The school location is excellent, in the heart of Streetsville. The location is central and anywhere you live in Mississauga will be within a 20 minute drive from the school. There are many different things in the school area such as a library, a community centre and public swimming pool and skating rink, and a church. Moreover, Streetsville is a very dynamic place with many shops. In the summer time, the school will take the children to the local library for visits. In the winter time, they also go to the skating rink to skate. There are also other activities that the school will have that involves walking around this interesting neighborhood. This is all done with teacher supervision and we feel it adds a good dimension to the student experience.
Guiding Light Academy is located in Streetsville, Mississauga. Streetsville is a smaller community within the larger city of Mississauga. The students of Guiding Light Academy are taught a sense of community through their participation in the food drive for the local food bank, in their participation in Remembrance Day Celebrations conducted by the Canadian Legion in the downtown square. The children are also encouraged to discover their community by being taken to the local library by foot, and by being taken to daily mass at the nearby Catholic church, St. Joseph. All these activities and others really instill in my children a sense of familiarity, belonging and community for the neighborhood and community surrounding their school.
