PARENT TESTIMONIALS

What's Happening at WHA

Wellington Hall Academy - Guelph, Ontario

Wellington Hall is a vibrant private elementary school, registered and approved for operation by the the Ministry of Education of Ontario. We are a member of the Ontario Federation of Independent Schools. We opened our doors in 1995 with the idea that a small school can create big opportunities for children. Small class size and a devotion to individual attention to student needs result in a warm, enjoyable learning experience for students in grades pre-kindergarten through eight. The classwork covers a broad academic curriculum as well as music, drama, the arts, French as a second language, and physical education. Our students benefit from a very low student-to-teacher ratio, and for over 20 years Wellington Hall families have enjoyed the rewards of progressive education in a warm, personal environment. Our Classroom – Our school community has members from many different walks of life and the immersion we provide students enables our students to see values in others and themselves. Our academic program pushes our students to achieve levels that they never thought were possible. We also teach more than just academics at WHA; we teach new ways of thinking and approaching problems. Our small school provides much opportunity for learning to work with others and to develop leadership skills. Our Playground – An important aspect of our educational philosophy is engagement – both mental and physical. Our students are encouraged to play, self-discover, and explore their interests; they develop a strong desire to challenge themselves. This foundation combines to foster a love of learning and a contagious pursuit that has our students excited to come to school. And we know that movement and time in the outdoors is essential to good physical and mental health. Students have two recesses per day and two gym periods per week on the beautiful grounds of Ignatius Jesuit Centre.

Field trips definitely aren't the same this year. But at least our kindies could cuddle up in their blankets for this virtual field trip to visit some veterinarians.

Mrs. G had so many pets joining in on Zoom that she put them through a rigorous application process. These adorable pets are now officially Gentoo Penguins, thanks to the creative writing skills of their human friends.
