Welcome to Garden Avenue Junior Public School!  

We are a vibrant and caring school community for students in Kindergarten through Grade Six.  At Garden, we value each and every student. As a staff, we strive to provide the best experience for out students as well as a caring, safe, nurturing, positive and respectful learning environment. 

Even though we are a smaller school, we have a wide variety of extra-curricular activities for our students to participate in, such as: Cross Country running; Track and Field; Floor Hockey; Book Club; Ukulele Club; Knitting Club; Lego Club; Science Fair Club; and Newspaper Club.  We recognize the importance of building connections outside the classroom, and this is reflected in our commitment to extra activities during lunch, recesses, and before/after school.

We also provide opportunities for our students to engage in mindfulness and self-reflection, such as during our daily Mindful Activity, and our weekly Peaceful Recess Project in the Library, because we believe in nurturing the health and well-being of our students at school.

Please follow us on twitter @GardenAvePS for exciting news and events.
