Message from the Headmaster

To those parents who are returning their sons to Robert Land Academy I thank you for your confidence and trust. We look forward to working with both you and your son again as we continue to assist him in reaching his potential.

To those parents who are new to Robert Land Academy I look forward to meeting you and want to reassure you that although it was undoubtedly a difficult decision for you to enrol your son at Robert Land Academy, I believe you will one day reflect on this decision and wish that you had made it earlier. We will work as a Team: you as parents, your son, and the entire staff of Robert Land Academy to effect positive change. This won’t happen overnight but I am confident that you will see gradual change over the course of the next year.

Remember…anything worth having, is worth working for.

R.D. (Ryan) Smid MMM, MB, CD
Lieutenant-Colonel (Retired)
