Blyth Academy Ball Hockey Tournament

Teams from Blyth Academy Downsview Park, Lawrence Park, Mississauga and Thornhill all came together today to compete in a Blyth Academy Ball Hockey Tournament at our Downsview Park campus! A special thanks goes out to Mr. Zupo who took the lead on organizing this event and will be organizing more Blyth Academy-wide sports events at our Downsview Park campus including a Hockey tournament in December.

Thank you and congratulations to all participants and apologies that Blyth Academy Downsview Park came 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place!

Though our physical doors remain temporarily closed, the minds of our students stay open. Full-time, Night School and Summer classes are continuing to meet on their regular daily schedules, in virtual classrooms with face-to-face instruction and peer interaction. We have been heartened by the resilience of our community of students, teachers and families through these challenging times, and the spirit with which our community has pressed forward with coursework, office hours, extracurricular activities, guidance consultations and community initiatives. The Blyth Academy model of small class sizes, flexible scheduling and individualized approach have enabled us to remain faithful to our standards. Our commitment to ongoing and meaningful communication between school, teachers, students and families has been critical to this effort.

Going forward, we are staying agile in our responsiveness to developments with COVID-19, always with the health and safety of our community top of mind. We are conducting ongoing planning to confront scenarios as they develop, with an array of options combining virtual classrooms, distancing measures at the schools, and scheduling modifications; all combined with the innovative teaching practices our faculty are developing through collaborative exchanges within and between our campuses. We will have several phases of return to, and if necessary retreat from, the bricks and mortar classrooms at the ready. We will continue consultations with our community and provincial health and education authorities to determine best options as the COVID situation progresses on its non-linear path.
