You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.
(Mark 12:30)
You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
(Mark 12:31)
Martha J.Cartmell, 1845-1945, Founder of Toyo Eiwa Jogakuin

For someone's sake, let me begin first.

An impulse came upon me so strongly that I bowed in prayer. I felt myself alone in the presence on my Creator, and I said simply "Lord thou knowest me altogether, and seest the line of my life from its beginnings to the end. If I have heard thy voice, and if thou canst use me, here I am, send me."

Miss Cartmell said, "The Heavenly Father does see and care!" She firmly believed that people's true nature is found when serving God as well as people.

Subsequent missionaries dispatched to the school also had a remarkable influence on students and teaching staff, through their demonstrations of Christian faith and love. Their devotion led to the formation of our school motto, "Reverence and Service," which was established in 1928. Ever since, Toyo Eiwa has striven to live by its motto.

Toyo Eiwa's Christian Education

Since its foundation by the Methodist Church of Canada, Toyo Eiwa has developed into a comprehensive institution providing women's education from kindergarten through to university level. Toyo Eiwa strives to build character through Christianity, valuing people as individuals. Chapel services, studies of Christianity, school events and voluntary activities promote self-understanding and self-fulfillment. Toyo Eiwa encourages the spirit of reverence toward God and service to others.
