gates

Hundreds of OLC and community members gathered for the official unveiling of the Memorial Gates in 1924 and a sneak peek of the Castle beyond the gates.

Much later in 1969, the School began opening its doors for open houses, which attracted many visitors from Whitby and surrounding areas. We are proud to continue this model of opening our doors for our open houses to offer prospective students and families the opportunity to see the classrooms in action, meet our faculty and students, and learn more about what it means to be a Trafalgar student.

If you have a daughter or know of anyone interested in a Trafalgar Castle School education, join us this Saturday, October 25 from 10 am to noon

LIKA – Leading in the Knowledge Age
LIKA – Leading in the Knowledge Age

In early October, students in grades 5-8 gathered in the Resource Centre to learn about a new component of their advisor program known as LIKA -Leading in the Knowledge Age.  With a focus on the encouragement of self-directed learning for students, LIKA offers a set of tools and abilities to help students deepen their skills and abilities for learning over time.

The cornerstone of this program is to build essential competencies in the areas of: work ethic, communication, independent and peer learning, teamwork and networking.   Trafalgar students will focus on one competency per month so that they are able to gain a full understanding of exactly what each one is, and how it is a foundation to learning at The Castle.  For example, October’s LIKA competency is work ethic. 

These competencies have also been identified as the essential skills for future leaders and tomorrow’s agents of change – exactly what every Trafalgar girl aims to be!  

For more information on this program, please contact Mrs. Christina Schindler, Director of Research.
