In 2016, EcoKids piloted Outdoor Play and Learning (OPAL) in six schools in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). First established in the United Kingdom, the OPAL program focuses on the use of loose parts to engage students in collaborate and creative play outdoors. The OPAL rules that students use to guide their play are, "Is it safe enough? Is everyone having fun? Is it inclusive?" We encourage our students to think about these questions as they're playing in order to ensure safety and inclusion.

Eco-Friendly School

At Shirley Street P.S. we practise Eco-friendly habits in the execution of our daily activities.  Embedded into our class routines and lessons is the focus and importance of protecting and supporting our environment.  Staff and students take on the everyday responsibilities of maintaining a clean school and reducing our energy use to a minimum.  We separate waste, paper, plastic, tin and compost in an effort to reduce our overall waste output as a school.
