David Hornell Junior School (GR. JK-05)
David Hornell Junior School, built in 1961, is located in the community of Mimico, very close to Lake Ontario. Named after Mimico resident and World War II flying ace and Victoria Cross recipient, Flight Lieutenant David Hornell, the school proudly displays its heritage on an outdoor plaque and with an extensive display of memorabilia in the front hall. The school community honours his memory annually on Remembrance Day. The school serves a diverse population of students. For many of them, David Hornell School is their first link with Canadian culture. A large number of our students speak another language at home while they acquire English skills at school. As they work and play with others their communication skills develop quickly.
