At Bobcaygeon Public School We Empower Leadership and Celebrate Greatness !

We are a Leader in Me School!

Practice Habit #3 and practice putting first things first – – It is important when things get busy to ensure that you are putting in place a plan for the most important items to get finished before filling in your time with the tasks that are less important. Don’t forget to ensure that you are planning and looking after yourself (mind, body, spirit and heart) when you are setting your agenda.

Here is our weekly update for April 25-April 29
