SMLS has a tradition of serving the community and looking beyond our walls. This continues the school’s long time commitment to service dating back to our roots from the Sisters of the Church, an Anglican Order, to students who, during wartimes, provided Red Cross care package for overseas troops. The service may have changed over the years, but the intent has not.
Annually, students in the Junior, Middle, and Senior Schools, and staff volunteer countless hours to local, national, and international organizations that represent social, environmental, and humanitarian interests.
Over the past five years, our students and staff have worked to raise over $420,000 for various local and international charities. Our girls know from an early age that giving back to our community is important and part of being a well-rounded global citizen.
Every fall, we are proud to be the host venue for Home Suite Hope’s Empty Bowls fundraiser, and in the spring, we host Special Olympics Hometown Games. Many of our Middle Level and Senior School girls are also involved with Oakville Teenagers in Action.
