Message from Director 

On November 26 all school staff will be participating in the Keeping Safe: Child Protection Curriculum Training provided by QSI headquarters. This curriculum will be presented by a trainer from Baku. Teachers, from 3 YO’s through Secondary IV, will be teaching this curriculum beginning in January.  


Parents are invited to an introduction to the Keeping Safe program on January 11th from 9-10 am in the cafeteria. Mr. Martin and Mr. Teeter will be presenting. An overview of the entire program will be given, so all parents are invited.

On November 26, in addition to the Keeping Safe program all staff will review the staff Code of Conduct expected of every QSIT staff member in regard to how each person should be treated. Please note the Code of Conduct attached to the newsletter for parents. As we issue new ID cards (in January), each parent in our QSIT community will be required to sign this agreement. Please read the attached and let me know if you have any questions.

The world is a complicated place and while we do not want our students to be afraid, we do want them to be thoughtful of their decisions, understand what choices are available and how to make a good one. QSIT is doing all we can to educate students and clearly explain expectations to all those who work with them. All staff members must have background checks and references are required. We will continue to work with all agencies to ensure the safety of our entire community, we appreciate that you are all willing to work with us.

Live Yoga & bloom

My yoga practice will be more than general workouts. It will focus on recovering from physical injuries.
I have a different approach with each student and I enjoy learning what each student wants from yoga and how their body wants to move.
Yoga helps you live a healthy, joyful and happy life.
