Student Art Work

At Westmount School art is an important part of each teacher's program.  Students do a variety of art projects during the school year using a variety of art supplies.

(It shows how hard the students work and shows the parents what we do in the school.  It also shows we are not afraid of showing our art work, even when we think it is bad.  It usually gives our school its colour. Written by Lidia, Chloe and Shelby - Grade 3 and 4 students)

More art work can be viewed in the Student Showcase tab on the Home Page.

Westmount Anthem

We sing this anthem at all our assemblies.

In the town of Strathmore
There’s a special school
Having fun together
Is the golden rule.

Chorus
Do the best that you can do
Be the best you can.
Every one at Westmount
Lends a helping hand.
We all learn to show respect
Help each other out.
That’s what being a friend at
Westmount’s all about,
Oh yeah, At Westmount School.

There’s exciting field trips
Great activities.
Westy is our mascot
For eternity.

Repeat Chorus

Teachers here are trusting
Showing us the way.
A Westmount education
Is useful everyday.

Repeat Chorus
Repeat Last Line Twice
