Model Schools Initiative
The fundamental underpinning of the Model Schools initiative is that it is essential to support both students and their families within the context of their school community. Funding is given to provide opportunities for families which would not be available to them otherwise. For instance through this initiative many parents and their children went to the zoo, Ontario Place and the Science Centre. For some families, this was their visit to these places. Focus is placed on supporting the unique needs of students in inner city neighbourhoods to achieve fairness and equity and foster an inclusive culture.
Parent and Family Literacy Centre
At Flemington Public School we have a very active Parent Literacy centre in the school building. Parents and children attend sessions regular and interact positively to build a strong relationship and develop basic literacy skills.
Arts for Children
Artists from Arts for Children offer workshops about painting, drawing, printmaking and sculpture. Students are very enthusiastic about expressing themselves in various mediums and excitedly share the actistic creations they have desigmed.
Toronto Schools on the Move
Flemington is a Toronto School on the Move (TSM). The goal of TSM is to build a healthy, active, school environment. Staff and students plan and implement ongoing physical activity outside during lunch, which helps to create a positive environment in the playground. Junior students act as Playground Activity Leaders in the School (PALS) to enhance their leadership skills.
Inclusive Schools Initiative
As an inclusive school we strive to ensure all feel safe and welcome within our school community and foster a climate of respect and acceptance. Students are exposed to culturally relevant curriculum and encouraged to develop effective critical thinking skills. Children see themselves reflected in the curriculum and resources utilized in the classroom and school. Read more about Inclusive Schools Initiative
