    We believe that communication through self-expression is essential to the creative development of each student. In our art's classrooms, students are encouraged to explore their own dramatic, musical and visual arts abilities and to interact with others in group situations. Students can also get involved with clubs such as the Improv Team and the school play.
  • Innovating With Technology

    Technological innovation influences all areas of life. Technological education at PECI focuses on developing students’ ability to work creatively and competently with technologies to be able to meet the challenges and opportunities of the twenty-first century. Our students earn dual-credits with Loyalist College through our unique Trading-Up program.
  • Learning Through Athletics

    Physical activity and athletics have a major impact on students both in and out of the classroom. At PECI, our dedicated coaches teach the importance of working together as a team and strength of character. Through sport students learn the leadership skills, how to embrace each other's strengths and how to make up for the other's weaknesses. We are better together!

  • Prince Edward County Accommodation Review Committee (ARC) Parent/Guardian Selection Process for PECI

    As you know by now, the Prince Edward School Group has been announced as the focus of one of the three Accommodation Review Processes that will be occurring this year.  HPEDSB Procedure 178 succinctly outlines the mandate and composition of the Accommodation Review Committees, also called “ARCs.”  This procedure notes, specifically, that two parents can be representatives on the ARC along with one School Council Chair.  Our Director of Education requires that we have our selections for our ARC members in place before December 23, 2016.

    Selection Process:

    Please note the following information that was communicated by our Director:

    It is important to share with everyone who may consider this role that there will be a minimum of five meetings all of which will be held in public session. It is likely that additional working meetings of the ARC and school-based teams will be necessary.  ARC meetings will take place between January and May. Board Committee meetings related to ARC’s will take place in May and June. There will be two meetings at which the public will have input in each area.

    Please also note that all of the ARC meetings will be held outside of school hours. The school-based ARC meeting dates are set by the Board and are available by clicking here.  Participation in the ARC is voluntary.  ARC members are limited to those designated for participation; delegates or proxies are not permitted in the ARC member’s absence.  If a member is unable to attend, the meeting proceeds according to schedule.

    We will use the following process to select our parent members for the ARC.

    Eligibility:  Any parent or guardian who has a student attending Prince Edward Collegiate Institute is eligible to serve on the ARC as parent representative.

    Self-Nomination:  Parents or guardians who wish to serve on the ARC for PECI may formally identify themselves by attending the upcoming school council meeting on Tuesday, December 13th when they will indicate their interest at that time.

    Voting:  If more than 1 person is nominated, voting will take place by secret ballot at the school council meeting.  This will be a timed item at the beginning of the meeting.  No voting will take place after that time.

    Selection:  The 2 parents/guardians who receive the most votes will be selected for the ARC.

    Ties:  Should the voting result in a tie, a re-vote will be held. The ballots for the re-vote will have only the parent/guardian names who are part of the tie.

    Announcement:  The parent/guardian members of the ARC will be announced by social media upon conclusion of voting.

    All parents/guardians interested in the process are encouraged to attend the school council meeting on Tuesday, December 13th to ask any questions they may have prior to formally identifying themselves as a prospective member.  Please feel free to contact the school if you require information ahead of the meeting.

    We look forward to working with you as we engage in possibility thinking in service of our students.

Athletic Council is selling Panther wear!  Order forms and sample items are available at lunch in the front lobby Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday until November 3rd.  Money is due by the 3rd.  Cash is the preferred method of payment.  All items are UNDER ARMOUR products.  Please speak to Mrs. Spencer or a member of your Athletic Council if you have any questions.  Order forms are also available by clicking here.

 

Attention all seniors; the time to begin your post-secondary research is this Fall- now!  Please review our post-secondary information package for 2016-17 by clicking here.  Be sure to connect with Mr. Ronan or Mrs. White if you have questions about what opportunities might be in story for you as you think about your best next step.  We look forward to preparing and empowering you for the possibilities of today and tomorrow.

Calling all parents,  Would you like to have an inside perspective on events and issues affecting your community school?  Please consider joining school council.  We are a fundraising free, engaged group who assemble over the course of the school year to discuss events and issues related to PECI.  Your voice and opinion matters and would be appreciated.  Our first meeting of the 2016-17 school year will be Tuesday September 27th at 6:30 - 7:30 pm in the PECI Library.  We value everyone's time and operate efficiently.  New members are always welcome and we hope to see you there!

Calling all grade 9 Panther parents and guardians.  A reminder to attend the Fall Family BBQ and Parent Information Night on September 15th from 5:00 to 7:00 pm.  This is an opportunity to break bread over a complimentary BBQ, meet other parents, the grade 9 staff and follow your student's timetable to truly understand the student experience.  Please note that these are not parent interviews as they occur later in the Fall, rather a brief introduction to each class your student attends daily.

We look forward to meeting you!  Please contact the school and speak to Lisa Fraser (Ext. 2232), our Student Success Lead Teacher if you have any questions.
