Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board

  • Your Community School

    Prince Edward Collegiate Institute (PECI) is a community secondary school located in Picton, Ontario serving over 600 students from across Prince Edward County. With a strong academic program, a wide variety of athletic & extra-curricular activities, and excellent facilities, PECI continues a more than 50-year tradition of serving all students living in Prince Edward County to ensure their success in the world.
  • Academic Excellence

    Our focus on academic excellence means we are committed to the continuous development of our programs and courses, how they are designed, and how we deliver them. Our Venture Enrichment program offers our students an outstanding preparation forr pstents in the post-secondary pathway.
  • Dedication to the Arts

    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!

  • Panther Artists On Display at 27th Annual Art Show

    Resilience: 27th Annual Secondary Art Show
    LOCATION: John M. Parrott Art Gallery, 3rd floor, Belleville Public Library, 254 Pinnacle Street, Belleville

    DATE: April 2 – 29, 2015

    This event continues to be a spectacular way to showcase the creativity and personal expression of Visual Arts students to the community. Under the guidance and expertise of Art teachers, students have learned to explore and apply a variety of media, materials, technologies, tools and techniques using the application of elements and principles of design.

    Additional learning has been to prepare the art works for presentation to a broad community audience and to understand the effect of the Arts in everyday lives. These pieces demonstrate student learning of Ontario curriculum requirements.

    Works/techniques on exhibit include the following:

    • Drawing: pencil, pencil crayon and ink
    • Printmaking: dry point prints, mono-prints, collagraphs and colour reduction lino block prints
    • Acrylic painting and mixed media

    Eight pieces from each secondary school will be on display.

    Thank you to gallery Curator Susan Holland for assistance in coordinating this exhibit.
