Community

Suddaby School is fortunate to be located in the vibrant Central Frederick Neighbourhood . We have many resources for families within walking distance including, The Kitchener Public Library, the Downtown Community Centre, The Centre in the Square, The Kitchener Waterloo Art Gallery, Kitchener Market and numerous parks including Victoria Park and Weber Park.

We show our citizenship at Suddaby in many ways. We help the Food Bank of Waterloo Region with our food drives.We have a “Me to We’ group of grade 6’s who are learning about being good citizens both locally and globally.Suddaby Students visit the seniors at A.R. Goudie RetirementHome on Fridays,on average, twice a month all year. At Christmas our ‘Tree of Warmth’ helps provide warm socks and mitts for our children at Suddaby as well as providing extras to Mary’s Place, ROOF and Anselma House.

Kitchener Public Library visits our classes several times during the year to keep us up to date on programs and locations.

Suddaby School is partnered with Chapters Indigo to recieve free books with their Adopt a School Program. So far we have earned 23  books and have 14 adopters. If you would like more information about how to support our library,check out details using the Link above.
