Welcome to an exciting new year of learning at Colonel Irvine School with vibrant Regular, Mandarin and Traditional Learning Centre programs

Spirit Week

On Oct 31st, students may come to school in either school colours or costumes. No weapons and students’ faces must be visible. Costumes should be modest and not suggestive. This shows respect for the community. We will be having a variety of activities in the afternoon. A dance is being offered to grade 5 and 6 students from 12-1 pm and 1-3 for the grade 7-9's. There is a $1 fee for the noon hour dance and $2 for the 7-9's. All proceeds from the dance will be split between a local and international charity.

SPIRIT WEEK Oct 31-November 4!

  • Monday—Costume Day (wear your Halloween costume, or school colours)
  • Tuesday—PJ Day (yes, you may wear your pajamas to school!)
  • Wednesday—Sport Day (athletic wear)
  • Thursday—Twin/Triplet Day (match your outfit with friends)

Important Dates

November 2, 2016
Take Our Kids to Work™ is the signature program of The Learning Partnership, a national charitable organization dedicated to supporting, promoting and advancing public education in Canada. Now in its 22nd year, Take Our Kids to Work annually involves more than 250,000 students in a day of career exploration and learning about the skills required in the world of work. More than 75,000 businesses and organizations also participate. On Wednesday, November 2, 2016, Grade 9 students across Canada will spend the day at the workplace of a parent, relative, friend or volunteer host.

For students, it’s more than just a fun day. It’s an opportunity to:

  • Understand the importance of staying in school by seeing first-hand the skills required in today’s workplace.
  • Start exploring career options in a practical way and gaining a better understanding of just how many career choices are open to them.
  • Experience a day in the world of work and begin thinking about the kind of job they might aspire to.

For parents, it’s an opportunity to prepare children for the future by:

  • Participating in a shared experience with their child.
  • Enriching their child’s experience with career discussions before, during, and after the workplace visit.

What if it is not possible to go to work with a parent? Parents invite their own children to join them at work for the day, but if this is not possible, there are other ways for your child to participate:

  • Ask a relative, neighbour or family friend to take your child to work
  • Ask a parent who is taking his or her child to work if your son or daughter can join them for the day.

Our grade 9 students take part in this opportunity every year. Please call your child’s absence in to school and it will be marked excused. Should your child not attend a workplace, regular school will take place.
