Silver Stream Public School

The mission of Silver Stream P.S. is a place where people of all ages work and grow together, experience the joy of learning, and develop the skills, attitudes and knowledge necessary to be life-long learners, informed decision makers, and contributing members of society.

At Silver Stream Public School, we envision our school as being dynamic, purposeful, and inviting, where the learning of our students is our primary focus.

Silver Stream Public School officially opened in 2002. The school was named by students to recognize a significant local geographic feature, Silver Stream. A nearby farm, Silver Stream Farms, once provided the community with a place to buy fresh fruits and vegetables and was well known for its apple orchards.

Silver Stream houses approximately 625 students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8 in the regular and special education programs. The Junior and Senior Kindergarten early years program is a full day/every day program. In 2010, Silver Stream opened a community class program for gifted students from neighbouring schools. The gifted program includes students from grades 4 to 8.

Our school motto is “Set your Goals. Reach for Your Dreams” and our school mascot is the Falcon.


A large double gym and library are available for student programs. In 2013, with the support of the Silver Stream parent community, an outdoor classroom was created to provide an outdoor learning environment.
