The architecture of the school received international attention when it opened.</p><h2>Crest</h2><p>The School's crest was designed by Former Eastwood Student Doug Rickert in 1957. Designed to reveal both the school's name but also the components of its life blood. According to the 1956-1957 Eastwood Yearbook, CHIPS, "The rising sun...denotes not only 'East', but also the light given by our leadership to other schools and the community around us. The maple leaves provide the 'wood', and in addition signify our pride in holding a place in the educational system of Canada. The open book signifies the great store of knowledge readily available, and the desire to receive it, both present in our school. The motto...has also been included in the attractive crest which is a suitable emblem of our school".</p><h2>The Auditorium and Tech Crew</h2><p>Eastwood Collegiate Institute is currently the only school in the Waterloo Regional District School Board that boasts an industry-standard auditorium facility. The auditorium seats just under 500 people. It is also equipped with a custom-installed hemp rope system with over 20 bars. The lighting inventory is also the largest in the region's school board.
