I am thrilled to be the Principal of The Waterfront School! We have amazing students at our school and we have the most beautiful location for a school; right on the shores of Lake Ontario with incredible lake views from many of our classrooms. We are a small school of 240 students and we have a rich and diverse community who are great partners in our students' learning. We have created a learning environment with high expectations for all students both academically and socially, and together we celebrate student achievement and success!

We are creating our Community of Gratitude at The Waterfront School.
We have been given the duty to live in balance and harmony with each other and all living things. Each day we need to show gratitude for the opportunity to learn at our school and show gratitude to the students and staff at The Waterfront School. We have learned about reciprocity and responding to a positive action with another positive action.
We honour National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.
At The Waterfront School we joined together as a school and with our community to listen, to learn and to centre the lived experiences of Indigenous Nations and people. Every Child Matters! At The Waterfront School, each day we need to show that we remember this.
Thank you Waterfront Families so much for continuing to support our annual food drive. This year we collected a large amount of donations at our Winter Concert. These were donated to the Fort York Food Bank. Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity!
With your generosity we were able to send a donations to The Daily Bread Food Bank for $670! We are so happy to work together to make a difference. Thank you!

Master Chef 14 TPS Champions!
Students from our school were very fortunate to participate in the Master Chef 14 TPS program. Junior/Intermediate students partnered with Officers at the Loblaw’s cooking school throughout the year to cook delicious meals. In each session the meal they prepared was judged by a panel of judges. For the finalé, our students were invited to cook in the George Brown Cooking School kitchen with professional chefs. Thank you to Officer Gribbon, for helping to give Waterfront students this opportunity to become great chefs! Our students were thrilled to win the final competition this year and are proudly displaying the trophy at our school which reminds us of many happy cooking memories.
