Warm Greetings from HSC

October was a wonderful month. We had unusually warm weather for this time of year in Canada, and we enjoyed exciting successes in all aspects of College life–athletics, academics, arts and more. October was especially wonderful due to the opportunity our Global Studies Coordinator, Michelle, had to travel into China to meet with various prospective students and agents.

We hope you enjoy some of the following highlights from the month!


International Admissions Process at HSC

Do you know a student who is interested in applying to Hillfield Strathallan College? Below is an outline of our application process.

HSC Visits China

HSC’s Global Studies Coordinator, Michelle, travelled into China to meet with various prospective students and agents. She was welcomed by current HSC families as well as families looking to join the HSC community through the International Student Program. We are always grateful to have the opportunity to meet prospective students face to face, so we thank all of those who stopped by for a discussion with Michelle!


Athletes Compete in Two CAIS National Soccer Tournaments in One Month! 

The U13 Boys’ Soccer Team travelled to Glenlyon Norfolk School in Victoria, British Columbia to compete in the CAIS National Soccer Tournament, giving them an awesome opportunity to see the west coast of Canada and play against soccer teams from all over the country.

Back in the first week of October, HSC had the privilege of hosting CAIS schools from across Canada for the U15 Girls’ National Soccer tournament. The HSC team made it to the semi-final round and had strong support from other HSC students, staff and parents who were spectators at the games on campus. Congratulations girls!


Welcoming New Parents to the HSC Community

On October 12, we welcomed all new parents to the HSC community to have dinner on campus, giving them an opportunity to connect with HSC staff, faculty and other new families. While parents were mingling, their children were enjoying pizza and a movie night with HSC staff in the Montessori School, making it a fun evening for the entire family!


The Kenyan Boys’ Choir Sings at HSC

HSC students had an exciting new experience listening to the Kenyan Boys’ Choir perform! It was an energizing and motivating way to start off the day at school. The choir is an African traditional and contemporary male voice choir based in the city of Nairobi, Kenya and takes part in the annual WE Day event in Toronto.


HSC Students Participate in a France Exchange

The HSC Canada-France Exchange Program is celebrating its 25th year! There were 28 students enhancing the atmosphere at the College this October from Nantes, France (on the border of Brittany). The Grade 8 and 9 students began corresponding with each other a year before meeting in Hamilton. They had a once-in-a-lifetime experience of staying with the HSC families and participating in a wide variety of Canadian activities, in addition to attending classes.  HSC’s students, accompanied by four teachers, will travel to France in March. Merci pour 25 années incroyables!


Experience HSC at College-Wide Open Houses

The best way to experience all that our community has to offer is to join us at a College-Wide Open House! The next one will take place on Wednesday, November 1, 2017. We will open our campus from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. and again from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tour the College, meet our dedicated faculty, and learn about our programming from Montessori Toddler and Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12. For more information, or to RSVP, please e-mail admissions@hsc.on.ca or call 1-905-389-1367.
