Wellesworth Junior School's Mission Statement

Wellesworth Junior School is located in a small, family-oriented community, west of Highway 427 and north of Rathburn Road. We serve about 180 students comprised of a variety of cultures. 30% of Wellesworth's students speak a home language other than English.
 
Wellesworth JS has three self-contained special education program classes. We provide students with significant blocks of time for the study of literacy and numeracy as well as the integration of other subjects. We welcome parents and community involvement. We are very proud of our annual community events. Wellesworth is a Student of the Month school, and all students are taught to adopt the TDSB Character Education attributes.


 

Platinum ECO School

Wellesworth is proud to have been one of  the few certified Platinum Eco Schools in TDSB. Our Eco Team, comprised of students, parents and staff, work together to promote ecologically responsible and sustainable attitudes and behaviour throughout our school community. Students actively monitor energy use, waste reduction, recycling, a walk to school program and litterless lunches. We have designed and implemented a comprehensive greening plan for our extensive school grounds which includes the planting of many trees, the installation of landscape rocks and the maintenance of our naturalization areas.
