Oakville, ON | Grades NS - 8 | Shortlist
Parents receive emails frequently updating them about different things that are happening at the school. Even advice on illness. The parent committee invited all parents to every meeting to participate.
The friends I made while at Clanmore are ones I still have and hold close to my heart today. I regularly connect with my classmates. Clanmore was like a second family and it will always have a very special place in my heart. Visiting feels like coming home.
Our kids have made what may well be lifelong friends. My eldest son has been at Clanmore with his brother from another mother since toddler. And we have made such dear friends while enjoying the Clanmore experience. I have served on the executive of the Parents' Association and frankly I wish more parents became actively involved. That said, although few in number our volunteers add so much to the life of the school it is at time mind boggling. Friends that we've made through Clanmore have supported us through some very challenging times and in particular a few of the teachers and the head have embraced us and our boys with profound kindness and generosity of spirit. The only reason I have given a rating of 10 is because I wish we could get more parents to help out the PA. Oh, one other thing, this community is the least snooty bunch of folks you'll ever meet and that, for me, is a brilliant bonus.
