Now entering its eighteenth year, QEArts is the regional arts program for grade 7 and 8 Peel students who live south of the 401. Queen Elizabeth Senior
Public School is located in south Mississauga. Through this intensive
integrated arts program, Peel students have the opportunity to study
dance, drama, music, and visual arts while completing the regular grade 7 and 8
In QE Arts, students with similar interests explore their creativity through a challenging and innovative arts program. The program offers many opportunities for students to develop collaborative and creative skills while learning through the arts. Students have intensive blocks of time with subject specialists, certified Peel teachers, to concentrate fully on the arts program.
Peel Board Regional Learning Choices Programs are open to all students. Students who live in Brampton, Caledon and Mississauga will be offered spots first. Students who live outside of Peel Region will be offered spots once local student applicants have been accommodated. In some cases, all spots may be offered to students who live in Peel.
The online application will be available from January 27th - February 10th, 2020. To access this application, please go to www.peelschools.org/regionalprograms.
Each application must be accompanied by a $40.00 non-refundable application fee (cash, certified cheque, money order or online payment). In the event that a student is not able to provide the deposit, it will be waived with a letter from the student's current principal. Upon acceptance, the cost of the QEArts program will be $200.00 (plus an instrument rental fee).
QEArts is housed at Queen Elizabeth Sr. Public School, 60 South Service Road, Mississauga.
