COVID-19 Resilience Infrastructure Stream Funding Project
Our School has a COVID-19 Resilience Infrastructure Stream Funding Project.

John Fisher Junior Public School

Redirection of students from Whitney P.S. to John Fisher P.S.


There is currently a proposal for boundary changes to Whitney Junior Public School, Eglinton Junior Public School, and John Fisher Junior Public School. It is proposed that students from 101 Erskine Ave and 18 Erskine Ave who are currently attending school at Whitney P.S., be redirected back to John Fisher. Of note, Whitney P.S. does not have French Immersion classes, therefore the students who would be redirected in September 2023 to John Fisher would be attending JK and SK English stream only. 

The boundary change also includes the redirection of 6 residential towers from Whitney P.S. back to the Eglinton Jr PS. 

There will be a virtual Public Meeting on February 13th at 6:30 pm to further discuss this boundary change. As part of this process, parents/guardians/caregivers and community members will be able to provide feedback and ask questions at the public meeting. Please read more details here along with the Zoom meeting information

Program Accommodation Review

The second phase of the Yonge-Eglinton Program Area Review (PAR) took place in the Spring of 2021 to balance enrollment within local elementary schools in the Yonge-Eglinton area and includes the Bannockburn building to resolve ongoing accommodation pressures. Recommendations from that review were approved by the Board of Trustees on June 30, 2021.

There will not be any changes to registration during the 2021 2022 school year. Starting in September 2022, Junior Kindergarten students in the English stream can register at John Fisher to begin the process of gradually phasing in a dual track French Immersion/English stream.

For families moving from John Fisher to Bannockburn in September 2024, please see here for more information. 


Want to know the latest happenings at John Fisher?

We are an allergy aware zone.

There are a number of children at John Fisher who have life-threatening allergies to nuts that can be triggered by exposure to trace amounts of the allergen. The oil or smell from nuts can cause anaphylaxis in some individuals.

To minimize the risk of exposure at the school the following rules apply:

  • No nuts or foods containing nuts are to be brought into the school.
  • Children should not share their lunches or snacks.
  • For class events and/or cultural celebrations:

Only purchased food that is in the original wrapping and clearly labelled nut-free can be brought to the event.

Thank you for considering the safety of our children by adhering to these rules.
