School Uniform and Code of Conduct
Eastern students are required to wear a uniform top. All of the uniform tops are sold directly at the school, and come in the school's colours: red, black or white. The Code of Conduct speaks to our core value of providing a learning environment that is safe, caring, nurturing, positive and respectful.
Late Start and Universal Breakfast
ECCI is the TDSB's only Late Start school which is scientifically supported to provide an optimum accommodation for the sleep and study needs particularly required by teenagers. Complimenting this is the breakfast program: each day all students receive a rotating menu of 3 nutritious food groups at no cost to the students. Combined, Eastern students are better rested, better nourished, and more ready than ever to perform at their very best.
Student Leadership Programs
In keeping with the school's motto "go forth to serve," leadership is developed at all grade levels. The Student Senate supports programs for school-wide enrichment; the Eastern Ambassadors are developed to represent the school in various community functions; and, the Future Leaders is a mentorship program facilitating the growth of junior students.
