School Blog

The purpose of West Island College’s blog is to communicate matters that are important to our school and to give readers a deeper insight into our Vision, Mission, and Values. It does not replace the WIC weekly, email, or our other social media platforms which will all continue to be used to communicate events, highlight achievements, and provide important, timely information.
