exciting opportunities and activities at Westdale!
Mr. Gus Watanabe, Westdale School’s new vice-principal! Mr. Watanabe is
currently a guidance counsellor at Vincent Massey Collegiate where he has
also been the Student Services Program Leader and Guidance Program Leader.
Mr. Watanabe believes that “Education is a joint effort between the school
system, parents and community and its aim is to guide children towards good

Mrs. Donna Peterson, who will be moving to South Pointe School, as an EAL EA! A great big THANK YOU is extended to Mrs. Peterson for her positive contributions throughout her years at Westdale. Mrs.Peterson’s passion for helping out and working with the cheerleaders will be missed. We wish her the best of everything as she begins a new educational adventure at a brand new school. Exciting!
Miss Cassie Reimer, who will be returning to Westdale for the coming year! Miss Reimer will be teaching Grade 8 and 9 Phys. Ed., Personal Fitness, Outdoor Ed., Leadership, and ELA. We are very excited, thrilled, in fact, to have Miss Reimer back, and we thank her for her numerous contributions to Westdale.
Mrs. Margaret Ilderton, who will be retiring! Mrs. Ilderton has been as solid as a rock at Westdale during her time at Westdale, providing assistance wherever, and whenever it was needed. She will be deeply missed, as her work with students and in the canteen have been exemplary. However, we know where she lives, and we hope our paths will continue to cross in the years to come.
Mrs. Denise Checkowski, who will be retiring! Mrs. Checkowski has been
greeting and sending students home at the beginning and end of every school
day with a smile and a warm welcome or goodbye. We will miss her
contributions to Westdale, and wish her the best as she begins a new chapter
in her life which involves travel.
