Our public school, and the community we live in, is inclusive, engaged, and proactive. Let’s unite to give all our kids a better environment for learning and play.

Let’s build the Fern Playground together!

About The School Council

Fern Avenue P.S. School Council, a not-for-profit organization, is a collective of parents who work to support and enhance student learning at Fern Avenue P.S.

What we do:

  • Provide a forum for parents to advocate on behalf of students
  • Facilitate communication between parents and school administration
  • Advise school administration (e.g. arts emphasis, technology purchases, grade 7 & 8 lunch, TDSB Classroom Allocation Process)
  • Fundraise to provide “enhancements”

We Need Your Support to Revitalize the Fern Playground

Why A New Playground?

The current schoolyard has major drainage issues, damaged hardscaping, limited and outdated playground equipment, minimal shade coverage and windbreaks, and insufficient seating and other points of interest. The playground enhancement project will give Primary students more opportunities for free play and sensory activities. For the Juniors, there will be more room to perform and explore. And for the Seniors, there will be more room to shoot hoops and eat, and more reasons to stay at school during lunch!

What will your donations buy?

  • A new natural play structure
  • An outdoor “kitchen” play area
  • An outdoor performance shed and stage area
  • An outdoor classroom
  • New trees
  • New four-square courts
  • New basketball court
  • Picnic tables
  • Landscaping improvements
