New frontiers for new learning
Don’t look far
March 30, 2012Posted by on
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?
