Welcome to the new updated Port Rowan Public School website. We are finally up and running!
Port Rowan is a medium sized public school situated close to Long Point in the South West corner of the Grand Erie District School Board. We are a K-8 school and we offer support for special needs students as well as those students who require ESL support. At the present time we have 307 students enrolled.
As an educational institution our main aim is to produce students who are well versed in literacy and numeracy skills. As well, the school staff offers many intramural and team programs. We have teams for volleyball, basketball, soccer, badminton and cross-country, to name a few.
We have a great playground with two sets of playground equipment along with swings for children to use to exercise large muscles. As well, each classroom has a container with balls, skipping ropes and frisbees available to take out and use.
We welcome parents to come and visit anytime or to call the school to speak to the staff on any matter of concern.
At Port Rowan, each student will have the opportunity to acquire the skills, knowledge and attitudes to become productive, fulfilled members of society. Any student behaviour which hinders the academic, social, emotional and physical development of any other student will be addressed.
Unacceptable behaviour will not be tolerated under any circumstances and whenever observed will be immediately reported. This includes the following 4 categories:
We encourage students to develop responsible behaviour and self-esteem through good decision-making skills with the ultimate goal of self-discipline. All actions have implications for self and for others; therefore the use of natural and logical consequences is an encouraging way to teach accountability, trust, honesty, and respect. Such consequences might include: (not necessarily in this order)
Riding the bus is a privilege not a right.
REMEMBER: The safety of all is our primary concern.
