Strings Magnet Program
The strings magnet program is a WRDSB recognized magnet program, which means qualified students within and outside the GRCI boundary are eligible to enter the program.
Instrumental strings is a program that focuses on the development of a broad range of musical skills for students with a particular interest in instrumental string music. The GRCI music program includes many extra-curricular groups and small ensembles including two string orchestras and a full symphony orchestra. Students participate in off-campus events and performances throughout the year. Each year students are also given the opportunity to participate in 2 off-site music camps that builds both skills and a strong sense of community. Please note that students attending Instrumental Strings from areas outside of their designated home school boundary are responsible for their own transportation.

We offer dynamic instruction in a wide variety of disciplines: strings, band, guitar, vocal and piano keyboard. Multiple co-curricular opportunities allow students to further develop their abilities and help build community, leadership and musical excellence. Many students take advantage of additional extra-curricular options such as: Fall and Spring music camps, yearly music trips, fundraising opportunities and various community events.
