Queenston Drive Public School is a kindergarten to grade 8 school located in The Woodlands area of Mississauga. We celebrate the diversity of the many different cultures from the community that we serve.
We are proud of all the many aspects of school life that are offered at Queenston Drive. We have a very, active music program that includes choirs, drumming groups, Orff instruments and band (for grades 6, 7 and 8). Our sports groups are extremely varied and include flag football, volleyball, badminton, basketball, cross country, soccer, softball and track and field. Intramurals span all three divisions from primary to intermediate and include volleyball, basketball, floor hockey, indoor soccer, scooter hockey and handball. We are also proud to offer a vibrant chess club that includes over 40 keen players from grades 2 to 8 and runs from November until the Peel board tournament at the end of April. Many awards have been received through the years at this tournament. Queenston Drive also offers many other varied clubs and activities.
A major focus in our school is on critical thinking. Staff are preparing our students to be 21st century learners where the development of strong thinking skills is of utmost importance. Professional development in this area has provided our teachers with the latest skills required to better prepare children for their future.
All staff members are involved in planning and implementing the different aspects that provide an inclusive, safe, caring environment. These includes assemblies, clubs that allow children to develop their interests and talents, extracurricular activities, leadership opportunities and much more. Our Peel character traits of caring, honesty, responsibility, respect, inclusion and cooperation form the basis of this program and for life here at the school.
