A partnership with Better Beginnings, Better Futures (BBBF), a community-based organization devoted to creating a strong, safe environment for the children of the Flour Mill and Donovan.

With a large number of First Nation students, Queen Elizabeth II offers an Ojibwe Language Program for students from Kindergarten to Grade 6. We have an active School Council that meets at least four times per year to discuss a variety of important school-related issues.
Queen Elizabeth II Public School believes in the basics. Our curriculum emphasizes reading, writing and mathematics and provides a solid foundation for future learning. Our school has a strong focus on mathematics and continues to focus on developing future writers and building strong literacy skills. Queen Elizabeth II also offers the all day every day Kindergarten program for our four and five-year-olds, with a classroom teacher and Early Childhood Educator in the classroom supporting a play based learning environment.
We also recognize the importance of character development by actively promoting Rainbow District School Boards’ character traits and rewarding our students for positive behaviours. A variety of partnerships are designed to promote positive character development such as the implementation of Roots of Empathy which develops empathy in students, as well as the V.I.P. program (Values, Influences and Peers) in partnership with the Greater Sudbury Police Service which teaches junior students important values to help develop strong character.Staff and students also extend their community responsibility by participating in the Terry Fox Run, Jump Rope for Heart and the Kids Helping Kids Food Drive.
Queen Elizabeth II provides a strong co-curricular program with a variety of activities and a staff that are second to none.
Queen Elizabeth II students are prepared for the future ahead because of the skills and values practiced here at school.Friendships made and lessons learned will prepare us for all that lies ahead!
