Tredway Woodsworth Public School's Mission Statement

William Tredway and JS Woodsworth combined in 2015 to become Tredway Woodsworth Public School.

At Tredway Woodwsworth, we are dedicated to participation, effort and achievement.

In partnership with our Tredway Woodsworth families and community we deliver challenging scholastic and full co-curricular programs, in a caring, safe, equitable and respectful environment.

School Focus

We are continuing to improve and increase our Literacy and Numeracy resources and programs.  We are accomplishing this through staff professional development and ensuring supporting resources are in the classrooms.  The staff continues to analyze the data from a variety of resources available to us, which helps us drive our instruction and assessment strategies to improve student performance and learning within our school.

Student Life - Where You Belong


While supporting students to achieve their academic potential is our primary focus, students also have a multitude of opportunities to participate in extra-curricular and leadership opportunities. Our Athletic program provides extensive extra-curricular and house league programs. In the fall we have cross country and baseball, followed by basketball and volleyball in the winter and soccer and cricket in the spring. Our Performing Arts program consists of Junior and Senior bands and our dance club which culminates with our school musical performance and a talnet show that showcases our student's talents in the spring. The Eco Club is consistently actively recycling, supporting lunchtime greenbin programs, composting and raising student and staff awareness on a number of other issues. We offer numerous leadership opportunities for our junior students including safety patrol, prefects, office helpers, morning announcements and distribution of pizza lunches. Students fundraise in the fall for the Canadian Cancer Society through the Terry Fox Run, and in the spring for the Heart and Stroke Foundation through Jump Rope for Heart.


Tredway Woodsworth is a dual track French Immersion/ English school split about 40/60. We strive on the progress made by our students and help support them with speciality teachers in Music, Drama/Dance Phys. Ed., Computers and Library.  We are also very proud of our Eco School's Platinum status and we are working diligently to maintain this within the TDSB.  Our Eco Club has pushed for more trees in our school yard, litterless lunches and a greater conservation of energy school-wide. 


We have a number of teacher candidates from various University's Faculty of Education pre-service program.  Through a close connection with Toronto Fire Services, holiday food drives support local food banks. We have had an on-going connection with Cedarbrae Library, which is part of Toronto Public Libraries, that has supported our school's focus on Literacy through the organization of classroom visits for all children, and presentations to our community at various school functions. Various local businesses and organizations support our school through the donation of products and services for annual fundraisers and other community social services like e.g.Tropicana.
