We Are KPR
Through the #WeAreKPR campaign, we are sharing the faces and stories of your local public schools. Our staff, as ambassadors of public education, work together to help students experience many kinds of success. From our teachers, to our secretaries, custodians, educational assistants, child and youth workers, early childhood educators, counsellors and other professionals, and central support staff, we are fortunate to have so many wonderful people in our schools and school board whose impacts cannot be overstated.
Through short video profiles of KPR staff, you will see reflected our values and beliefs about inclusion, equity and student success.
