We are looking forward to seeing our folk dancers and their families tomorrow night for Folk Fest!
Students must arrive at East York Collegiate Institute, 650 Cosburn Avenue (Coxwell and Cosburn), between 5:45 pm and 5:55 pm and meet our school on the field.
Parents are invited to sit in the stands or on the outside perimeter. For student safety, the event organisers as that parents please do not stay with the group. Only those who have signed up be a parent volunteer should remain on the field (and even most volunteers will be invited to sit in the stand once the dancing begins).
Dancing will end around 7:30 pm (no later than 8:00 pm). At the end, please find us on the field and sign your child out with a teacher before leaving after the event, so we can ensure that all children leave safely.
Method of Travel
As arranged by parent/guardian. Please travel by TTC if possible, as parking is limited. If at all possible, parents should take public transit or carpool. EYCI is a 5-minute bus ride from Coxwell Station (take the 70 or 70A bus). If you are driving, please read parking signs carefully to avoid ticketing.
Please ensure your child eats dinner before coming.
Children may bring a bottle of water if they wish.
Students should arrive wearing the following:
- dark bottoms. running shoes that lace up or have Velcro closures
- school t-shirt (your own if you have one, or one loaned to you by the school) or a yellow or black t-shirt if a school shirt is not available (many were not returned from previous sports events)
- folk dance scarf (loaned by school)
- layers if it is a cool evening (e.g. a long sleeve or sweater beneath t-shirt).
Thank you for all your support,
Mme Mackness, Mme Hamilton, Mme Alma, Mme Afonso & Ms Wortley
We are missing quite a few black LLPS t-shirts, probably from last week’s track & field meet or possibly even from way back in October from Cross Country season. If your child mistakenly kept one of these shirts please note that they belong to the school and are needed for upcoming events. Below is an image of the t-shirts we’re looking for.
Please kindly return asap.

TRACK & FIELD:
On Monday, May 8th over 40 students from Lord Lansdowne in grades 4, 5 & 8 participated in the South Qualifier Track & Field Meet at Birchmount stadium. From start to finish the students exemplified awesome athleticism, sportsmanship, enthusiasm and respect. It was a beautiful day for a track meet (especially considering the weather last week!).
I tried my best to film all races so parents who couldn’t attend could watch their children’s events. Please check out the video playlist here.
Here’s a little intro video showcasing some of our athletes:
And here are a few photos from the day:
Thank you again to everyone who helped make this event possible, especially for parents who drove their children early in the morning all the way to Birchmount! Congrats and bravo to all of our athletes! Official results should be sent to us soon, we will post them in the school for students to see as soon as we receive them.
Dear Lord Lansdowne families,
This month, our School Council is very excited to offer the opportunity to purchase t-shirts, hoodies, sweatpants and caps with Lord Lansdowne’s new school logo. Proceeds will fund initiatives for our school and our students.
