The Mission of Our School 
In order to support the Board's mission, the mission of Silver Stream P.S. is a place where people of all ages work and grow together, experience the joy of learning, and develop the skills, attitudes and knowledge necessary to be life-long learners, informed decision makers, and contributing members of society.
At Silver Stream Public School, we envision our school as being dynamic, purposeful, and inviting, where the learning of our students is our primary focus.
The following beliefs guide and sustain our Mission and Vision:

  • that individuals learn and work best in an environment that is caring, challenging, and safe;

  • that all individuals should be encouraged and supported to develop their potential through a variety of learning opportunities;
  • that the unique contributions and achievements of individuals should be fostered and recognized;

  • that individuals should be encouraged to assume responsibilities and be accountable for their actions;

  • that our policies, practices, and procedures should reflect equitable opportunities for all;

  • that cooperative partnerships among students, staff, trustees, parents, community and government enhance purposeful working relationships;

  • that classroom practices should encourage students to be active/interactive learners who are self-motivated, self-directed problem solvers;

  • that our students should acquire the basic knowledge and skills necessary to comprehend and express ideas through words, numbers, and symbols;

  • that our programs should promote a commitment to life-long learning, physical well-being, a sense of worth, and an appreciation for the Arts and Sciences;
