Irwin Memorial Public School



Principal message

Dear Parents, Students and Irwin Community,

Although we have had an excellent season for skiing and snowshoeing at Irwin, staff and students alike are ready to put away the winter equipment and dig out the skipping ropes. Regardless of what the weather does, Irwin is moving into spring mode as we plan the various activities that occur during the last stint of the school year.

The official date for Earth Day is April 22 but we will have to gage where our spring thaw is at prior to selecting a day for our annual clean-up. We will keep people posted. In the meantime, a small group of junior students will be travelling with Mrs. Brown to Camp Wanikkita on April 23rd to participate in an Earth Day Summit with schools from across the Trillium board of education.

In the meantime, our entire group of grade six students will be representing Irwin Memorial at the Jack Bionda Arena on April 8th for a half day of training presented by the “Right To Play”. These students will be key participants in our “Today We Play” Day, Thursday May 8, 2014. If you are interested in learning more about the “Right to Play” in schools, please check out the following web link:

Our luncheon for Irwin Friends and Volunteers is fast approaching on April 16th from 12:30 – 2:00. If you have not received your invitation, please double-check in your child’s school bag and/or call the school. We look forward to this opportunity to enjoy lunch with you and to thank you for all of your contributions.

Hopefully, the weather will warm up soon and we will be able to enjoy our yard and playground as the month progresses. Enjoy the upcoming season!

Poverty Survey

Poverty Survey

As a member of the group studying the issue of poverty in TLDSB, I would ask that you take a moment to complete the survey accessed through the link below. Our group would like your input to identify best practices currently in place to assist students (including ways that families are able to self-identify as financially fragile), help us better understand the issues surrounding students who are affected by poverty, and what kind of items/ events we ask students to contribute towards. Poverty is a concern that every school within our board must address and we are looking forward to hearing how students are currently being supported. Thanks for taking the time to answer the 10 questions on the survey and we will be sure to share the results with everyone. Our committee is meeting on April 9th and would like to begin analyzing the results. Please complete the survey by Friday, April 4th.

Thanks again,

The Poverty Working Group
