The event featured a wide variety of art displays from OCAD University's Graduate students. Richview students had the opportunity to freely visit the entire University grounds which included the Sharp Centre of Design while enjoying the sunny day at Butterfield Park. An educational, creative and fun time was had by all who attended.

Rythyms Festival in Montreal

On April 26th, 37 students and 3 chaperones travelled to Montreal to attend the Rhythms Festival. The students and teachers had a great time! We toured McGill, attended an amazing performance by the Montreal Symphonic Orchestra at the Place des Arts, toured the Fine Arts Museum, the Pointe-à-Callière Museum, the Aura show at Notre Dame Basilica (unbelievable!), did some bowling (Mrs. O’Brien beat everyone!), did some shopping, attended the Dream Circus, ate dinner and danced at the Sucrerie de la Montagne (Sugar Shack), and performed at the Rhythms Festival or the first time in 4 years! We walked over 17000 steps each day, ate LOTS of food, from burger to steak, and came home completely exhausted 😊 .

Best Buddies

On Friday March 24th, after school when everyone was heading home, the Best Buddies Club along with the Music Council headed to Central Etobicoke High School for a special music get together with approximately 18 buddies. Most of these students have physical and mental challenges and their pairing with our students for special activities is always exciting. After a brief tour of the school, students rotated through sessions with Karaoke, bucket drumming and Latin American percussion instruments. To finish the evening there were delicious homemade cookies and pizza! Thanks to Mrs. Bourgeois, Mrs. O’Brien and Mark Nicolson from Central Etobicoke for a rewarding experience. It is always a blessing to give of yourself to promote the happiness of others!

Muskoka Woods Leadership Camp a Huge Success!

Message from our Principal, Ms. Kletke.

Our leadership camp at Muskoka Woods was outstanding with meaningful and impactful community building activities through arts and crafts, indoor and outdoor athletics, dances, games, group dynamics and so much more. There were many discussions, conversations and debriefs amongst the students throughout the week.

We commend our amazing Senior Students who are extraordinary leaders. Thank you to our TAs, Counsellors and Cabin Leads for mentoring our Grade 9 students throughout the week. This mentorship will continue throughout the year! I know you are exhausted, but we are so proud of your accomplishments. Our Grade 9s will benefit by your leadership and by the skills they developed to break down walls and build community. Way to go Richview students!! The incredible work of our media team can viewed in the video above. Mille mercis.

A trip of this magnitude requires the organization and hard work of many staff members. I am extremely grateful for their commitment to ensure that this camp continued, following three years in which it could not take place. Thank you to our Main Leader, Mr. Dipchand who led our team. Thank you to Mr. Koumoutseas, Ms. Haden-Reeves, Mr. Mehic, Mr. Colbert, Mr. Dhamo, Ms. Szoke, Mr. Giroux, Mr. Johnstone, Ms. Fralick, Mr. Montgomery, Ms. Janetos, Ms. Rathuge and Ms. Bennett.

Food Drive for the Daily Bread Food Bank!

Students at Richview have organized a food drive to collect non-perishable food items and raise funds for the Daily Bread Food Bank in Etobicoke. Over the past year, there has been a significant increase in food insecurity across Toronto due to inflation, a rising cost of living and incomes not keeping pace. 2022 will see more than 2 million food bank visits in Toronto. Food is a basic human right and our community needs our help. Collection bins are located outside of the main office.

Please consider donating non-perishable items by December 19, 2022. Alternatively, you may wish to make an online donation directly to the Daily Bread. $10 donations will automatically receive a tax receipt.

Click HERE to donate online.

Thank you for your continued support and generosity.
