We are dedicated to providing a safe, supportive, and low teacher-student ratio environment.
A Safe Environment
Royal Oak also practices and employs fire safety and lockdown procedures, and children practice these many times a year to ensure comfort and competence in these important safety routines.
Good Personal Hygiene
Hand sanitizer will be available for each classroom for children to use. Children are taught proper handwashing techniques and have antibacterial soap in their bathrooms.
Cleaning and Disinfecting
Daily sanitization occurs at Royal Oak, in conjunction with deep regular cleaning. All surfaces are wiped down in classrooms and shared areas with an EcoLogo-certified Green product approved for use in Canada. Frequently touched surfaces are disinfected two additional times a day.
Airflow and UVC Lighting
Each classroom has windows that open and fans to keep circulation and ventilation moving throughout the day. At the end of our school day, UVC lights are used in each classroom which emits UVC and ozone to aid in killing germs.
We know children need opportunities for exercise, play, and social interaction. Royal Oak has an active intramural program, and each term holds 7 different clubs before and after school in order to promote skill development, social opportunities, and exposure to arts and athletic programs. The student council consists of peer-elected members and volunteers, this provides a means for student expression and leadership in the school.
Most Thursdays, families will have the option of ordering a delicious and healthy lunch which will be delivered to the school from a local business. Royal Oak also partners approximately once a month with a local restaurant to provide an out of school, dine in experience for the students which has become a very anticipated and fun outing!
Students are encouraged to participate in international math, essay writing, speech, and art competitions.
