About Us

Lord Elgin Public School is located at 1100 Victoria Drive, London Ontario. It is nestled between Huron Street and Cheapside. It can only be reached off of McNay Drive. The school officially opened May 22, 1970. Lord Elgin was named after Governor General James Bruce, the eighth Earl of Elgin. He was appointed Governor General of Canada in 1846, and he remained Governor General until 1862. During his term of office, he brought into effect the principle Bill for Responsible Government.

Lord Elgin Public School serves a diverse, multi cultural population in its Junior Kindergaten to grade 8 programs.  The school currently has 340 students enrolled. The school has a high population of English Second Language students. The staff at Lord Elgin are highly professsional, kind and caring teachers, where the focus on the children and the community matter! We are also fortunate to have a great variety of volunteers. They range in age from senior citizens to Fanshawe students. Students are expected to follow a code of conduct that includes respect for others and zero tolerance for violence, racism and discrimination.  Lord Elgin has adopted R.O.A.R. (Respect, Optimism, Acceptance, Responsibility) as monthly character traits. Students are recognized for demonstrating the monthly skill as well as an opportunity to highlight academic performamce through our daily Paw Print awards as well as at our monthly Terrific Kids assemblies.

School Bullying Prevention and Intervention Plan (BPIP) 

Bullying Prevention Plans make up one part of a whole school approach to helping children and youth to feel safe, included and engaged in school. We know that by working with parents and community partners to develop supports and interventions for our students that we will continue to create safe and welcoming learning environments for all of our students to enhance their success and well-being.

Safe Schools Action Plan

Each school has a Safe Schools Actions Team (SSAT) which consists of students, teaching staff, non-teaching staff, parents, community members and administration. This team works together to set out specific goals that the school will work towards to ensure the school is a safe and welcoming environment for everyone.
