In 2016, EcoKids piloted Outdoor Play and Learning (OPAL) in six schools in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). First established in the United Kingdom, OPAL is recognized as a best practice for supporting school improvement through play – as cited in UK Government reports. OPAL was also winner of the Best European Active Schools programme in 2017. The program has grown to over 40 schools in three school boards in the GTA.

We currently support OPAL in K-8 schools in the Toronto District School Board and Shirley Street Public school is one of the OPAL schools.

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.
