Student Life - Where You Belong


Students have many opportunities to actively participate in all aspects of school life! From sewing, baking, chess, safety patrollers, peer mediators, steel pan, singing, art and eco clubs, to basketball, badminton and cricket, all of which are making a difference in the lives of others -- our students take action! This year students have participated in Me to We, DeeGee Girls, Junior Achievement, Dare To Dream, Go Girls and Game On.  Students hone their leadership skills through the leadership groups, a series of committees that focus on equity, school spirit, social justice and community partners, all led by our student Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Minister and Student Parliament. School life extends beyond the classroom including: Beyond 3:30: an after school  program involving sports, crafts, tutoring and cooking; Elective Days; the grade 7 overnight stay at Albion Hills and the annual grade 8 graduation excursions. Creative kids work on the yearbook to help record all the exciting happenings here at school. In addition, a school magazine entitled Imagine, is published showcasing  students' writing across the grades. 


We are a school with heart! We value character development and the values it instills in our students -- we not only learn it, we live it!  Based on the TDSB 10 Character Attributes we recognize the contributions of our Caring Canadians at monthly assemblies. The caring continues, as our students support and raise money for the Royal Canadian Legion, Terry Fox, Me to We, Sick Kids, the World Wildlife Fund as well as collect donations for local food banks. More recently, classes assembled 54 holiday gift boxes, and hats and mitts for needy local families at our local shelter. Annually we participate in Jump Rope (Grades 1-6) and Hoops For Heart (Grades 7-8).


Learning is a partnership -- when we work together, students succeed!
Our community partners include: Toronto Public Health, The George Hull Centre, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, Toronto Police Services, Toronto Parks and Recreation, Toronto Public Health, Humber College and York University Nursing Faculties, OISE,  Cobs Bakery, and the Toronto Real Estate Board.  Our School Council is an active contributor to our school community. They support programs and organize events including Family Movie Nights and Parent "Coffee Talk" sessions and other parent workshops. Parents assist in all aspects of school life as volunteers for field trips, in the classroom, the nutrition program and organizing fundraising activities.
