The Windermere Community Schools Team is comprised of our Youth and Family Worker, Community Schools Coordinator, Programmers, and Program Leaders. Our team is based at Windermere Secondary in room 209 (WCP room) and room 124 (Oasis Room).
Our Family of Schools consists of Windermere Secondary, Graham Bruce Elementary, Collingwood Neighbourhood School, Sir Wilfred Grenfell Elementary, Nootka Elementary, John Norquay Elementary and Renfrew Elementary.
Working with Community Partner organizations, we provide out-of-school-time programs at Windermere Secondary and our feeder elementary schools.
Our Windermere Community Programs (WCP) are engaging, high quality, low barrier, inclusive and social and emotional learning based programs. Using a tri-mentorship approach, Windermere students volunteer to lead after school programs including cooking, literacy, music lessons, Fastbreak/Moresports, arts and crafts, and more. Our programs are staffed by trained and experienced Programmers and Program Leaders. These programs are offered each term (Fall, Winter, and Spring) for elementary students at their elementary school.
Furthermore, we run the Get R.E.A.L. (Resilient, Engaged, Active Leaders) program for targeted Windermere Secondary students.
The Breakfast Club is a before school drop-in breakfast program in the Oasis Room 124 on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Windermere students can visit our room to learn about volunteer and leadership opportunities in the school and community, find free snacks for students, and apples donated from the Adam's Apples Foundation.
