No Child Without: Free MedicAlert for students

In our ongoing effort to provide safe and caring schools for our students, FR Haythorne is once again participating in the Canadian MedicAlert Foundation’s No Child Without program.


Mission Statement

As evidenced in the excellence of our educational programming, the varied extra curricular experiences afforded our students, and the richness of our daily interactions with each member of our school community, it is our commitment...

  • To build a climate of respect and honesty in which individuals feel valued and supported in their efforts to achieve academic and personal success.
  • To balance opportunity and experience, in recognition of the importance of developing the whole person.
  • To strengthen the personal integrity of each individual by encouraging a commitment to the pursuit of his/her personal best.
