Journey to Ivor Dent School


Principal's Message

As principal, I am both humbled and inspired when I think about the many contributions Dr. Ivor Dent made to our city. He is truly a role model for all of us - children and adults alike. Opening a new school is an amazing opportunity for a principal, and I am especially honoured to be the principal of Ivor Dent School. I am looking forward to collaborating with you to create  an engaged and vibrant community of learners that will honour his legacy.
