The Big Sister/Little Sister Program

Our Foundation, Middle and Senior Schools are co-located on one campus. Being part of a community of girls from ECE right through to Grade 12 is a unique part of the SMS experience and provides tremendous opportunities for mentorship and cooperative learning.

Our Big Sister/Little Sister Program is a student-led mentorship program much beloved by our students. Each Foundation Years girl is paired up with a Middle or Senior Years girl and Little Sisters and Big Sisters participate in school-wide events and house challenges together. The benefits of this program are felt by all our students; younger students have someone to look up to and who will always offer a hug, older students have someone to set an example for, boarding students have a sense of family and international students have an unintimidating conversation partner. The program fosters positive relationships that span grade divisions and a strong sense of community within our school.
