Cyril Varney Public School, home of the Victors, is a Kindergarten to Grade 6 elementary school with a current enrolment of 285 students and 25 dedicated staff members. The school was named in honour of Cyril Varney, a First and Second World War veteran and long standing member of the Ontario Board of Directors for the School Trustees Association of Ontario.
Cyril Varney Public School is located in New Sudbury. Our students live in neighbourhoods along the north side of Lasalle Boulevard. A before and after school YMCA program is available to busy families.
The school is built mainly on one level. There is a large playground for the primary children with a play structure and sandbox. Our School Council has planted shade trees to beautify the schoolyard. The junior playground has two soccer fields, a baseball diamond and a basketball court that are well used by students. The perennial gardens at the front of the school were accomplished in partnership with Home Depot, New Sudbury Canadian Tire, Adam & Eve Garden Centre, Ashley’s Landscape Supplies and Rainbow Concrete Industries Ltd. The Sudbury Master Gardeners and the Sudbury Horticultural Society have worked with our students to plant more trees and a healing garden.
Cyril Varney Public School operates on a ‘Balanced Day’ timetable. During our nutritional breaks, students are able to participate in clubs and intramurals that interest them.
Our school is committed to offering a strong academic program with a focus on the core areas of literacy and numeracy. We have developed an exemplary school bookroom with the most up-to-date resources for teaching literacy to students from all grades. We are an inquiry-based school where student interest is promoted through project-based learning.
At Cyril Varney Public School we are committed to building moral intelligence by education the heart and the mind. Our character development focus is directed by a staff committee. Learning opportunities, daily classroom discussions and weekly celebrations emphasize the importance of respect, responsibility, trustworthiness, fairness, caring and citizenship. Through our collective efforts, students at Cyril Varney Public School develop into good students of sound character.
Cyril Varney’s School Council is made up of a dedicated and committed group of individuals. Together, we have recruited wonderful volunteers who run our daily fruit program, help with hotdog days and work alongside teachers in our classrooms offering support during the literacy block.
Our mission is to provide a caring environment that encourages all staff and students to reach their full potential. With parents as our partners in education and professional collaboration between staff, we strive to support the academic, emotional and social growth of all of our students.
