Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School (OLF), its school community and KidActive continue their year and a half long partnership. The team is transitioning the school’s wide-open, grassy green-space into a fun, exciting and healthy place for students and staff to learn, play and grow.

The schoolyard at OLF has made several significant changes with the support of three grant TD Friends of the Environment, Toyota Evergreen Learning Grounds and Whole Kids Foundation.
