School Life

Rose Ave. learners are engaged, responsible and demonstrate a commitment to the environment. Daily academic activities are enhanced with field trips to educational destinations. 

We have a nutrition program that provides a healthy breakfast, morning meal and hot lunch for all students every day. The arts have an important place here at Rose. We have an extensive music program, with student choirs, African drums, strings, and band offered. As well, students are involved in the Touch the Sky arts initiative and partnerships with YPT, the National Ballet, and Hammer Band. 

We have a wonderfully stocked library, which our student librarians help to maintain. Our Indigo grant will allow us to purchase additional resources for our class libraries, levelled readers, and multi-language materials. We participate in our Silver Rose Reading Programme every year to motivate and support our student readers. Every Tuesday after school over 350 students participate in our after school International Languages Programme. 

We are proud of our Eco-Schools work and are an Eco Platinum school. All classes have compost bins, recycling bins, and re-using paper bins. 


Rose Avenue also offers a wide variety of extracurricular activities. These include activities in the arts, athletics, curricular enhancement, leadership development, equity, mentoring, tutoring, as well as specialized programs like English as a Second Language.
