Our School

Trillium Public School opened its doors in 1973, and has since been the hub of a diverse, energetic, and caring community.  We are passionate in our belief that each child can be successful given the time and support to be so.  It is our goal to partner with our parents in helping to raise positive and productive members of the community.

Located in southwest Kitchener, our FDK to Grade Six population currently feeds into Laurentian Public School.  At present, our student population is just over 220 students.

Our Students

Our students enjoy walking to school from Westmount Road in the west to Strasburg road in the east, and from Chandler Drive in the north to Block Line Road in the south.  Our students enjoy their involvement in a variety of leadership opportunities, lunch room helpers, office helpers, AV helpers, milk helpers, and pizza helpers.  Students have the opportunity to be part of various school teams and clubs.

Representing over 25 different cultures and languages, Trillium students represent a diverse and inclusive community.

Our Staff

Trillium Public School boasts a talented and committed team of teachers, paraprofessionals, and a support staff who give 100% to their students and families inside and outside of the classroom.  They are very committed to professional development, staff training, and parent communication.  They identify continuous professional development needs and opportunities and attend workshops that enhance our learning community.

Parents and Community

Our School Council is made up of a small group of devoted parents and school staff.  The School Council provides active leadership by partnering to organize events (Theme Days, Parent Meetings, Workshops) and fundraising activities.  This fundraising has been greatly appreciated, as it has allowed our students to have enhanced classroom resources, participate in field trips, and attend educational assemblies.  We would love to see more families involved in our School Council, and encourage you to come out to a meeting.  Meetings are held once each month.

Code of Conduct

At Trillium, we have the 3 Rs.  RESPECT, RESPONSIBILITY, and do the RIGHT THING. These are promoted to ensure a positive and productive learning environment for our students. This code is communicated to our families and we are working in partnerships throughout the school to set clear expectations and foster student willingness to work towards positive and proactive decisions.

School Improvement Plan and Initiatives

As a learning community, Trillium is focusing on Mathematics and wellness. Our staff attend regular Professional Development on these topics and we are concentrating our efforts on both Math and wellness in the classroom.

Last year our staff spent a lot of time researching, preparing and developing  a new framework for which we live, grow and learn by at Trillium. Later this fall our staff will be rolling this new framework out to students.
