WELCOME TO ROLAND MICHENER
HOME of the REBELS!
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”.
Roland Michener has a rich history of spirit and tradition. There is a place and a person for everyone here. We encourage you to get involved in school like and make some memories to last a lifetime. Remember that a healthy life is a balanced life—your studies, social life, and physical health all need to be nurtured in order for you to become the person you were meant to be. And remember most of all that although your school, family, and friends provide you with valuable support, in the end only you can achieve your life goals—“Your Destiny is in Your Hands.”
