An enriched environment
Our enriched curriculum includes a variety of activities designed to enlighten as well as intrigue the young minds and bodies of our students. At Wheatley, we realize the importance in creating a rich, diverse learning environment in which children have the opportunity to explore a broad range of interests.
Elementary students participate in activities outside of the school, including horseback riding, tennis, gymnastics, ice skating and rock climbing. Grades 5 to 8 students may participate in golf and skiing.
Scheduled throughout the school year are field trips to the theatre, art galleries and museums which support the curriculum and enrich learning. Upper Elementary trips go a step further, with overnight stays.
Our elementary students have an opportunity to play in House League during the lunch hour. For upper elementary students seeking a higher level of competition, a variety of inter school teams are organized after school hours. Wheatley has received the Quality Daily Physical Education Recognition Award from the Canadian Association of Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance.
Beginning in Grade 1, students are divided into tribes. Each Tribe is made up of students from Grades 1 to 8. Tribes create school pride and spirit, a sense of community and a bond among students. Beginning in Grade 1, students may become members of the choir.
Private piano lessons during school hours and after-school religion classes (Roman Catholic) are also available to interested students.
My children attended Wheatley for eleven years where they received outstanding academics and wonderful social skills.
