Arts and Athletics Package

We are very excited to be able to provide our students with arts and athletic enrichment opportunities this school year.  All students will enjoy several performances/initiatives that will come to the school for a nominal fee.  These performances support our Literacy, Numeracy, Modern Learning, Problem Solving and Growth Mindset foci and align with the Language, Arts and Heath/Phys. Ed. Ontario curriculum.  They include engaging motivational speakers, musical performances and hands-on skilled-based workshops.  This is a wonderful, cost effective opportunity for our students to participate in professional productions at our school at a reduced cost.  Thanks to group rate discounts and sponsorship by the school and school council, this comes to $25.00 per student for the year.
