About Ossington/Old Orchard Junior Public School

Ossington/Old Orchard Public School, fondly known as OOOPS, is located southwest of College Street and Ossington Avenue. In 1957, Old Orchard School was opened; a year later a second building was constructed, called New Orchard School. In 1961, the two schools were separated and the New Orchard School was renamed Ossington Public School. In 1973, with declining enrolment, the two schools were merged again as Ossington/Old Orchard Public School. OOOPS offers many opportunities for students to discover and explore a variety of interests. A strong curriculum delivery is enhanced by many extra-curricular athletic activities including baseball, basketball, soccer, cross-country, flag football, volleyball and Track & Field. Students can also join the primary and junior choirs, chess club and eco-club.

About Trinity-Bellwoods

The neighbourhood takes its name from Trinity Bellwoods Park, built around the former Garrison Creek ravine. This park was the original site of Trinity College, one of the colleges that now make up the University of Toronto. Today the only remaining artifacts of the school are its restored gates at the south end of the park. By 1900, the college and its picturesque surroundings attracted residential development. Most of the surrounding streets were filled in with tall, narrow houses of the Bay-and-Gable or Gothic Revival style characteristic of much of Toronto's housing stock from that era. A number of fine homes from the period are scattered throughout the neighborhood.
