Principal bids a fond farewell to Cumberland Junior

Dear editor,

As I sail off into the sunset to join the dinosaurs and retire from SD71 I would like to express my thanks both to the district as a whole but especially to the village of Cumberland.

I have greatly enjoyed being a principal in the Comox Valley and despite the present awkward situation have always enjoyed the relationship I have had with the teachers on staff.

The staff at Cumberland Junior are excellent and it has been an enjoyable end to 39 years in education.

As partners, we have strived to provide the best education possible for the students at Cumberland Junior and I believe it has worked.

The parents and the community have always been there to support us and I will miss your honesty and friendship.

As Cumberland continues to expand and develop I wish you all the best.

Soon I will be able to enjoy having a beer, drinking a coffee or having a meal anytime, anyday in a village that I have been proud to work in.

Thank you.

Philip Maund
