Our History


In the fall of 1991, the Parent Committees of Sir Winston Churchill High School and St. Laurent High School were presented with proposals from the school board for the future secondary education in St. Laurent. The plan drawing the most support was one calling for the closure of both schools and the creation of a new entity, a school combining the strengths of Sir Winston Churchill and St. Laurent while offering the best opportunities for all students in the community.

A committee made up of administrators, teachers, students and parents was created. Every aspect of the new school was discussed and after lengthy discussion, an agreement was finally reached.

Gail Ewing, a staff member, created the name for the new school by combining the "Lauren" from St. Laurent and the "Hill" from Winston Churchill. LaurenHill was born, becoming in the fall of 1992 the center of English high school education in St.Laurent.

Educational Project

The Education Act requires each school and centre to develop an educational project which sets out the mission, aims, and objectives of the school and the means of implementing and evaluating them.

Anti-Bullying Anti-Violence Action Plan

Our school's Anti-Bullying Anti-Violence Action Plan outlines the measures for preventing and responding to acts of bullying and violence in our school under the EMSB Safe Physical and Cyber Environment Policy and the Quebec Education Act.

In accordance with the Education Act, all elementary and high schools must develop an anti-bullying and anti-violence plan aimed at fostering a safe school environment. The focus is to outline prevention measures and intervention methods for incidents of bullying and/or violence through nine essential elements:

  • Element 1: School Analysis
  • Element 2: Prevention Measures
  • Element 3: Collaboration with Families
  • Element 4: Procedures for Reporting
  • Element 5: Intervention Protocol
  • Element 6: Confidentiality Measures
  • Element 7: Support Measures
  • Element 8: Disciplinary Actions
  • Element 9: Complaint Follow-Up

Each school's ABAV Action Plan is available on its respective website.

Note: as an educational institution, the English Montreal School Board prioritizes remediation practices centered around re-integration and restorative approaches, rather than relying primarily on disciplinary consequences.

Each year, the school assembles a committee consisting of various staff members to set prevention measures based on the identified priorities following an analysis of the situation related to bullying and/or violence. 

The ABAV committee also conducts an annual review of the prevention measures initiated throughout the year to ensure the maintenance of a safe school environment. 

The ABAV Action Plan must be approved annually by the school’s Governing Board.
