  • 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!

On Friday May 30th at 11:30 am, PECI foods teacher delivered lunch to the Habitat for Humanity construction site in Picton. Students in the Senior foods program, who focus on international cuisine, selected a Greek-themed menu and prepared lunch for 15 hardworking volunteers. There was even food left over to share with the neighbours at the York St. construction site.

The P.A.R.T.Y. Program (Preventing Alcohol and Risk Related Trauma in Youth) is an informative and engaging in-hospital site based program designed to educate Grade 10 students about the consequences of a variety of risk related behaviours (distracted driving, drinking and driving, not wearing protective gear and lack of seatbelt use). Students observed and participated in reality based accident scene management, emergency room procedures and the reality of post accident scene rehabilitation. The overall objective of this outstanding program is to prevent and reduce risks and to provide students with the opportunity to realize the potential consequences of risk related behaviour.

 

It's ATV time in the transportation shop! Tyler Moore, James Tuttle, Zeb Snider and Riley Greer have all had fun working on the various vehicles in the auto shop. They got a chance to work on their own vehicles and gained valuable real-life experience. Great work guys!
