Community Updates

Happy Mother’s Day – May 12

To our SWL mothers/caregivers/guardians who celebrate Mother’s Day.  Enjoy your day and hope you find some time to relax.  Thank you for the care you demonstrate every day!

School Parking Lot

Thank you to our families for your continued support in ensuring safe travel to and from school for our students.  We have observed an increase in families walking to school and we appreciate your support with this process.

A friendly reminder, students needing to cross Albright Rd to enter the school grounds should cross at the crossing guard spaces placed close to both our entry and exit areas of the school.  In addition, students should not be entering the school through our parking lot.  Please remind your child to use the sidewalks as these are the safer pathways entering and exiting school.

Travel To and From School Reminders:

  • Families requiring to drive will need to park vehicles on adjacent streets following bylaw
  • Walk, Roll, Bike to school
  • Students assigned to a bus should utilize the bus service

Your understanding and support for student safety is appreciated.

HWDSBe Kind Initiative

Sir Wilfrid Laurier is excited to host a fundraiser during the week of May 13th– 17th to support the HWDSBe KIND campaign!

The theme of Sir Wilfrid Laurier’s fundraiser is promoting kindness by improving school mental and physical health! We are excited to be selling kindness stickers, popcorn, running kindness activities and raising money for DPA equipment! To learn more about our school’s fundraiser and how you can donate, click here to visit our website


Launched by Hamilton Foundation for Student Success (HFSS), HWDSBe KIND aims to raise funds for our school and HFSS Student Support Grants, which provide financial assistance to HWDSB students for school-related expenses and basic personal needs.


In addition to supporting a common cause, the fundraiser is an opportunity to provide students with real and practical applications for everyday life that will support the positive physical, emotional and mental health benefits associated with kindness.

How You Can Help

This year HWDSBe KIND will raise fund for Sir Wilfrid Laurier’s classrooms to obtain additional DPA equipment and HFSS’ Student Support Grants so that all students can come to school and participate as equals while there.

Students and families can support through our online donations. We would not be able to provide this same level of care and assistance for students without you, and we sincerely thank you for your kindness and generosity.

We look forward to seeing everyone come together to help support students!
