    Bullying - Online Reporting Tool

    Online Reporting Tool to promote a positive school community, this Reporting Tool has been created so students who become aware of bullying incidents and other negative behaviours that impact the school environment can report them.

    When you fill out this form, you are not required to provide your name or any other information that identifies you. If the information is provided anonymously, it may be dealt with in a general way, as there may be no means to respond specifically if limited information is provided. Depending on the type of information you provide, you may be identifiable.

    In some cases, if you are identifiable based on the information provided, the school principal/vice-principal may approach you to provide more information on a confidential basis. If you choose to identify yourself in the reporting process, the principal and/or vice-principal may follow up directly with you.

    School Begins at 8:17 a.m.

    Students should arrive at school ten minutes before school begins.
    Welcome back to all our students and an especially warm welcome to the brand new grade 9's.

    All our students are expected to be in full and proper uniform every day at school. This includes being in the halls, library, and cafeteria. Students who do not comply with the school uniform policy will receive appropriate consequences.
    Please note: the last day that students can wear the optional "summer uniform" is Friday, October 11th. All students must be in their rugby shirt after Thanksgiving.

    Uniform items may be purchased through R.J.McCarthy located at 44 West Drive in Brampton. For more details go to
