New frontiers for new learning

Don’t look far

As principal of the school, I have the best job in the world because I never have to look far to see amazing things happening. Here are some highlights from this week:

– Kindergarten students in awe of art at McMichael’s gallery. Staff and parents were there to support their wonderment.

– Primary students exploring writing through an online tool called Storybird.

– Community class students exploring active learning through IPad apps.

– Junior students exploring Big Ideas within social justice, bullying, respect for the environment and equity themes.

– Intermediate students exploring the arts in the Artists’ Studio

– French classes sharing their house floor plans in class.

– students in Phys.ed classes learning skills through cooperative learning experiences

– junior basketball, talent show auditions, Eco Club, choir, floor hockey intramurals, math club

– Additional opportunities for supported learning occurring for students during lunch and after school in various classes.

And…this is only a snapshot of life at our school.

We don’t have to look far.

What was an amazing thing that happened for you this week?
