Halloweek had fun activities both at school and at home for students to participate in. At school, students participated in Minute To Win It competitions, the Great Halloween Hunt, Witch Broom Pumpkin Race, the Which Witch is Which? guessing contest, and pumpkin carving. At home, students were encouraged to submit a spooky short story and show off their pet costumes or their home decorations. It was a week filled with fun to get students excited for Halloween!

We acknowledge with gratitude the Ancestral lands upon which our main campus is situated. These lands are the Ancestral territories of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, Anishinabek and the Wendake. The shared responsibility of this land is honoured in the Dish with One Spoon Treaty and as settlers, we strive to care for the land, the waters, and all creatures in the spirit of peace. We are responsible for respecting and supporting the enduring presence of all First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples. When away from this campus we vow to be respectful to the land by protecting and honouring it. We will create relationships with the people and the land we may visit by understanding the territories we enter and the nations who inhabit them.
