Welcome to Glen Allan School
My Name is Mr. Arbuthnott and welcome to the Glen Allan Elementary School. At Glen Allan School we believe that each child is unique, that all children can learn and that all children can succeed. We nurture excellence in academics, athletics and the arts. Our safe and caring learning environment promotes student growth in citizenship and character education. Glen Allan is known as the school that challenges and cherishes every child.
While our students are our pride and joy, we also take great delight in the close bonds and mutually supportive relationship that our highly professional staff has established with our parent community. Our school council actively promotes excellence in learning and helps to enrich the school experiences of students through a number of school programs.
Again, welcome to our school. Enjoy your visit.

2016-2017 Parent Survey: Results
Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) is committed to ensuring all parents and guardians of students within the Division have a chance to share their thoughts on the overall performance of their school and the Division. One of the ways EIPS ensures its parent’s voices are heard is by conducting an annual parent survey.
In January, the Division invited EIPS families to participate in the 2016–2017 Parent Survey. The survey included 15 questions regarding topics such as the quality of teaching, school leadership, parent engagement and more. The overall response rate was 16 per cent, which included close to 2,700 responses from parents and guardians across the Division.
The feedback gathered will help the Division measure its progress towards meeting the goals and priorities outlined in the EIPS 2015–2018 Three-Year Education Plan and develop strategies to better serve its students and the wider community.
Key Glen Allan School Council (GASC) Volunteer Roles Available for the 2017/2018 School Year
Two key volunteer roles at Glen Allan will be available next year - the Chair and Programs Vice-Chair positions on school council.
Fortunately, the role of coordinating the hot lunch program has been filled. If anyone is interested in co-coordinating the program, please contact Jen Dyer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The following two roles are still available:
The Chair is responsible for how GASC is run overall and chairs the monthly evening meetings. This is a perfect role for a parent or guardian who works outside the home during the day as daytime availability is not required for the role. The time commitment, including meetings, is approximately three to five hours a month.
The Programs Vice-Chair works with various volunteer program coordinators and serves as a liaison with school council. This person determines, with administration, calendar dates for programs during the year and helps find volunteers to assist with the various annual school programs organized by GASC. The time commitment, including meetings, is approximately two to eight hours a month. Daytime availability is not required for the role, but is preferable.
Unfortunately, if these key volunteer roles are not filled, the programs we have grown to love at Glen Allan may not be able to continue.
If you or someone you know may be interested, or would like to learn more about the volunteer roles, please call Karen Tomnuk at 780-416-0225 or email@example.com. Alternatively, please feel free to speak with Jenn Dyer, Programs Vice-Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org or 780-499-4100.
