Cash On Line

posted Sep 11, 2018, 12:48 PM by Peter Marshall


We will be encouraging all payments for events at Boyne to be paid through Cash On Line.  Our goal is to avoid students bringing cash and cheques to school.  These items are easily lost and upsetting for students.  Please use the link above to connect to Cash On Line.  If you have not registered yet, please do so as soon as possible.  Feel free to contact the school if you have any questions.

Day One at Boyne PS

posted Sep 5, 2018, 8:38 AM by Peter Marshall

What a fantastic first day! We love seeing families excitedly return back to Boyne. It was wonderful to have our halls and classrooms filled with the buzz of energy that your children's connecting and learning creates.

The main concern we heard from families was related to transportation. This is a common challenge at the beginning of any school year.

We are aware of the discrepancies many families are facing when accessing information from HaltonBus.ca. 

We understand many of your children are listed as eligible in one section of the website but then find they have not been assigned a bus and are listed as a walker. We know many of you are frustrated that there is a bus stop steps from your house but your child is not assigned to a bus.

We want you to know that we are working with Halton Bus to understand, and where possible fix, these problems. We ask that you continue to show the patience and understanding you have over the past number of days as we may not achieve a resolution to these concerns until the week's end.

Please continue to make us aware of your concerns. We also encourage you to continue to contact Halton Bus to ask questions and problem solve with them.

Year-End Celebrations and Food

posted Jun 20, 2018, 8:52 AM by Gary Levante   [ updated Jun 20, 2018, 8:53 AM ]

Dear Families,

We have a number of students with life-threatening allergies at Boyne PS. As a school we appreciate your continued support in not sending lunches or snacks with peanut butter, sunflower butter or nuts. We now would like to remind you about special events.

As we get to the end of our school year, classes will often hold celebrations or special events. We know that some families like to contribute to these parties.

We would ask that you NOT send in snacks from home or purchased from the grocery store for year end celebrations. We have found that acceptable alternatives are treats such as pencils, stickers, erasers, etc... 

Thank you for your anticipated understanding. 

Wow! What a Great Offer.

JUNIOR TRACK MEET CANCELLED

posted Jun 17, 2018, 6:51 AM by Peter Marshall

Due to the heat advisory in our area the Halton District School Board is cancelling the Junior Track and Field Meet on Monday, June 18th.  Organizers are meeting first thing Monday morning to look at available dates, busing and volunteer schedules to see if the meet can be placed on another day prior to the end of the school year.

Junior Track on MONDAY

We will be participating at Craig Kielburger Secondary School in Milton on Monday, June 18, 2018 for the Junior Track and Field Meet. Selected students have been training in Physical Education as well as during breaks to be ready for this exciting day when we will compete against other schools in Milton!


The meet will begin at 10:00 am and will run until approximately 1:30 pm. We will be leaving from Boyne at 9:15 am by bus. After the completion of the meet, students will be dropped off at the school for the remainder of the day and will be dismissed as per usual at the end of the day. We do encourage spectators to come and cheer our teams on in a number of events. Here are the approximate times for races and field events:
  • 10:00 am - 400 m; Grade 5, 4, 3
  • 10:00 am - Grade 3 Girls Ball Throw 
  • 10:30 am - Grade 3 Boys Ball Throw

There will be concession stands at the meet but students are asked to bring their own lunches and water for hydration. We remind students to dress for the weather and ensure that they have appropriate running shoes to participate safely. School jerseys will be provided for the students that are competing. It is important to note that the meet runs in almost any weather condition and athletes are asked to be prepared with extra clothing, sunscreen, hats, water and any other needed items. Electronics are not recommended due to the risk of loss.


Once again, thank you for your support of athletics at Boyne. We look forward to a very exciting day!
