Farewell to Vice Principal Doug Roch
Dear Selkirk Community,
It is a pleasure to announce on behalf of Doug Roch his new assignment as District Principal of Student Services for the Surrey School District, November 7th, 2016. The past four years has provided the Selkirk community with many wonderful experiences under his leadership. The parents, children and staff have made strong relationships with Doug and we will miss his enthusiasm, genuine care, and ongoing support.
The new vice principal of Selkirk Elementary is Mr. Vital Peeters who is currently vice principal at Jules Quesnel School. This will be his second vice principal appointment. He is a positive and strong leader, with dedication and care for his school community. Selkirk is very fortunate to have Vital join the community!
We send our best wishes to Doug as he embarks on his new career as District Principal. He will be an asset to the Surrey School District.

- PAC funds raised for the school: $36,521
Note: this includes the government grant of $15,375. This is also net of all fundraising expenses, so I think this is the more relevant number than the gross figure.
- PAC funds spent on the school: $37,239
Note: This excludes any “admin” type expenses, and does not include any fundraising expenses since those are reflected already in the “net funds raised” figure above.
