The historical significance of Westmount Community School is not lost on our students, or community. Come walk our century-old hardwood floors, slide your hand down our smoothly textured wooden hand rails, and you will immediately be transported to the warm, caring spirit that is Westmount. Take the time to mingle in any of our classrooms and you will readily recognize the connectedness of our programming to the specific needs of each child.
Westmount Community School is a Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 8 school that strives to nurture the development and growth of the whole child. After school programs, along with extra curricular activities and celebrations, supplement our academic programs to expand each child's particular experience, talents and interests. Parents and caregivers are invited to partner with staff on an exciting educational journey that ensures student success. Enter our Community Room, where the coffee is always on and the conversation meaningful and friendly. You will find parents working on special projects or engaged in book clubs or parent support groups.
You will notice other partnerships in play on any given day when you find Frontier College volunteers cooking with kids or providing homework and one-to-one tutoring support. You may meet a member of the Kiwanis Club advising and working with senior students on leadership and service initiatives. The Kinsmen Hockey League is a longstanding and coveted tradition at Westmount Community School as well as Learn To Sport Programs in basketball, volleyball, lacrosse and flag football (provided by the Saskatoon Sports Council). The support of our mentor company SaskTel -- is evident with some of our digital technology, and the sounds of music in the auditorium come to us from the dedicated volunteers of the Heart of the City piano program.
At Westmount, students become engaged in a unique math program that encourages them to understand math concepts, not just memorize them. Wander our primary hallways and classrooms and catch us in the act of small individualized reading groups. Climb to the third floor of our school for a feel of our creative side by taking a gander at the art room. We are a school with deep cultural roots. See our daily weaving of First Nations culture into the fabric of our school, including instruction in Cree Language & Culture.
We are thankful -- and honoured -- to work in a school with such a rich legacy and to continuously celebrate our culture of diversity woven together in unity. The spirit of community at Westmount is evident in the laughter and hugs we receive daily from our students and the words of thanks and appreciation our parent partners express. Come meet with us for a tour anytime and we will demonstrate how we care!
