Celebrating Our Successes

Yesterday, SOLE celebrated our Semester 2 Honour’s Tea, which recognizes students on the Honour Roll (80% or higher average) at midterms and students who have made outstanding contributions to the school community. We’re so proud of all of you, and wish you the best for Term 2!

SOLE Open House

Yay! What a fantastic Open House! Last night,  we showcased our program, facilities, and vibrant school community. Visitors commented on the friendly environment and warm reception. Food, activities and even green screen demonstrations were part of the event.

Thank you so much to all of our student volunteers! We also want to say goodbye to our York Teacher candidates, Miles, Dana, and Dragos, and our Community Worker-In-Training, Sam, who made such a positive impact on SOLE. They are always welcome here!
