Percy Williams Junior Public School's Mission Statement

Percy Williams Junior provides an exemplary, student-centered curriculum for our students and nurtures the personal, social and intellectual growth of each student. We strongly believe in balancing high expectations in academics with diverse opportunities and links to our community. The school opened in 1982, and is named after Percy Alfred Williams, a Canadian sprinter who won two gold medals at the Olympics in Amsterdam.

Each student is offered a quality educational program to meet individual needs, plus extra-curricular activities, school band, choirs, house league sports, various clubs and inter-school sports. Percy Williams Junior is committed to providing a safe, nurturing, inclusive and respectful environment .

Diverse Opportunities

At Percy Williams, there are opportunities which serve to enhance student learning.  These opportunities include out-of-classroom excursions, presentations at the school, interest clubs, and special school events.  The purpose of offering such a range of opportunities allows a child to find activities which complement his or her learning and to discover new interests and strengths.

We strive to develop a high degree of pride in our school.  Through our student achievements, caring staff, supportive parents, and partners throughout the community, we proudly showcase our pride through displays, assemblies and videos.  We focus on continuous improvement in learning, safety, opportunities, and parent and community outreach.  One example is our morning Kiss and Drop which allows parents to drop off their children in front of the school with improved safety for students and drivers.
