Principal's Message

On behalf of the staff and students, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our school website. We hope you find the information helpful.
  
Sydenham offers a wide variety of learning opportunities for all students, through a safe and caring learning environment. The school places a strong emphasis on student success through a variety of pathways (world of work, apprenticeship, college, university), as well as focusing on building character in all students. There are many extracurricular activities available to students. Our "Live Well" (Work, Exercise, Love and Learn) initiative was launch last year and provides multiple opportunities for staff and students to be physically active, to learn about the importance of physical activity and nutrition, and to engage in activities that promote both mental and physical wellness.  

Sydenham High School’s motto is “Spirit, Heritage and Success.” Our spirit evolves from the tremendous enthusiasm generated from students and staff. Heritage is the tradition of excellence in academics, as well as a positive learning environment where students are encouraged to take controlled risks. Success is directly connected to dedication, hard work and effort that students and staff contribute to classroom and extra-curricular activities.

I look forward to meeting and working with all students, School Council, parents, and members of the community as we continue to foster excellence in academics, athletics and the arts at SHS.

Your Partner in Education,
Brent Pickering
