Teacher Appreciation Day
The Elementary students of Town Centre Private Schools wrote and recorded messages and memories showing how much the appreciate their teachers.
We planned to move to our new home at Oakville a few years ago, but delayed the plan so that Colin could stay at Town Centre to complete his primary school education with his beloved Town Centre teachers and classmates.
Eight years ago, Colin started his new life as a student at Town Centre and he loved the school immediately. His favorite day was Monday, not weekend, because that’s the start of a happy week at the school. From Ms. Mangal to Mr. Paes, Colin has been so lucky to be taught by many knowledgeable and caring teachers, and be taken good care of by the school administration staff. At the end of every school year, we would receive a pile of school photos of class works, field trips, performance, and of course, parties. Oh, those beautiful memories!
Regretfully, we missed a lot of fun in the past year due to COVID-19. No field trip, no concert, and now all the kids are learning remotely from home, most likely for the rest of the school year. We think it’s time for us to move.
Thank you all! You have been, and will always be an important part of Colin’s life.
Dear Ms. Thadani,
Hope you are keeping safe and well.
My husband and I wanted to reach out to you to express our sincere gratitude and contentment regarding Town Centre’s online education program offered for the 2020-2021 school year for both of my children, Saiyuri and Ishan. Both have been home since March 2020 when the pandemic hit. Saiyuri is currently in Grade 3 (Ms. Pinto’s class) and Ishan is in Senior Prep (Ms. Mistry’s class).
During these uncertain times, the online education program provided by Town Centre has been a beacon of light for us as we were only comfortable with the children following an online program versus attending in-person sessions. Hence, the option offered by the school to have the online education program had quelled our anxieties. The outstanding quality of education, comprehensive subjects offered, and the wonderful and caring teachers have all surpassed our expectations.
Saiyuri’s teachers (Ms. Pinto and Mr. Leofanti) have reached out personally and spoken to both of us on how well our daughter has been doing in class. Similarly, Ms. Rakhi reached out to us a few times to ensure all is well. These small touches are truly unexpected but are most welcomed and appreciated. We are truly grateful and happy that our children have such amazing teachers.
The entire staff (in both campuses) and you have been doing an exceptional job adapting to the needs of our current times, providing comfort and flexibility to parents with a great online education program, maintaining the safety of everyone at school as a priority and ensuring that each child at home is not missing out on the main school activities / fun.
We can certainly appreciate that concurrently maintaining an online and in-class education system is very challenging and significant work. However, it should be known that all your efforts and hard work are most appreciated by us and we are certain that many other parents are also of the same opinion.
Thank you once again and stay safe.

Good evening! I wanted to take a moment to recognize the amazing job Aiden’s teachers have been doing.
Ms. Bala and Ms. Fernando have been phenomenal with being available to assist whenever Aiden has questions during class and ensuring he feels included. They make it a point to check in and connect with him to ensure he is doing well and he had been thriving with help!
Mr. Leofanti Aiden’s computer teacher has an amazing personality and Aiden loves being in his class. He has brought out Aiden’s love of computers and thanks to him Aiden is comfortable asking questions and has a real rapport with him. Great teachers who truly care and rare and Mr. Leofanti is one of those teachers who leave a positive and lasting impression and defines what a phenomenal teacher looks like.
Madame Rubin has been great as well and takes time even after school online hours to be available when Aiden has had questions. She is never too busy for questions and makes Aiden feel comfortable and learning in an environment where she provides praise and constructive feedback.
Mr. Forester always ensures that the virtual kids are included and that they are given the chance to participate and uses tools for assignments to upload videos of the exercises which Aiden really enjoys.
Thank you to all of Aiden’s teachers and please share with them our gratitude for providing normalcy during a time when many things are far from normal!
This is Paul, father of Ethan A. Liu from Class 2-120, hope all is well! Just want to give a shout out to the school for doing a great job with both in-class and virtual learning this school year during the unprecedented time. Compare to a couple of months ago during lockdown, we can see much effort has been put in ensuring students are able to learn and enjoy with both learning options.
We opted Ethan for eLearning and we really like how the school set up the camera in each classroom for the virtual students to see the teachers and classroom as if they are actually in the class, and will be an easy transition should Ethan wishes to go back to school, with the same teachers and friends. I know this is no easy task but you made it happen.
Special thanks to Ms. Auciello and Ms. Riolo for doing a great job making sure all the students are taken care of, it’s not easy coordinating between in-class students and online students but they make sure everyone receives proper attention and able to enjoy their learning, everyday, our son has been enjoying his school.
We really appreciate this and it’s things like this make us promote your school to other parents and friends. Well done!
Please feel free to pass this message on to the appropriate personnel I think everyone deserves a compliment for the accomplishment. Thank you.
Hi Mr. Vanderlugt,
Hope all is well. I am writing this note to provide some feedback on Ms. Fernandez. As you know, Braden is attending virtual learning and initially, I was apprehensive on how this will work given both mine and my husband’s work schedule. Since the start of the school, I’ve been able to observe Ms. Fernandez’s teaching style and I want to let you know she is doing an awesome job. I can appreciate how challenging it can be with having to manage the kids in the classroom and the remote kids simultaneously. This is not an easy job! She has the utmost patience! She also ensures every student understands the work assignments and participates.
I am very pleased with the progress thus far. Ms. Fernandez called yesterday morning to inform me that the school’s wifi was down; I had a chance to personally let her know how I feel and thought I share the same sentiments to recognize her for her efforts and exemplary teaching.
Thank you for your support!
Every parent wants the best for their child. They want to give them the tools they need to succeed in the world, to be the best they can be, and to be happy. As parents of two boys, we wanted to give them the best start in life we could. As with many parents, education is high on the list of priorities.
When our first child was one, we set out to find the best possible education facility. When we saw all the wonderful things that Town Centre offered and we knew right away that this was the environment we wanted our child to grown and learn in. He started when he was two and all his teachers took great pride in providing an atmosphere of care just as if he was their own. As he got older the teachers showed him how to learn independently in various gentle ways. Each year he has spent at Town Centre has been a great experience for my son as well as us. All the staff at the school are so easy to approach and they are very understanding of the needs of the children and the parents. My son is now in grade eight and he feels that Town Centre has taught him to be ready to face all the new challenges in his next stage of life and learning. He will be moving on the high school but he will always have the gift of knowledge that all the staff and teachers have given him.
Our second child is following closely in his footsteps and is now in grade five at Town Centre. He has shown such growth in his abilities. We are looking forward to the next few years. My husband and I feel we have definitely given both our children the best start in the very important developmental years of their life.
