Welcome to Senator Gibson Public School

Senator Gibson Community,

This year we are proudly supporting The Terry Fox Foundation in its ongoing work to fund innovative and progressive cancer research programs. Please support our school by joining us, or making a donation. Your kindness will impact the lives of so many people living with cancer. Our goal is to raise $4000 in cancer research money at our event.

Together, let's BE LIKE TERRY! We are asking Gators to wear RED and WHITE to celebrate our Canadian hero, Terry Fox, on Run Day.

The Senator Gibson Terry Fox Run will take place on Sept. 28, 2017.

Important Message About Anaphylaxis:

There are students who attend our school that suffer from anaphylaxis.  Anaphylaxis is an allergic reaction that affects 2 or more organs, so severe that in some cases it can be life threatening. Its’ onset is so swift that from time of exposure to death can be as short as 15 minutes.

We have children with severe allergies to peanuts, nuts and nut products, shellfish, bananas and eggs. Just touching or smelling one of these allergens can cause a life threatening anaphylactic reaction for students at our school. Prevention is the best approach!  We ask your cooperation in using discretion when sending food to the school.  We also request that you speak to your child about these allergies and about the importance of washing their hands with soap and warm water.

As a staff, in accordance with the parents of these students, we have developed a plan to deal with this situation.  We know that if we work together, we can help to create a safe learning environment for all of our students.  If you have any questions about this request or about anaphylaxis, please call the school office.

On behalf of these students, their parents, and the Senator Gibson Public School staff, we thank you for your understanding and co-operation.
