From the Office:

Once again, we would like to thank the students, staff, parents and school community for making our first year at Prince Philip so memorable.  We believe we have had a tremendously successful year, full of positive changes and growth.  Our students continue to demonstrate respect and responsibility and always represent Prince Philip in a positive way when they are out in the community.  This was very evident during our recent field trips and our time at Camp Wenonah.

We would like to thank our many volunteers and School Council for their commitment and contributions to school life.   We would like to wish Ms. Irwin and Ms. Van Veen all the best, each will be moving to new schools within the D.S.B.N. in September.  We would also like to thank Mrs. Jobson for many years of service at Prince Philip and in the DSBN.  We look forward to hearing about your adventures and hope you have a wonderful time in retirement.  In September, we will welcome Ms. Willms, E.A. and Mrs. Guald (French) to the Prince Philip team.

Finally, we would like to thank the staff for their support and commitment to Prince Philip School.  You have made a difference.  Have a safe and restful summer.

“Things turn out best for those that make the best of the way things turn out.”

Mornings at Prince Philip

We know that mornings can be a rush to get your children out the door. With that being said, it is important that your child is on time each morning for school. This means planning for enough time for your child to enter through the appropriate door with their class. Being on time will help your child maximize their learning and reduce long line ups for late slips at the office! If your child arrives after the bell they will need to report to the office for a slip. We ask that parents not take students directly to their classrooms, please bring your son/daughter to the office to check in.

Parking at Prince Philip School

Our parking lot has been repainted! Please note that cars and buses will be using the same drop off lane. Please be patient and help us ensure all of our students arrive safely at school.


Please be aware that we have several students with life threatening allergies at Prince Philip. To ensure we keep all of our students safe we are requesting that NO homemade snacks or treats be sent to school for special events (i.e. celebrations, birthdays). If you wish to send a treat with your child, please discuss it with your child’s teacher and choose a store bought snack with the nut free label on it. Thank you for helping keep all of our students safe.

Safety Tips for Students

Prince Philip teachers have reviewed safety in the community messages with our students, and we recommend that parents and guardians also discuss these safety rules with their children:

1. Don't talk to strangers.
2. Always walk to and from school with a buddy.
3. Do not take short cuts through alleys, parks, fields, etc. even if they are well lit.
4. Let someone know where you are and where you are going.
5. If you suspect someone is following you, RUN! Go to the nearest safe place.
6. If someone makes you feel uncomfortable, go to the nearest safe place.
7. Walk confidently and be aware of your surroundings.
8. Never, ever get into a stranger's vehicle.
9. Adults will never ask a child for help. If an adult asks you for help, run to a safe place.

Should your children report a suspicious incident to you, please report these incidents to the Niagara Regional Police and then notify the school.
