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.

Read on to find out how this, and other sentiments from Dr. David Tranter are shaping our thoughts on student well-being and academic achievement.

Finishing Strong

As we end another school year impacted by COVID-19, many educators and students are glad to see the back of it and quietly slip away into summer. How do we THRIVE and finish PURPOSEFULLY? In this blog post we hear from our school community on what finishing strong means to them.
