Leadership Recognition


At Trillium Elementary School, student leaders have ample opportunities to contribute to every area of school life. The day begins with student announcers assisting with the daily announcements. Their voices inform and remind everyone of the numerous educational and extra‐curricular events planned for students. Many sports teams have had a successful season and their successes have been measured by personal best performances, as well as Board banners. Innumerable sports teams, the EARs environmental action club, senior band, choirs, and craft and games clubs creatively occupy the time of our students. The contribution to community has included visits to a home for senior citizens and active participation in fundraisers last year that supported the Terry Fox Foundation and the Heart and Stroke Foundation. The students are inspired to give their time and energy because they are interested in being active members of the school community. The recognition of their successes have been ongoing in our classrooms, school announcements, newsletters, our assorted assemblies and end of the year ceremonies. We build decision‐making skills into many of the leadership activities in the school.


Our staff members have a wealth of professional qualifications including Bachelors and Masters degrees in Arts, Fine Arts, Physical Education and Sciences, as well as additional qualifications in Special Education, French as a Second Language, Music, Visual Arts, Guidance, and Computers in Education. Our educational assistants and administrative/support staff have also pursued additional training to meet the ongoing changes in our school. Staff has actively participated in numerous Board wide professional development activities in Literacy and Numeracy. Several staff members have presented to the OCDSB in the area of literacy, numeracy, and system leadership. We readily support their participation in pursuing training and professional development in keeping current with new information, technology and strategies. We also recognize staff leadership via personal interactions with one another, letters of thanks, school announcements, school newsletters, assemblies, performances, performance appraisals, and our Principal’s and Vice‐Principal’s reports to School Council.


Each year, our parents contribute innumerable hours in the school. They assist as classroom helpers, library volunteers, hot lunch team, support people on class field trips, Book Fairs, drivers to curricular and extracurricular outings, and School Council representatives. As partners their contributions have directly impacted students. We thank our parents, guardians, and volunteers on an on‐going basis and look for opportunities to acknowledge them such as school announcements, our Principal’s report to School Council, school newsletters, and our annual volunteer appreciation event held in the late Spring of the academic year.


The Trillium School Age Program is located on our site. Together, we work towards a seamless transition for our students at the daycare. We have created partnerships with some of our local businesses at various times during the last several years. Trillium has established a partnership with Viscount Alexander (adopt a school program) and activities will include opportunities for interaction and relationship‐ building with all students. We recognize our community partners through school announcements, school newsletters, the Principal and Vice‐Principal’s reports to School Council and letters of thanks.
