Read about all the highlights of the year, and learn more about how School Council represents your voice at Bowmore!

Goodbye from Principal Hanson

"Good-bye Bowmore, It is with deep appreciation that I write to you, as Bowmore Principal, for one last time. After five wonderful years at Bowmore, I am leaving to embrace new experiences as the principal at Kimberley /Beaches Alternative Schools...." Read Principal Hanson's goodbye message here

On June 20, we learned that our school Principal, Lilian Hanson, will be leaving Bowmore after 5 years. Ms. Hanson will be moving to a different neighbourhood school, Kimberley PS/Beaches Alternative. We wish her much success in her new placement, and are sorry to see her go. 

Additionally, due to changes in staffing allocations TDSB-wide, Bowmore is losing our second Vice-Principal. Stevan Ivancevic will be leaving Bowmore and we wish him well.

In September, Bowmore will be welcoming a new Principal, Thelma Sambrook. Ms. Sambrook comes to us from Summit Heights PS in North York. We will post a letter of introduction from Ms. Sambrook on this site soon.
