Located in Port Credit, Mississauga, the high school (Grades 9 to 12) and intermediate (Grades 5 to 8) levels are housed at the Main Campus. An adjacent Primary Campus is home to the JK to Grade 4 students. Co-curricular trips to the school's Outdoor Education Centre in Muskoka enhance in-class learning in the upper grades.

Mentor College Charity Fashion Show

The 19th Annual Fashion Show was a tremendous success! Vissi D’Arte not only celebrated all facets of art, it was a collaboration of all the Mentor College/TEAM School students, parents and staff. The mission of this event is to provide our students with the opportunity to develop leadership skills by performing the tasks required to host a major, student-run, charitable event. These skills are enhanced through interaction with teachers, parents, community members, business people and peers within their school. Our student leaders and volunteers learn life lessons through the contribution of their time and talents and see the reward of their efforts by giving to a charity of their choice.

Congratulations to the senior head representatives; Julia Cappellacci, Iva Keran and Matthew Smith for their unparalleled leadership skills and to the entire student executive committee for their hard work and dedication to such a phenomenal and professional production.

Kudos to over 130 student models for their commitment and time, to the parent committee for their tireless efforts acquiring hundreds of donations for the live and silent auctions, to over 40 student volunteers for their support, and finally, to the staff from Primary, TEAM School, Intermediate and High School divisions who helped coordinate and execute such a large-scale event.

We would like to thank Keegan Johnson from The Foundation for Prader-Willi Research and Constanze Bleeker and Emily Clark from SickKids Foundation for attending the show and speaking on behalf of their organizations. The Fashion Show committee is pleased to announce that they raised an impressive $55,000; $35,000 will benefit SickKids Foundation and $20,000 will benefit the Foundation for Prader-Willi Research of Canada.

Celebration of Cultural Diversity

For two days in February, students from all divisions of Mentor and TEAM join together in one of the schools’ largest school-wide events: The Celebration of Cultural Diversity! The NS Gym at the Main Campus is transformed into a multicultural extravaganza – including music, dance, food, and celebration! Led by the students in the high school division, all students in the school partake in the event, either as performers, pavilion guides, executive members, or visitors.

The event started in 2004 with twelve countries sharing their cultures and traditions with students, teachers, and parents. In the following years, the show quickly gained popularity with students – so much that the 2014 show featured 44 pavilions – with three spectacular concerts taking place throughout the day.

As much as we would like to see even more students get involved, there doesn’t seem to any more space in the gyms for even one more pavilion!

Life At The Primary Campus!

Mentor College has developed a primary programme which builds on the enthusiasm and involvement which children feel when learning.

Students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 4 are immersed in a stimulating curriculum and provided with a wealth of support, and encouragement. Staff members foster the development of good work habits and a sense of responsibility which provide a solid foundation for the challenges that lie ahead.

Students in the Primary Division are challenged by Mentor’s curriculum, as it is more advanced than those in public, separate and most private school programmes. Homeroom teachers instruct in math, reading, grammar, spelling and social studies, and specialty teachers teach music, computers, science, French and physical education.

In addition to the curriculum, there are a host of school clubs, teams, and activities that students are welcome to join. The highlight of the school year occurs when the entire school puts on the year-end musical in June!

International Travel Experiences For HS Students

This past March Break saw three groups of students and teachers travel to three different parts of the world with three very aims and travel itineraries. The destinations of these trips were India, Nepal, and Europe. 

After living an amazing adventure, the students who travelled to India in support of Free the Children returned changed people. Everybody was touched by the hardships other human beings face daily in the struggle of survival, but the sadness felt at seeing these challenges was accompanied by a great feeling of satisfaction knowing that they were putting smiles on the faces of the children in a school in Bagad, Rajasthan. Everybody learned so much about the area, the lives and the culture of the people living there, as well as about themselves. Students returned with valuable new leadership skills and with a better appreciation and gratitude for their ways of life here.

Another group of students travelled to Nepal to help build a home for a family in Birtamode, Jhapa. Using sustainable local resources, the Mentor team worked at a vigorous pace for 6 full days, in an effort to complete the home. Tasks performed each day included measuring, cutting, splitting and weaving bamboo as well as mixing cement and plaster. Throughout the build, students also enjoyed meeting and interacting with local community members. The unforgettable experience came to an end with a memorable closing ceremony in which community leaders offered thanks and engaged our students in traditional ceremonial procedures.

Students on the Battlefields of Europe Tour made mife-long memories, too. The battlefields of World War I and II were the focus; Dieppe, Juno Beach, Vimy Ridge and Beaumont Hamel came to life from the stories and pictures of textbooks and lectures. A connection to wartime emotion was made as, unknown to students, parents wrote letters (the old fashioned way) of appreciation and pride in their sons and daughters. In a similar fashion to soldiers on the front lines, letters were handed out and many of our travelers were overcome with emotion hearing from their parents in such an ‘unusual’ manner. All of this led to an experience of a lifetime where history and the sacrifice of others allowed the students to appreciate their position and the lives that they have.

Intermediate Division: Amazing Outdoor Experience

Each year, our grade 5-8 students (and various high school students as well) have the opportunity to enjoy a four-day visit to our Outdoor Education Centre. Located on 135 acres of land near Gravenhurst, the property hosts a variety of habitats, including lakefront, field, stream, marshland, old growth forest and Canadian Shield. The cost of the trip is included in the annual tuition. Our hands-on approach allows learning through education and recreation. Educational activities include vegetation identification, animal habitat study, geology/soil study and meteorological graphing, while recreational opportunities include cross-country skiing, orienteering, canoeing, native games, winter survival, campfires and night hikes. A 5000-square foot cabin hosts up to 40 students, and is staffed by two full-time outdoor education teachers and a chef.
