From The

Principal's Desk


Dear Parents,

September has unfolded a kaleidoscope of experiences, promising something for everyone. United by the essence of remarkable events that define our multicultural community, Aequitas, our student-led initiative, stands as a beacon of unity and inclusivity. It embodies the heart and soul of our Oakridge family, reminding us that equal representation and belonging are at the core of our values.

As we celebrate our students’ achievements and creative expressions, we also recognize the impact they are making beyond our school gates, from social purpose initiatives to environmental conservation efforts.

As we continue our journey, let us carry the spirit of unity and curiosity with us. Together, we will explore, learn, uplift, and embrace the fresh opportunities that lie ahead.

Thank you for being an integral part of the Oakridge family, and here’s to a month filled with fulfillment and positive impact!
