Safe Student Zones

Lester B. Pearson High School

Universal Washroom

LBPHS has the first universal washroom in the EMSB! School is like a second home, and every person should have the right to feel safe and comfortable in every space. On the main floor across from the games room is a gender-neutral washroom that is also easily accessible for students in wheelchairs or who have mobility challenges.

Games room

At lunch hour, students may join us in the games room for air hockey, Nintendo Wii and PlayStation 3 games, ping-pong, shuffle board, foosball and more! Games are offered free of charge and available to the first 20 students each lunch.

The games room has been successfully running since September 2013. The purpose of the games room is to foster a positive environment where students can socialize and engage in different activities such as ping pong, air hockey, board games and more.

It is a great place for our students to develop healthy relationships with peers and diminish negative behaviours due to being bored. It keeps students active all the while having fun.

Pearson Café

LBPHS’ Student Council transformed an old classroom into a student lounge! At lunchtime, students may visit the Pearson Café, where they can eat, use a microwave oven, play a game of pool or listen to music. The Café is also our permanent venue for our coffee house events.

Zen Zone

This room serves as a safe space for our students to regain balance and focus. Child care workers use this room to give our students the support they need in order to achieve success in all areas. Students may come to the room for quiet lunches and games as well as attend workshops led by our inter-disciplinary team.
