Welcome to the 2021-22 school year at Branksome Hall!
I hope you have all enjoyed a well-deserved summer break and are eager for the year ahead. If you are a new Branksome family, you’ve likely been anticipating the start of the school year for some time. Rest assured, you made the right decision in choosing Branksome Hall.
Exciting days lie ahead for our new and returning students and parents as you explore all we have to offer. The entire Branksome community is looking forward to helping you navigate your first few days and weeks on campus, and we welcome the opportunity to answer any questions you may have.
This handbook is a resource I know both new and returning families will find helpful and informative. Here, you will learn about our day-to-day routines, policies, procedures and expectations, as well as information on how you’ll receive important news and updates throughout the year.
Please take the time to review this information carefully as some of it may be new or different for this year. As we receive further information from Toronto Public Health and the Ministry of Education, we may need to update the information contained in these pages. Do not hesitate to reach out to our skilled teachers and administrators—or to me directly—at any time with questions and feedback that may arise. Our school team is here to help, and our doors (and email inboxes!) are always open, all year long.
As I begin my 24th year as Branksome’s Principal, I remain certain of the school’s place among the world’s very best. Through a supportive and leading-edge learning environment that intentionally integrates wellness, outstanding academics and global engagement opportunities, and an approach that embraces innovation, collaboration and creativity, we cultivate transformational leaders who give back to their local and global communities. What an exciting time to be a part of this vibrant school community, and I look forward to a dynamic and enjoyable year ahead and to connecting with you soon at school events and activities.
