Welcome Back!

After a restful and rejuvenating holiday season, the month of January kicked into high gear with athletic tournaments, a student-led World Issues Conference, preparations for Grade 4 and 8 students transitioning into Grades 5 and 9, a CH Morning Live taping, and Middle School trips to Discovery Harbour and Sainte-Marie among the Hurons. We hope you enjoy some of these invitations and stories below.


Experience HSC at the Upcoming College-Wide Open House

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, February 7. 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.


You’re Invited! Social Networking Safety Parent Night

Parents of students in Grades 7 – 12 are invited to join us for a very special Parent Night. Paul Davis brings over 25 years of IT knowledge and expertise to his speaking engagements. He has presented to thousands of students in Grades 4 through 12 across North America, and will now be making his debut at HSC. Please click here to visit his website.

The event will take place on Tuesday, February 6 at 7:00 p.m. in the Virtue-Fitzgerald Centre for the Arts on HSC’s campus. We hope you can make it!


CH Morning Live Visits HSC

On January 16, CH Morning Live’s Tim Bolen visited HSC’s campus to learn more about some of the unique features of the educational experience at the College. Tim learned about leadership opportunities at HSC from our student ambassadors and Prefects, Project-Based Learning from our Grade 2 students, athletics from our senior rugby and wrestling teams, and our House system from Montessori students.

Alumni Reunite and Face-Off in Community Hockey Tournament

Another record-setting Alumni Reunion filled the Coach and Lantern Pub with past HSC graduates before the holidays. Following the reunion, the annual Community Hockey Tournament brought back students, staff, parents, faculty, and alumni of all ages to face off against each other in a fun competition.


HSC Playground Project Wins Prestigious Award

Bienenstock Natural Playgrounds, led by alumni Jill ’84 and Adam Bienenstock ’84, was presented with the Award of Excellence for Design at the 2017 Landscape Ontario Awards. The Playground Project at HSC incorporates three toddler and preschool areas, a courtyard and a revamping of the Middle and Senior School blacktops. The project brings together ideas, themes and materials influenced by input from HSC students, faculty and staff. Preview the photos at this link to see some of the many structures that will be part of the new playgrounds.


Grade 8 Students Host a World Issues Conference

The Grade 8 students at HSC hosted 120 visiting students for the World Issues Conference on January 19. The conference brought together students to discuss issues such as equality, education, and environmental problems. After being introduced to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, the group enjoyed a day that included an inspirational speaker, collaboration and brainstorming among a diverse group of students, and sharing of original “slam” poetry. Our Grade 8 students also displayed projects related to the UN Goals—an extremely thought-provoking addition to the hallways at HSC for students, parents and staff to admire.
