120th Celebration

Thanks to SNAP for all of these memories of our dance.


Sun Protection

Summer has finally arrived, the sun is shining and it is very hot. Swansea is not air conditioned but we do try to keep the classrooms as cool as possible. Over the next few weeks there will be field trips and walking excursions where students are outside in the sun.  Please help us keep your children safe by providing a sun hat, sun screen (this should also be applied prior to coming to school) and water bottle for hydration.


This is a link about the dangers of sunburn – it has a powerful message so you may want to view it first before you share it with your child.

Grade 8 Graduation

Further information on the graduation reception and dance will be sent out in a separate email at the end of the week.

Milk Bags

Swansea Pool

The City of Toronto is looking for your input on its recreational programs and services (including school pools). The current leasing agreement between the City of Toronto and the Toronto District School Board’s 33 pools will expire December 31, 2011. As school pools offer both valuable recreational programs and aquatic instruction for our students, is it imperative that the City hear from you!

Please plan to attend the following public consultation meeting to let City of Toronto staff know how important our TDSB pools are to you and your family! Toronto/East York – June 9, 2011 – 7 p.m. at Wellesley CC (Gym), 495 Sherbourne St. (Sherbourne St. and Wellesley St. E.)

As space is limited, be sure to register at or 416-338-6608. For more information see
