Who doesn't remember as a young child the profound impact an older student had on you while modeling their own personal talents, skills and character? Or as a teenager, seeing younger children engaged in discovery and wonder, reigniting your own playful spirit and reminiscing of your joyous journey to young adulthood? These invaluable moments happen spontaneously and intentionally every day at St. Margaret's.
St. Margaret’s recognizes the unique benefits of our early childhood through grade 12 school community, including leadership, connection, character building, role modeling, mentorship and joy.
St. Margaret's creates meaningful opportunities throughout the school year for cross-divisional student projects and for all Tartans to come together working toward shared goals and engaging in experiential learning projects.
Importantly, through St. Margaret's Innovation Strategy and ethnographic research, our students, young and older, have told us that they enjoy and benefit from being together across divisions. They deepen and tap into their personal values, they model and learn from each other, and create lasting memories and bonds across ages. We know that the benefits of time together are immeasurable for both younger and older Tartans.
