Message from the Principal

I continue to experience many positive things at TAPS. Parents are supportive and involved, and staff members are dedicated and caring.  Volunteers and members of our parent groups put forth countless hours and energy for the benefit of the staff and students. I am looking forward to developing relationships with students, parents, guardians, School Council and community partners that will build on our strengths. I am excited about working with the staff and students at TAPS. I welcome you to call, e-mail or stop in to speak to me.

I am committed to providing a safe and stimulating learning environment to ensure that all of our students have the best possible opportunity to reach their individual potential. Students can excel in many ways.  Whether it is in the classroom or on the playing field, whether it is academics, athletics, or the arts, we want them to strive to achieve at the highest level. Student success is made possible due to strong partnership between school and home.  We can all take pride in being part of the Tilbury Area Public School family!

As we continue on our educational journey, my message to the students is to always do your best and be your best. I encourage you to become involved and demonstrate your leadership abilities. There are no limits to what you can do.

Let’s work together and practice daily, the character traits that make Tilbury Area Public School a wonderful place to be.

Yours truly,

Mr. Lance Balkwill,
