Bowmore School Council is doing a second order of the very popular Bowmore 100th Anniversary hoodies!

Orders can be placed online through School Cash Online ( until Thursday October 5th. Distribution is expected to be in late October. We will not be ordering extras this time so if you are interested, be sure to pre-order.

We will also be set up to take orders outside the office at the 100th Celebration and the Carnival. We will be accepting cash or cards. There is a small amount of inventory left from the spring which we will be selling at the table as well.

The hoodies are $36 and are available in Red and Black, Youth and Adult sizes.

Dear Bowmore families,

We are very excited to kick off the school year as a community at our Fall Fundraising Carnival taking place on Thursday, September 28th from 4-7 pm outside of the school. This year is extra special as we celebrate 100 years of Bowmore!

Please see below for event details and ways that YOU can get involved

Rain or shine, we hope you will join us for Food (BBQ, pizza, snacks, ice cream truck) and Fun (bouncy castles, rock wall climbing, face painting, henna, crafts and more) and the opportunity to connect with other Bowmore families.  

As a fundraiser, all activities and food stations will require tickets that will be sold onsite (cash and card accepted).  We encourage you to bring your refillable water bottles.  The school will be open to access water refill stations and restrooms. 

Similar to previous events, the carnival is 100% powered by volunteers.  Here's where YOU come in - it's not too late to get involved!! We are still in need of many volunteers just to make the evening happen. Here's how YOU can help:

Volunteer on-site at Carnival:

We still are looking for A LOT of volunteers on September 28th to help set up, sell tickets, run an activity, tear down and more. If you can commit to a 1 hour (or more!) volunteer shift between 2pm - 8pm it would make all the difference.Please reach out to with the following information:

  • Name
  • Contact phone 
  • Contact Email
  • The time(s) you are available to volunteer

*FYI Most shifts will start at 45 past the hour (for example 3:45 p.m.- 4:45 p.m.) 

Silent Auction Donations:

This year we are holding a silent auction at Carnival.  We already have some great items to bid but we could use a few more! Most needed items include:  

  • Lessons or services (i.e. classes, lessons, camps, rounds of golf, etc.)
  • Tickets or gift certificates (Taylor Swift tickets (kidding!), concert tickets, theatre tickets, sports events, etc.)
  • New toys, games, theme baskets (or something else great we haven't thought of!)

Please contact if you are able to donate. The deadline to submit Silent Auction Item donations is Sunday, September 24th.

Funds raised at the Carnival will go towards supporting school activities which enrich the student experience.   Some past examples include but aren't limited to, butterfly kits, school dances, scientists in the classroom and more! 

Dogs on School Property

We have noticed an increase in the number and frequency of dogs on school property this school year.

Please be aware that dogs are not permitted on TDSB property, even if they are on a leash. Please tie your dog somewhere outside the school perimeter if you must bring your dog with you when you accompany your children to school. Exceptions to this policy include service dogs supporting students or caregivers. Families with a service dog should speak with the school administration.

Although the adjacent field is part of Fairmount Park, Bowmore has a reciprocal agreement with the City of Toronto for exclusive use of most of the park during school hours. It is important to remember that City of Toronto by-laws do not allow for dogs to be off leash in City parks, except for in designated Dog Off-Leash Areas, operated and maintained by the City. You can read more about the City of Toronto by-laws regarding dogs in parks here. The closest Dog Off-Leash Areas to Bowmore are at Wildwood Crescent Playground (link) at 110 Wildwood Crescent, and Cassels Avenue Playground (link) at 69 Cassels Avenue.

The recent incident at a TDSB school, makes this message more timely. Our hope is that, with the support of all members of the community, we can make the school yard, and Fairmount Park, a safe and welcoming space for all local residents. Feel free to share this message with community members outside of the school community. We have been in touch with local City Councillor’s office about the issue, and will share this message with them as well.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this matter.
