Ontario has released an updated Health and Physical Education curriculum to give students accurate information that will help keep them safe and healthy.
The province is also providing parents with resources to help them understand and participate in what will be taught to their children.
The tangible ways that board graduates exemplify the quality and excellence of the educational programs at KPR, and are Shaping the World we live in, are highlighted in this year’s Director’s Annual Report
“Across our country, and across the globe, our graduates are leaders in their fields. They are enriching and even transforming their communities and creating a better future for us all,” says W.R. (Rusty) Hick, Director of Education. See more...
KPR is dedicated to supporting the mental health of our students and staff, and to removing the stigma associated with mental illness.
We encourage our students to consider entering Children's Mental Health Ontario's Change the View video contest, by April 9. Secondary Students: Learn how to enter the Change the View Video contest
All families throughout KPR have access to an exciting, online math game that elementary students can enjoy at home. Prodigy allows children to practice the math skills they learn in class in a fun, Pokemon-style video game.
The game has improved students’ confidence, abilities and test results in math, and earned rave reviews from the children. You can sign up for a free parent account at www.prodigygame.com
Welcome to caring Kindergarten classrooms!
In January 2015, KPR began holding a series of focus group meetings with secondary students, parents, teachers and principals from our smaller secondary schools and their respective elementary feeder schools.
These focus group consultations have been exploring the variety of methods that these small schools are already actively using to support programming for students. The groups also have been considering how these schools can be further supported in the future.
One focus group meeting remains: Wednesday, February 25 at Campbellford District HS.

Grades 7-10 students have free, after-hours math help available on-line, thanks to Homework Help. This live, interactive math program is funded by the Ontario government and run by TVO's Independent Learning Centre. Every Sunday to Thursday, from 5:30-9:30 p.m., students can get live, one-on-one tutoring from an Ontario teacher. Lessons and information also are posted for students to see at any time.
When people think about the skilled trades, several immediately spring to mind – electrician, plumber, welder, carpenter, for example. But opportunities in the skilled trades are much more extensive: from hairstylist to cook, painter to landscaper, automotive service technician to crane operator – and so many more.
