Our School

Fielding Drive Public School, a sprawling brick bungalow surrounded by spacious grounds, is nestled in a residential area near Mooney’s Bay. Opened in 1969 as an open concept K-8 school, the open areas have had walls added to form more traditional classrooms. In 1988, Fielding became a middle school for Grades 4-8 English program and Grades 5-8 Early French Immersion program. A creative program delivery model reflects the staff’s dynamic, exciting, and collaborative approach to education.
At Fielding, we strive to create a family-like climate where the Fielding staff, students, and parents show genuine care and commitment for each other. Within this supportive and stimulating environment, all students are encouraged to do their best to reach their potential.

Our Students

Our students within the English Program come from General Vanier. Our Grade 5 Early French Immersion students are from Bayview Public School.

Our Staff

Our staff at Fielding is recognized for their commitment to educational excellence, and their expertise in meeting the needs of a very diverse population. Teachers continuously upgrade their skills and knowledge through after school workshops, summer courses and curriculum development activities. Teachers plan and often deliver units of study as a team. This collaborative approach enriches the quality of our programs and ensures that the scope and depth of staff expertise is maximized and shared with all students. Supporting our teachers in their objectives is an excellent office (1.5 positions) and custodial staff, 3 Educational Assistants as well as a 0.5 library technician, a school psychologist, speech pathologist, MLO and social worker.

Our Community

Fielding Drive is very fortunate to have a dedicated, supportive School Council and volunteers who work with staff to enhance academic and extracurricular programs. The Council’s goals include awareness of education and support for school efforts through volunteering and fundraising. We have a solid core of parents/community members participating during the school year, some at a single event and some on a weekly basis. Volunteers help in the classrooms, library, and on field trips. School Council meets the third Wednesday of the month with the main focus on sponsoring school events and activities. We welcome and encourage all parents and members of the community to attend.

Mission Statement
