Principal’s Message

Ms. Diane Smillie – Principal

My name is Diane Smillie and I am delighted to be appointed the new Principal of Langley Senior Secondary.  I have had a long history working in the Langley School District with previous administrative experience as a vice principal at Brookswood Secondary, Yorkson Creek Middle School and principal of DW Poppy Secondary School.

It is a privilege to join the Thunderbird learning community and continue to build on the school’s culture of learning through meaningful relationships, connectedness and an environment of care.   Furthermore, it is our belief that everyone can be successful and deserve a quality of education that helps to prepare for life following high school.

Langley Secondary School takes pride in understanding each students’ story and working closely to support each child.  The learning community demonstrates its success with an exceptional graduating rate, theatre, athletics and a commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. Work continues in acknowledging Truth and Reconciliation and valuing First Peoples Principles throughout our lessons.   Our strengths are all different, and our differences are our greatest strengths.

Our hope is that all students recognize their strengths, find a place of belonging and be the best they can be.  To all the students: “May all that be possible, be possible for you.”
