BLOCK 1 9:00 a.m.—10:15 a.m.

Every week Frederick Banting recognizes students who have made an effort and made a personal improvement, often separate of their academic progress.  Each week we draw from a list of teacher/staff nominated students.  Every student has an equal opportunity to win a Subway or Tim Horton’s gift card!


Trader Fred is a place to help yourself to gently used pre-loved clothing items and accessories.  A big shout out goes to all the great people who have donated to Trader Fred!!!  Students are encouraged to take a look because there are some really great items.  We are also doing our part for Plant Earth by giving goods a second life instead of one in a landfill!
