William Whyte Community School is located in the inner-city of the North end of Winnipeg. The school has a population of 300 students. The majority of students are First Nations and Metis. During the last school year approximately 10 percent of students were new Canadians from other countries.
The school offers a regular program for students in Nursery to Grade 8 and one low enrolment LAC classroom for students in grade 2-4. Incorporated into everyday instruction is the utilization of Restorative Practices, physical education, computer technology, after school sports and cultural programming and music education for all students.
William Whyte School is a designated community school with two full-time community workers who assist in bridging the home-school connection. The school has a full functioning Community Room with activities offered to parents on a daily basis. Community meetings are held twice a year where members and organizations are invited to share resources, information and receive updates on the school’s progress.
William Whyte School is in its’ final year of a three year partnership with the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority. The business partnership allowed the school to offer a much more extensive program to students and provide opportunities they would not normally have due to limited finances. The volunteers provided by the WRHA gave much need support in the classroom and during special events. The Royal Bank of Canada was also a huge contributor during the last 4 years in providing supports for our after school cultural and sports program.
The elected Parent Council executives meet with parents on the third Monday of every month to offer support to the community and the school. Childcare is provided free of charge.
