History of Our School

Roland Michener Secondary School was named after Canada’s 20th Governor General, His Excellency the Right Honorable Roland Michener. He was a man of many talents and interests who excelled as a scholar, athlete and politician. As Governor General of Canada, he inspired Canadians of all ages to strive for academic excellence, work to improve their communities, and live healthy, active lives. With his commitment to excellence, Roland Michener showed that he lived by our school’s motto, Sors Tua in Manibus Tuis, Latin for “Your Destiny is in Your Hands”.
