Being a globally-minded school definitely has its advantages.
Nothing broadens the horizons like seeing what’s beyond the horizon. So Branksome Hall, in addition to our sister school on Jeju Island, South Korea, has cultivated several international relationships. They provide the opportunity for travel and service trips abroad. From Junior School to Grade 12, our students have the chance to travel to Costa Rica or South Africa.
In Queenstown, South Africa, we are partnered with Rose Avenue Public School in the Get Ahead Project. Together, students from the two schools work to increase cultural understanding and friendship. A service trip to Matapallo, Costa Rica, gives students the chance to live with local families and learn about their customs and culture.
Global Leaders: Toronto-Waterloo
We wish to acknowledge this land on which Branksome operates. For thousands of years, it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous peoples from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work and go to school on this land.
