Welcome to Naismith Memorial Public School- where we pride ourselves on the success and well-being of our students, staff and school community. We hope many of you are excited to start a new school year, full of many new and exciting opportunities!
This year we will all continue to grow and learn in a safe, caring and, positive learning environment, as we carry-on Dr. James Naismith's philosophy; Sound Body~Sound Mind. Here at Naismith we know the importance of a well-rounded educational experience, which is why we offer exciting learning opportunities for your children such as French immersion, a variety of sports teams, a great music program, high academic standards, and so much more. This is thanks to our strong and supportive staff here at Naismith as well as our parents and school community.
Our Facebook page is used regularly to keep parents informed of what is happening at Naismith. We understand and support the significance of parental involvement in the school community, so we hope this website and, Facebook page will be of value to you and your child's education. You can also follow us on Twitter, @naismithucdsb.
During the 2017/2018 school year we will continue our focus on our school improvement goals in literacy and numeracy. We want to help our students further grow their brains through supporting a growth mindset. In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment. Virtually all great people have had these qualities.
Teaching a growth mindset creates motivation and productivity in the worlds of business, education, and sports. It enhances relationships.
