INTER-SCHOOL EVENTS IGNITE ACHIEVEMENT
It’s hard to place an exact value on certain moments: the exhilaration of singing on the Roy Thomson Hall stage with hundreds of students from other CIS Ontario school choirs, after months of preparation; pitching an idea for an “app” that would solve a real-world problem to a panel of tech experts; or the life-altering elation of riding the team-bus back to school after winning the football final on the home team’s turf?
Such is the value of CIS Ontario program delivery in the realm of athletics, music, technology, drama, dance, visual arts and more. We supplement and enrich the independent-school educational experience with a range of opportunities for students to connect, learn and excel at their passions.
I marvel at how our enthusiastically our students engage with learning, each other and the world around them while participating in our student programs. There’s nothing else like it in Canada.
