Principal's Message
Welcome to Whitchurch Highlands Public School! We are a small school in a rural area of York Region, surrounded by nature. Our 250 students all travel to and from school by bus resulting in a large number of school buses servicing our students daily. We have very supportive parent community who are involved in many activities - School Council, volunteers in the classrooms, support for academic learning, and supervisors for field trips, just to name a few. Our students are respectful and hard-working. They enjoy their time at school, interacting with peers, joining clubs and teams, and developing their skills as digital learners. Thanks to the fundraising efforts of our parents, we are fortunate to have a wide range of technology for students and teachers to use, enhancing the learning opportunities each day. 

Each month, we celebrate Character Traits at our Sharing Assemblies. Students are recognized for demonstrating good character, perfect monthly attendance, Honour​ Roll, participation on sports teams and clubs, and more. Students show great appreciation for each other and take pleasure in everyone's accomplishments.

Safety and well-being are the priorities every day! Students are well-versed in procedures for safety through regular drills and discussions. We work closely with our Community Police Officer and Fire Department Staff to ensure the safety of everyone at school. As well, we provide education for the students and community on social media use so that they are learning to be safe and aware while online. 

The staff at WHPS is a dedicated, cohesive group of educators who know all the children in the school, and who work together to ensure that the children's needs are addressed. The environment of WHPS is a warm and inviting one. We welcome you to our school! 
​​Mr. B. Derry
