South Perth Centennial Public School Home


Welcome to South Perth Centennial Public School which is nestled in the Township of Perth South near St. Marys, Ontario. At our school, we bring together the very best of rural education and community values. Learning is
strengthened by the work of dedicated staff and parents who work together to help students master basic skills in reading, writing, and mathematics in a context that promotes 21st century learning skills.

South Perth has:
a computer lab;
a large gym for extracurricular sports and activities;
dedicated special education, Music and French classrooms;
no portable classrooms.

All our classrooms have:
sound field systems.
Character Education is fostered through:
Tribes Learning Communities;
Daily Character Attribute message during morning announcements;
Special assemblies are held to award student success and recognize teams
and clubs.

We also promote inclusion through:
classroom instruction;
special activities such as: The Peace Tree; Me to We/Power of We; and The Terry Fox Run.

Healthy Living is promoted through:
Huron-Perth Health Unit partnerships;
the Eat and Learn healthy snack program.
Our playground, situated on over 10 acres, incorporates:
a nature area (arboretum);
a beautiful swing set;
active playground equipment;

basketball hoops; and
tarmac games.

As mentioned earlier, the key to student success at South Perth Centennial rests with the involvement of our parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and community members in our school life. To top it off, student engagement is enhanced by many special activities subsidized by the Foundation for Education, and our fabulous School Council. My sincere thanks goes out to all people who are involved in any way to make South Perth such a great place to learn and grow!
