Welcome to Southridge P.S.
Home of the Superstars!
Southridge Public School is a Junior Kindergarten to Grade 6 school. We are the home of the Superstars! Our school colours are green and gold. Southridge Public School opened in 1965 and is located at 1425 Queens Boulevard in Southwest Kitchener. The Southridge school community welcomes a diverse group of people and cultures.
Monthly our students engage in learning from the Umbrella Project. Click here to learn more about this program and how it supports our student’s social and emotional learning.
Daily our students have two Nutrition Breaks. Our first break is from 10:55am until 11:35am and our second break is from 1:35pm until 2:15pm. Students go outside for twenty minutes and eat in their classrooms for the next 20 minutes. We follow a boomerang lunch program, asking that students bring home their garbage and recycling.
Nutrition for Learning
Nutrition for Learning brings food directly to schools across Waterloo Region. When Students are well-nourished at school, they are given the chance to learn, participate, and thrive. Southridge is a school that participates in this program providing students with nutritious snacks such as fruits or vegetables, protein or dairy and grains.

Pizza For All
Every Friday our School Council organizes a Pizza for All program. All students receive pizza and pay what they can. For the 2023-2024 school year, this program will be starting in October.
Code of Conduct
At Southridge, we believe that appropriate behaviour will be acquired through the learning process, which is a shared responsibility between the home, the school and the community. Our Code of Conduct emphasizes positive actions and applies to everyone in the school. In accordance with provincial and WRDSB policy, this code of conduct “governs the expectations of students, staff, volunteers and visitors on school property”.
