial Concert Hall — and both the Grade 5 and Grade 6 recorder ensembles have been asked to perform at the April 23 WSO concert.
