Who We Are

In Torah Academy Primary School, the classroom is a haven of learning and connection, Beyond the confines of the classroom is an intangible magic that takes place in our school.

It’s the growth, learning and connectivity that takes place outside of the walls, beyond the scope of books and curriculum. It’s the out of the box treasures that gives so much more depth, meaning and insight to our students.

The uniqueness in Torah Academy Primary School is that we are a team of educators who collaborate and share to inspire creativity. Our Round Robin workshop in the senior classes encouraged teachers to share their insight, knowledge and wisdom with their peers.

Holistic, though we hear this all too often now, it really encapsulates how we educate. We not only teach one part of one student, but rather the student’s entire soul and world. In this focus, we have extended our education to parents and guardians on the journey into adolescence.

I humbly continue this educational journey and thank my team of stakeholders: students, parents, teachers and more. May we continue to invest in broadening the magic, revealing the treasures of structured and even more so less structured informal learning beyond the classroom.
