Newton's Grove's Senior Production of 'An Excellent Adventure'!

Newton's Grove School celebrates and supports the whole child and provides all students with opportunities to experience and excel in a number of activities and events that facilitate their development in different ways. Newton's Grove is synonymous with high standards in academics, athletics and the arts and with that we highlight student achievements in all areas. 

This year, our spectacular Dramatic Arts students, in the Senior and Intermediate divisions, spent months rehearsing for our most recent production of "An Excellent Adventure". This fun, high energy comedy had something in it for everyone. From inter-dimensional time travel to live rap, our cast of exceptionally creative actors did not disappoint! This truly was an ensemble effort and we would like to thank the cast and crew for a job well done. Once again, Newton's Grove artists rose to the occasion and wowed their audience! 


Newton' Grove Musical Performance Exchange Trip 2017 in Cuba

Newton's Grove's music program recently went to Cuba for a musical enrichment program. Welcome back in Toronto musicians! 

While away, students were immersed in the Cuban culture; they had opportunities to perform, laugh and dance with their new found friends along the way. Students visited Havana, enjoyed the Cuban sun, performed with students from the Cuban Arts University, received dance lessons, and visited local cultural centres.

Newton's Grove provides opportunities for every student to explore their talents and passions in new and engaging ways. We provide every student with the support, opportunities and resources they need to achieve their personal best.

Newton's Grove watches Come From Away!

Newton's Grove believes in enriching the classroom with consistent opportunities for experiential learning across the breadth of disciplines. Most recently, our Drama students watched 'Come From Away' at the Royal Alexandra Theatre. Students had a phenomenal time; they had opportunities to learn about and reflect on what they have been discussing in class. Additionally, this outing afforded some passionate students with the opportunity to develop their passion for the theatre.

Newton's Grove is committed to their local community

Newton’s Grove is a community committed to lending their time to improve their immediate community.

The Senior and Jazz Bands had the privilege of playing at Kipling Acres, a long-term care facility. It was a moving experience for all of them, and they had the unique opportunity to see how the power of music was able to bring smiles, singing and even dancing to the residents. Our students spent some time visiting with the residents after their performance, and at the request of the residents, will be returning to perform in the Spring!

Thank you, Kipling Acres, for having us!


The Princess and the Penguin

Our Primary Production of the Princess and the Penguin was a fantastic success! What an amazing performance!

To the students in the Primary Division, your hard work and dedication to the production was obvious in how well you sung, danced and acted. To the Primary Division teachers, there are not enough words to describe how much we value your dedication to our students.

Congratulations to you all! Everyone worked extremely hard and should be very proud of how well they performed. We cannot wait to see what you come up with next year.

Happy Holidays Everyone!
