A large part of our goals at Hudson is to develop young students of character who will be the next leaders of the 21st Century. We teach students from an early age the importance of personal integrity, respect for others, self-discipline, social responsibility, teamwork, and much more as part of our monthly Character Awards that start in Kindergarten. Much of this character education takes place beyond the classroom and core academic curriculum, forming an integral part of the day-to-day fabric of our school.
Throughout their Primary, Junior and Intermediate years, we encourage our students to assume leadership roles, pursue their interests, and follow their passions, both inside and outside the classroom. This is accomplished through many various co- and extra-curricular activities offered at Hudson. Beginning in Grade 8, all Hudson students belong to one of four distinguished Houses - The Maritimes House; The Great Lakes House; The Prairies House; and The Rockies House. The House System is an important part of our community. All Faculty and Staff also belong to one of the four Houses.
The House System fosters a sense of community, belonging, and camaraderie that encourages healthy competition, develops school spirit, and rewards positive actions initiated by students by awarding points for participation in extra-curricular activities. Students proudly wear their House Colours on Spirit Days and House Huddle days as a sign of solidarity and pride with other House members. The House System is just one of the many ways that we provide a sense of community here at Hudson.
