We have many more events planned for this year that we hope you can be a part of.

Our next event is the Spring Social Fundraiser on the evening of Thursday May 11th at the Crooked Cue in Etobicoke. We hope to renew old acquaintances and begin raising funds and awareness of our upcoming events. Attached, you will find more information about the evening itself, please contact us if you are interested in purchasing tickets. We would be delighted to see you there!

Newton's Grove celebrates Earth Day!

Newton's Grove recently celebrated Earth Day with a number of engaging and reflective activities that make us consider how we're are treating the Earth that gives us so much. 

We are developing global citizens who reflect on their own behaviours and appreciate the world around them. Have a look at the pictures to see how some of our youngest spent the day.

Exceptionally talented musicians at Newton's Grove!

Newton's Grove School would like to congratulate one of our talented musicians, Emily. Emily recently performed at the 2017 Toronto Kiwanis Festival and she was absolutely outstanding. In fact, Emily was awarded the Walter Sinclair Memorial Scholarship for her exceptional performance. 

Newton's Grove is cultivating excellence in academics, athletics and the arts in every student as they define what success looks like for them.

Enhancing theoretical knowledge in the classroom through hans-on learning opportunities

Newton’s Grove fundamentally believes in making education accessible to all learners and this means utilzing combinations of collaborative, theoretical and hands-on learning for the solidification of complex tasks and concepts. 

Here, our grade 7 students are using triple beam balances during investigations of masses for both solids and liquids in support of theories discussed.
