Welcome to Howick Central Public School! We are a midsize rural elementary school serving the region of Howick Township, including the villages of Fordwich, Wroxeter, and Gorrie. We provide a supportive learning environment for approximately 380 junior kindergarten to grade 8 students. We are situated in the community of Howick on a large parcel of land that offers plenty of playground equipment and green space. We are conveniently located next to the Howick Arena and library.
Learning is a responsibility shared by the school, students, home, and community. Our dynamic, professional staff will strive to do our best to meet our students’ needs by creating positive and inclusive learning environments to enrich the learning for all of our students. We strive to create a love of learning that students will retain long after they leave our building. Students are at the centre of our approach to teaching and learning and our decision-making and we hold high expectations of student learning, leadership, participation and behaviour. On behalf of the staff we look forward to 2018-2019 being the best school year ever!
It’s my privilege, on behalf of the Avon Maitland District School Board, staff, parents and students of Howick Central Public School, to invite you to further explore the many aspects of our vibrant website.
I trust that you enjoy finding out more about our school community and the wonderful stories that exist within it.
Tracey Swart, Interim Principal.
