Terry Fox Walk To Breakfast


We apologize for posting this so late, but we still feel it is important to thank all those who donated to the ‘Terry Fox Run’ and the Breakfast Programs’ ‘Walk To Breakfast’ which happened at RIA on October 4th.  We appreciate the contributions of all our school community volunteers who prepared a fantastic breakfast for us! As always, we are so pleased to have the Random Lions Club support our school!  And thank you to all who donated to such good causes!




Random Island Academy would like to thank all the volunteers that made our annual Fall Fair a huge success this past Saturday!  Your efforts are extraordinary and we couldn’t possibly do all we do without the support that you give us; so again…THANK YOU!  We would also like to thank Hickman Nissan and their fabulous staff for coming to RIA to hold their Test Drive event at our school.  This is an amazing initiative and we are grateful for your support of our school community!  We also need to thank all the vendors who came to our event; we appreciate your efforts and we hope to see you back again next year!  Finally, we need to thank all the people who came out to support the Fair, the Nissan Test Drive event, and the book drive.  We are ever so grateful for the support that you all have given.  We hope to see you again next year!!! 

Fire Prevention Week

A BIG Thank you to the Random East & Random West Fires Departments for coming in last Friday to talk to our students about fire prevention and fire safety!  And, of course, we have to thank SPARKY for coming in and engaging our students!  We learned a lot and we are grateful that both departments are there to help keep us safe!  It is great to have you both in for a visit in our building and we are fortunate to have you as part of our school community!

Invictus 2017 Comes To An End, But The Inspiration Will Remain!

As the Invictus Games comes to an end in Toronto we are left inspired  We are also extremely proud of Melissa Smith as she finishes up the games with a Silver medal and was also selected to be Team Canada’s flag bearer in the closing ceremonies; this was a great honour and one which allowed Melissa to receive the Invictus Medallion for her team and  shake hands with the Patron of the Games, Prince Harry.

Melissa has traveled a long road since she left Random Island Academy and we hope this Invictus experience was truly a fantastic one for her.  We were so proud to see her compete on an international stage, and we were extremely proud to hear the words ‘Random Island’ & ‘Elliott’s Cove’ uttered so much on National Television! Watching you capture a Silver Medal and walk in with our country’s flag during the closing ceremonies has been an inspiration; our students have learned so much from watching these games and watching you…Thank You!
