It is with great pride that we welcome you to the "Home of the Marauders!" Walter Murray's colours are Blue and Grey, and we wear these with great pride and a strong sense of tradition. Our school community is noted for its excellence in academics, athletics, fine arts, and technology. Historically, Murray has amassed a long list of accomplishments in many areas -- in debate, mathematics, fine arts, science, and sports just to name a few. The Marauder Family is well known for its achievements, sense of pride, respect for self and others, and incredible hospitality.
Our staff believes strongly in Walter Murray's Code of Conduct created jointly with the student body a short time ago: "The staff and students of Walter Murray Collegiate are committed to a school environment that promotes a sense of safety, belonging, and equality where mutual respect and the pursuit of higher learning are integral components of our learning community." The common language used in our Code of Conduct focuses on treating each person with dignity and respect. At Walter Murray, honouring diversity is a central component of our learning community. Most importantly, we work toward reaching our full potential and helping those around us do the same. We create capacity for student leadership in our classrooms and through our extracurricular programming. We encourage students to assume leadership roles that move us toward positive change -- change that we hope is going to benefit our students, staff, and the entire community. And many significant changes have been made. We are delighted with our students' contributions and respect for this consultation process.
To truly become a part of Walter Murray and feel "Marauder Spirit", it is important to get involved. From Fine Arts to Athletics to Human Rights to a French Exchange, there is something here for everyone. Challenge yourself to become a leader or a part of a club, team, or organization that may test your skills or peak your interest. At Walter Murray, students are encouraged to open doors, offer solutions and ask questions. Most importantly, students are urged to give themselves opportunities to focus some energy, and reap the rewards, for their involvement.
