Over the weekend, 16 Meadowridge students participated in the Canadian International Model UN Conference in downtown Vancouver. With close to 700 delegates at the conference, four Meadowridge students brought home individual awards!
Last year, over 300 people volunteered their time at Meadowridge. Our volunteers included parents, alumni, alumni parents, and even family friends; people who volunteered their time generously, before, during, and after school, and even on the weekends and into the evenings.
On any given day, our school is host to all sorts of events and activities. Whether you're joining us for your first year or your thirteenth year, you may find yourself from time-to-time wondering what in the world is the [insert event here]?! We're here to help.

I believe that part of being a good leader is knowing when to "do" and when to "delegate". By nature, I am really a "doer". However, I have learned through experience that almost all of the time, delegating responsibilities leads to the best outcomes.
“Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results…" I keep this mantra in mind whenever I'm acting in a position of leadership. If something isn't working, change strategies.”

Ms. Tamara Warner is one of the foundation builders, and for a few years now she has seen her first batches of students graduate. Hired in August 2000, Ms. Warner taught Grade 1 for seven years before moving to Kindergarten, from which she never wants to leave.
“What keeps me at Meadowridge are the personal and emotional connections. I am an emotional person, and the genuine feeling of belonging is so strong here.”
Avio Diniz, Faculty
Meadowridge students are full of joy, eager to learn, natural inquiries and have genuine care about others and our environment.
“They truly exemplify the IB Learner Profile attributes wonderfully.”
Learning to live well, with others and for others, in a just community
Our Mission is woven into our everyday actions and interactions. It acknowledges the importance of positive interactions with others and in seeking to better the community as we better ourselves.
It looks beyond gender, nationality, culture, and class. It guides staff, administration, students, and families to meet responsibilities and fulfill dreams.
