Charles C. McLean Public School is an English program public school serving approximately 137 Kindergarten to Grade 8 students living on Western Manitoulin.

The staff at C.C. McLean devote a great deal of time and effort to developing a well-rounded program for students. In addition to regular classes, students benefit from music, French and computer instruction. Intramural and extra-curricular activities encourage active, healthy living beyond the scope of the school. Teams include cross-country running, volleyball, soccer, basketball, baseball and track and field. In addition, students participate in choirs, musical presentations, chess and computer clubs, public speaking competitions and literary contests.

Through our character education program, students develop their personal character as well as their commitment to the school community, their community at large and the global community. Demonstrations of character traits such as honesty, responsibility, respect, and sportsmanship are recognized on a daily basis and acknowledged.

Activities such as Buddy Reading, Story Writing, and Winter Fun Day encourage interaction between children of various age groups. Older students are positive role models, fostering a caring school community.

Parents and community members support school projects by volunteering and providing financial donations. We have nurtured business partnerships that enhance student learning. Manitoulin Transport sponsors our WIN IT program by purchasing certificates and seals which recognize not only achievement in academic, athletic and artistic endeavours but also recognize effort, commitment, citizenship and participation.

The Royal Canadian Legion sponsors the Public Speaking contest for all age categories, awarding cash prizes and providing financial support for students who compete at regional and/or provincial levels. We are also proud to participate in the Remembrance Day Poem, Essay and Poster contest.

C.C. McLean Public School benefits from the parental and community support extended to our students and our staff. Everyone has a vested interest in the success of our educational, athletic and artistic programs as they benefit our children – the future of Western Manitoulin.

This Rainbow School is named after Charlie C. McLean who served as the school’s principal for many years. Originally named Gore Bay Continuation School and later, Gore Bay Public School, the school officially opened as Charles C. McLean Public School on October 12, 1973.
