Our school places an emphasis on learning through the arts. Each year we work closely with our school council to bring in artists and experts to teach our students the approved curriculum through exploring art.
Our school vision is to create confident, caring, creative and contributing people: our responsibility, our opportunity and our legacy. Our School Motto is "Making a World of Difference" and is vividly illustrated on our outside school mural painted by nationally-recognized mural artist and former AFS parent, Doug Driediger.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Kindergarten registration will look different this year. We are asking families to complete the registration and submit the information electronically. Please follow the steps outlined below:
