Our Mission Statement

We believe that literacy and numeracy are essential to academic success and we plan our programs to concentrate on these areas.

We are committed to the philosophy of "Students First".

We believe that students must be healthy physically and emotionally in order to maximize their learning.

Extra Curricular Activities

This year we have revamped our extracurricular format.  We will focus on servicing a greater number of children and a wider variety of grades.  Therefore, some of the sports that have historically been “interschool” (competitions at outside locations); will now function in a House League format.  It is our goal to have more activities that will be available for a significantly larger number of students.

At the beginning of the year, you received a Physical Education and Intramural information /Permission Form.  This form acknowledges that you give your child permission to participate in extracurricular and intramural (at school) activities.

Our House League system will award points for participation and attendance in a wide variety of activities.  In this way, all children will be able to contribute equally to the House League point tally.

Please note that we will specify our start date shortly.

If you have already signed this form, you have given permission for your child to participate. Thank you
