  • 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 Collegiate Institute is proud to present a partnership project between our local OPP officers and our school which is authentically creating opportunities for students to contribute to their community in a very meaningful way.  Our goal is to ensure we continue our work supporting the foundations for a healthy school. 

The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Prince Edward County detachment, in partnership with Prince Edward Collegiate Institute will be hosting a presentation.  The “Am I In Trouble?” presentation discusses difficult situations youth may have experienced or witnessed.  The presentation will be delivered by teens for teens, supported by many community services. 

Representatives from the OPP, Ministry of the Attorney General, Victim Services Hastings, Prince Edward, Lennox & Addington Counties, Quinte Health Care Domestic Violence/Sexual Assault Response Program, Alternatives For Women, Community Organized Support & Prevention (Quinte), Children’s Mental Health Services and Quinte Children’s Foundation is participating.

The intention is to help teens better understand the risks and consequences of challenging societal topics such as Bullying, Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Self/Peer Exploitation “Sexting” and to ensure they understand the variety of community supports available to them for assistance.

Research shows that parent engagement is critical to student engagement and ultimately student success.  We are pleased to invite parents from throughout our school community, including our elementary feeder schools, to join us by attending Prince Edward Collegiate Institute located at 41 Barker St., Picton on May 12, 2015 at 7pm.  Please contact Mr. D. McFarlane (Principal) if you wish additional detail.
