The Sister School designation represents a relationship between two schools, where students create a cultural exchange and increase global awareness.

Sister school programs have a significant positive effect on the global awareness and attitudes of students in both primary and secondary schools. Students are encouraged to look beyond their own world and understand the lives of other people in a genuine, meaningful way. Benefits to accrue from engaging in a sister school relationship are many and varied.

  • Intercultural understanding within the school community
  • Improved English skills
  • Increased global awareness
  • Opportunities to better understand Canada and Canadian culture
  • Personal development of the student e.g. leadership, maturity, independence
  • Improved ability of students to adjust to different situations
  • Opportunities for sharing pedagogies and engage in joint curriculum development
  • Opportunities for professional development among teachers
  • Opportunities for reciprocal travel
  • Enhancing the reputation of the school

At Fieldstone King’s College School, we are committed to building a student body that reflects the diversity of the modern global community. We have also expanded our international market to Mexico, Colombia, Japan and Korea to further diversify our international student community. We now have two sister schools in China and one in Mexico!

Toronto is a thrilling city in the midst of a beautiful and diverse Canadian landscape. Our school welcomes summer campers to discover all that this region has to offer.

Fieldstone Summer Camps offer unique opportunities for English language learning, new friendships, cultural immersion, and even the chance to feel like a part of a Canadian family. We offer carefully-chosen homestay experiences, outstanding ESL instruction, and exciting field trips in and around Toronto.

Toronto is a bustling metropolis that is renowned for its rich cultural heritage, stunning waterfront views, and friendly citizens. Students will be exposed to some of the highlights of the city including museums, cultural landmarks, and athletic events. Safety is a priority for our camps, and we make sure that students are fully supervised and that all their needs are met. Parents have peace of mind knowing their children are happy enjoying themselves under the guidance and careful supervision of well-trained, experienced staff members.

 

The goal of service learning at Fieldstone is to connect service projects to student learning and to put as much of the planning and execution as appropriate into the hands of the students. Ultimately, the goal is not just for good work to be done, but for the context of that work to be understood, appreciated and reflected upon by the students.

Whether it is our younger students who will soon be engaged in sewing stuffed hearts for cardiac-surgery patients at the Hospital for Sick Children or older members of the School Me to We club who will be raising awareness (and canned food) through such projects as Halloween for Hunger or the Vow of Silence, the participatory and experiential nature of these projects adds an essential layer of learning for our students.

The following represent just some of the organizations that Fieldstone students have supported over the last several years:

Fieldstone has thriving Theatre, Music and Visual Arts programmes.

Fieldstone Theatre produces annual plays and musicals for the enjoyment of the community. Past shows have included The Lion King, Guys and Dolls, and Annie. Fieldstone students are involved in every aspect of mounting a production- from designing sets to mastering the art of stage make-up. The stage crew similarly plays a vital role in overseeing the technical aspects of the production.

In 2012, Fieldstone began a partnership with Young People’s Theatre. As a YPT “member school,” Fieldstone has the privilege of receiving training from professional actors and directors in the YPT company. The partnership also allows Fieldstone students to attend a number of professional productions each year.

Music students may focus on Strings, Woodwinds, Brass, Percussion, and, in their senior years, can take part in a unique “Small Ensemble” course if they so choose. Our Music department showcases its talents in Winter and Spring concerts. Our student artists have won regional awards for their work and have the opportunity to experiment with a wide variety of artistic mediums. The annual Fieldstone “Arts Showcase” shares Fieldstone’s passion for the Arts with the broader school community.

 

Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Programme

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award empowers young people, ages 14 to 25, to make a difference in their own lives and the lives of others, by exploring their potential, taking on new challenges, giving back to their communities, and achieving success. It provides the opportunity to set goals and achieve results in fun and challenging ways.

At Fieldstone, every student is registered in the award programme and is actively working on his/her Bronze, Silver, or Gold level award. Through Fieldstone’s engaging and exciting co-curricular programmes, students work on the four components of the award: community service, skill-building, fitness, and adventure.

To learn more about this prestigious and enriching programme, please visit http://dukeofed.org/on

 

Part of achieving the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award involves students’ committing themselves to pursuing and achieving progress in a particular hobby or skill. We at Fieldstone see great value in promoting goal-setting, collaborative learning experiences, and whole-school student bonding. For these reasons, “Skill Groups” are an important and exciting element of learning at Fieldstone.

At the beginning of the school year, each student chooses from a wide array of skills to pursue. Monthly, students work with peers across the age ranges toward mastering their chosen skill.  This helps our students to be well-rounded young people, equipped with life-long skills that will help them to be the leaders of tomorrow.

This year’s skills groups include:

Public Speaking

Event Planning and Organization

Creative Writing

Improvisation

Bridge

Computer Programming

Knitting

3D Printing

Ukelele/Guitar

At Fieldstone, we believe strongly that students need the opportunity to learn in environments beyond the classroom. The school has developed a strong tradition of field trips to cultural and curriculum-related destinations. Beginning in 2001/2002, our students have had the opportunity to expand their personal horizons by taking a weeklong trip to various exciting and educational destinations.Horizons Week is designed to help students to meet the requirements of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award programme and to thus become more well-rounded, cultured, and caring citizens. The trips combine community service with adventure, physical activity, and team-building.

 

Trips Attended

Fieldtrip to the Toronto Reference Library
On November 7th, the grade 12 World History and Challenge and Change classes went to the Toronto Reference Library.  We learned a lot about university-level research!

trip-to-library

On November, 9, the Grade 10 and 11 Visual Art class, Grade 11 and Grade 12 Mandarin class, and the ESLDO and ESLEO class attended the Royal Ontario Museum.

The Visual Arts students went to the ROM (Royal Ontario Museum) to experience and photograph the Dale Chihuly artwork. The students enjoyed the breathtaking installation exhibit made up of sculptural blown glass.

The Mandarin students were asked to explore and investigate the artifacts in Asian and European galleries, to compare and contrast the similarities and differences of their cultural aspects. Students gave excellent presentations on comparing and contrasting the carriages in ancient China and Japan and Chinese sculptures in different dynasties.

The ESL students explored biodiversity at the museum. Students engaged further in topics related to our Environment and Wildlife Unit to reflect on animals affected by climate change, as well as endangered or extinct species. The purpose of this trip was reached as students now have personal knowledge and experience to offer during speaking evaluations in class regarding Environment and Wildlife.

Fieldtrip to ToonBox Entertainment
On Thursday, November 10th, the grade 11 Communications Technology students went on a fieldtrip to ToonBox Entertainment. This was an incredible opportunity to tour a professional animation studio. Students learned the step-by-step process of how a 3D animated, feature length, film is created. We learned about the various careers in this industry, the jobs of each professional, and the college courses necessary to enter this field.

September 15- Ontario University Fair

All Grade 11 and 12 students had the opportunity to learn more about Ontario universities through this always-engaging and informative showcase. Students spent the day investigating opportunities for post-secondary study and were able to speak with representatives from a wide variety of universities in order to best prepare for the application process. Following the trip, our students began to meet with our Guidance Department to receive individualized help and support preparing for postsecondary education.

October 8- Geography trip to Climate Change Conference at UofT

Students in the CGR4M Environment and Resource Management class and the Eco-club had an opportunity to attend the Climate Change and Health closing dialogue. The event was an amazing opportunity for students to see government and research stakeholders discuss pressing environmental concerns, experience firsthand an academic conference setting, and enrich their understanding of climatic change with cutting edge knowledge.

October 29- Grade 12 History research trip to Toronto Reference Library

Attending a workshop at the Toronto Reference Library allowed our History students to learn more about historical research and to explore one of Toronto’s foremost resources for academic inquiry. Students were inspired to revisit the library independently, allowing them to enrich their studies and diversify their research methods. This trip also helped the students to feel part of a flourishing research community. Ms. Misevski continued to provide individual support as each student continued his/her academic research following the trip.

November 3- DECA Regional Competition

Our students attended a competition to showcase their talents in Business and public speaking. At this DECA competition, one of our Business students finished in the top 40 students (of at least 150) in his category- Human Resources Management. As at all DECA events, the students enjoyed feeling like they were part of a tight-knit community of learners. In preparation for any DECA competition, our DECA teacher-leader meets individually with students to ensure that they feel comfortable and confident representing the school.

November 27- Grade 12 Math (all courses) trip to The Great Escape (customized escape room)

This trip allowed our senior Math students to apply their learning to an adventure in a customized escape room. Students enjoyed drawing on the concepts taught in classes in order to work as a team to solve the puzzles at hand. The trip built a sense of community amongst our keen Math students and provided exceptional (and fun!) academic enrichment.

December 3- Visual Arts trip to Toronto Animation Workshop

Ms. Gordon’s Grade 11 and 12 Visual Arts: Illustration class visited Toronto Animated Image Society for a 4 ½ hour Animation Workshop. Students enjoyed a tour of the studio, watched stop-motion short films, and participated in a stop-motion animation workshop. This was also an opportunity for them to learn about animation as a career path. Art students really bonded through this experience, and were given individual support as they reflected on their newfound appreciation for animation following the trip.

December 9- Science trip to the Aquarium

This excursion taught students valuable lessons about aquatic career opportunities, the impact of climate change on aquatic systems as well as various aquatic biological organisms and systems. Fieldstone’s Science department is committed to promoting academic rigour and enrichment and this trip further reminded students that applying their impressive Science knowledge could be fun and creative as well as practical.

December 10- English trip to Pandora, an issue-based play for teens at Young People’s Theatre

Attending this cutting-edge theatre production allowed Grade 11 and 12 English students to critically engage with their Media Studies unit and to view and reflect on a new work of Canadian theatre. The content of the play helped the students to further their understanding of media literacy, digital literacy, and appropriate media use. Each student was given individualized attention in unpacking and reflecting upon the complex themes in the play.

March 3- HSP4U and Student Success trip to Bata Shoe Museum and Kensington Market

Students in our Student Success Programme explored Toronto while reflecting on their studies in business, marketing, travel and tourism. The trip allowed cross-curricular investigation and also allowed many new students to Canada to better understand Toronto’s geography and flourishing tourist attractions. Stepping outside the school together for the day also helped students in our unique Student Success programme to bond as a community of learners.
