Learning By Exploring

While learning in the classroom is highly valued and a top priority, the learning that takes place off campus, or even outside Canada, is just as valuable. Considering new perspectives and new ideas from an alternate frame of reference, be it cultural, historical, artistic or academic, is why students cannot help but learn when they explore. 

Adventures in the recent past have included community service trips to Africa, Senior music trips to Europe and the U.S., athletic trips to the United Kingdom and the U.S., outdoor education and French exposure in Canada, French language immersion in France, and summer courses in Costa Rica, England and Spain.

Land Acknowledgment

CDS wishes to recognize and acknowledge the land on which the school operates. For thousands of years, these have been the traditional lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. We also recognize the traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat, Anishinaabe and the Haudenosaunee peoples who also shared this land.  CDS respects the relationship with these lands and recognizes that our connection can be strengthened by our continued relationship with all First Nations, by acknowledging our shared responsibility to respect and care for these lands and waters for future generations.
