Oakville, ON | Grades NS - 8 | Shortlist
The school is in a residential area that has parks and trails close by. The older grades begin their day with a daily walk. What a great way to start their day.
Clanmore is in such a beautiful location. The school building itself is an absolute gem. Its perfect architecture that has been added to the historic building was such an incredible environment to learn in. Not only was the school building magnificent, but the location and accessibility to nature was even better. With a forest walking trail less than 200 meters away, we had brisk walks nearly every day rain or shine. There is a soccer field and baseball diamond not much further than that, which i remember having gym class and taking lessons outside when the weather allowed it. There is a toboggan hill right across the street that you will find filled with students after any and every snow fall. The lake is also 5 minuets down the street, this is where we would take walking field trips to bird watch and have geography class by the lake side. Clanmore is located in such a fantastic spot, it was incredible to have an education that really took full advantage of this.
Clanmore is ideally situated in a bucolic setting with Joshua Creek nearby, Lake Ontario a short hike, a big park right across the street, and the most magnificent magnolia tree you will ever see. It is convenient for commuters from east, west and north (we drive in every day from Burlington in about 20 minutes). The kids regularly embark on expeditions through the bush and on almost any day you will see them gamboling about the rolling hills to the east of the campus.
