Student Life - Where You Belong

GO TEAM

At Woodbine Middle School, our diverse student population works together to support each other and the broader community.  Some examples of initiatives to support the wider community have include packing shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child, supporting neighbourhood Food banks, Me to We initiatives, and fundraising for various charities.  At Woodbine there is something for everyone. As a Woodbine Cobra, you can join one of our many sports teams, including rugby, ultimate Frisbee, cricket, baseball, basketball, volleyball, and softball.  We also have a vibrant arts culture.  You can participate in Hip Hop, drama presentations, guitar club, talent shows, musical performances, and arts trips to Stratford, the Toronto Symphony, and the AGO.  Each February the whole school participates in an Activity day which allows students to learn beyond the four walls of Woodbine.  Students have an opportunity to explore a wide range of cultural, scientific and sporting activities that expand the scope of regular academic curriculum.  Activity days are fun days for all. 

WHAT SETS US APART

Woodbine Middle School is a school where the nations meet. The diversity of our school population is one of the things which makes us strong.  Our students are very respectful of each other and work together for the success of all.  Our staff are committed to the well-being and success of all students, and are available to assist them in achieving their goals and dreams.  Being a "Uniform School" sets us apart from others in that our students are easily recognized and proudly wear the Woodbine uniform.  Parents appreciate the fact that their children are going to a school where their socio-economic level is not advertised by the clothes they wear.  Less decision making in the morning allows students to arrive on time, ready for the day ahead.

PARENT AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

At Woodbine Middle School, we have partnerships with: Oriole Community Centre; Junior Achievement Program; "Kids Now!"; Foundation For Student Success; Toronto Real Estate Board; Rugby Canada and community faith groups. We view members of the community and parents as key partners in supporting and enriching the learning of all students. Oriole Community Centre and the school will continue to create opportunities for student leadership and participation through the lunchtime programs.  S.E.P.T. Project (Settlement and Educational Partnership in Toronto) continues to provide on-site counselling and assistance for students and parents who are new to Canada. School and Community Partners - interpreters, pscyho-educational consultants, social workers and the public health department are available to counsel and support students needing assistance.
