We’re proud of our school and like to share our spirit.

School Spirit

Assemblies

Whole school assemblies take place Friday mornings. The purpose of these assemblies is to create a sense of
community and an opportunity for students to learn together and to share their leaning in an informal way. An important
element of our assemblies is also to have children learn appropriate audience manners. We strive to have the children
be quiet, attentive and appreciative listeners. If your child will be presenting at a Friday assembly, a note will be put in
the agenda.

Each assembly starts with the singing of our national anthem in both languages, the salute to the flag and ends with the
singing of our school song. At the end of this handbook we have included the words of the Salute to the Flag, O Canada
(English and French) and our school song so that everyone can learn the words and join in the singing.

Salute to the Flag

(With right hand held in salute over right eyebrow)
“I salute the flag, the emblem of my country, to Her, I pledge my love and loyalty.”

O Canada!

O Canada!
 Our home and native land
True patriot love in all of us command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!
From far and wide
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land glorious and free! 
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee. 
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
 O Canada!
Terre de nos aïeux,
Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux! 
Car ton bras sait porter l'épée
Il sait porter la croix! 
Ton histoire est une épopée ,
Des plus brillants exploits.
Et ta valeur, de foi trempée 
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.

Janet Johnstone School Song

Our school is not windows, concrete and steel.
It’s the people who are in it and the way that they feel.
It’s children and teachers and parents who,
Each makes a difference the whole year through.
By caring and sharing all those feelings
that together make our school one that is simply “Great”!
We help each other learn and grow.
We give our best each day, and so,
We’re proud of our school and its Red and Blue
JANET JOHNSTONE, We Love You
