Learning Today...Leading Tomorrow
Built in 1987, Dundonald School is named after a castle in Scotland. A new addition to the school was later constructed in 1999. The majority of the student body is made up of students from the Dundonald and Hampton Village Communities. In the fall of 2007 students and families from Hampton Village became part of the Dundonald school community. The school features 25 classrooms for students from K to 8, individual art, science, music, computer and Functional Life Skills (FLS) rooms, a full-sized gymnasium with stage, a multi-purpose room, and a central learning resource centre.
The staff offer students an opportunity to develop their potential in a broad range of high quality programs. Programs include kindergarten, computer education, core French, out-of-school education, Grade 8 home economics and industrial arts, band, music, fine arts, family life education, character education, and healthy lifestyle education along with the core subjects of the Ministry of Education.
At Dundonald we strive to achieve an atmosphere of safety, caring and respect. Our teachers and staff are truly concerned about each student's individual development. We will do everything possible to ensure a safe, healthy and very productive learning experience. We believe in the concept of Learning Community and as such are committed to utilizing the strengths and knowledge of all stakeholders.
In addition to professional teaching and administrative staff, school psychologists, social workers, speech therapists, program consultants, teacher librarians, teacher associates, office personnel, library technicians, caretaking staff, and lunch supervisors will be available to help students as required.
Dundonald School is characterized by soft, warm colours, natural light throughout and an open atmosphere created by the use of glass and mirror. The circular floor plan places the classroom in close proximity to the Learning Resource Centre. High technological features have been built in to assist with classroom instruction, communication with central office, record keeping and plant operations.
