Leadership Recognition

Churchill Alternative students take an active part in community outreach with our choirs and fundraising activities such as Terry Fox Run, UNICEF, the Snowsuit Fund, Red Cross Relief, Jump Rope for Heart and the Education Foundation. We recognize student leadership in all grades, by incorporating their suggestions into the planning of many of our activities. Students actively participate in organizing ‘sharings’, participate in the ‘lunch room monitor’ program and assist in organizing the school pizza and sub lunches. In keeping to our philosophy, students are recognized as leaders and mentors in the school and community as a collective body and not independently.
Churchill Alternative School staff are energetic, empathetic, motivated, dedicated and knowledgeable. They lead with conviction and share a common vision in their commitment to our students and our community. 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, English as a Second Language, Music, French, Visual Arts, Guidance, and Computers in Education. They have actively participated in numerous Board-wide professional development activities in literacy and numeracy, and we recognize their initiative by providing and supporting opportunities for further professional growth. The Churchill staff have built and established valued relationships with each other, with the Churchill families, and within the broader Churchill community.
"If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader." - John Quincy Adams
Every year, our volunteers contribute many hours of their valuable time to benefit the students in our school. They help organize our milk orders, pizza and sub orders and assist with special events such as plays, drumming performances, the School of Rock concerts, and many other events. CASC, our school council meets on a monthly basis and contributes money to support various activities throughout the year. A few examples are: school productions, the replacement of our sports jerseys, back to nature classroom and updates for the library. As invaluable partners, we thank our parents, guardians and volunteers on an on-going basis as well as acknowledging them at our annual volunteer appreciation event.
Our community supports our many fundraising activities by contributing goods for the silent auction, attending our annual Holiday Craft Sale and our annual plant sale. Some of our community schools come in to share plays and band performances with our students. We have a wonderful woman who has been volunteering daily for years to run the milk program as well as taking care of the lost and found for us.
