Healthy lifestyles are promoted through Daily Physical Activity and a variety of intramural and sport teams. Health and fitness events (Zumba, cooking classes) ensure the whole family participates! The Toronto Foundation for Student Success and community partners support our breakfast, morning snack and lunchtime programs. We have pizza and sub lunches every month.
To support families new to the country, our Settlement Worker organizes meetings and workshops about many topics including EQAO, Income Tax, Fire Safety, and how to access community resources and agencies. The Settlement Worker also helps facilitate the WIN and Newcomer programs, which help new families familiarize themselves with the educational system.
