Nutrition Programs

Making the connection between what we eat and how it affects wellness is at the core healthy eating.

Eating breakfast impacts a student’s ability to learn and focus in the classroom. By packing a healthy lunch for your child, you ensure they can recharge and get through the day.

Many of our schools offer nutrition programs. Contact your Principal to see if one is offered at your school.

Vision and Hearing Testing

Good vision is at the centre of a child’s ability to learn. Students need good vision to see clearly, read and fully participate in class activities. Regular vision examinations are part of being ready for school.

The Gift of Sight and Sound program provides vision and hearing screening for students in underserved communities. Students who require further assessment are directed to health care professionals. If students require glasses and/or hearing aid devices, they receive them free of charge.

Paediatric Clinics

To help improve access to health care, we have launched the Paediatric Health Care Initiative to open medical clinics in city schools.

There are currently seven paediatric clinics in our schools:

  • Chester Public School
  • George Webster Elementary School
  • Nelson Mandela Park Public School 
  • Parkdale Junior and Senior Public School 
  • Sprucecourt Public School 
  • Thorncliffe Park Public School 
  • Willow Park Junior Public School

Beyond 3:30

Beyond 3:30 is an after-school program for students in Grades 6, 7 and 8. The program runs on school days from 3:30 to 8 p.m. in local schools.

This program provides students with a fun, safe and educational place to be after school and offers a number of programs that encourage a healthy lifestyle. Students can learn to cook or participate in physical activities that help students make smart choices and develop social skills and improve their self-esteem.

Beyond 3:30 is offered at:

Beyond 3:30 runs in partnership with the Toronto Foundation for Student Success and the Toronto Foundation and with the support of donations from the local community.

Kids2See and Kids2Hear

Schools in Learning Centres 1 and 4 have the opportunity for kindergarten students to have their vision and/or hearing screened by Kids2See/Kids2Hear, a research initiative conducted by students in the medical school program at the University of Toronto.


MSIC seeks to develop partnerships through large initiatives and with local communities to collaboratively support student success. Some partnerships include Toronto Public Health, Toronto Public Library, Toronto Foundation for Student Success and Community Care Access Centre.
