New frontiers for new learning

Our School Touchstone

Last spring, our students, staff and community embarked on a journey to develop a school touchstone. On September 3, 2013, we launched the final version of everyone’s hard work.

We think you’ll love what we’ve created:

Lorna Jackson Touchstone

 Lorna Jackson is our home away from home; a family.

Aspiring to become the best we can be, we take risks to achieve our goals.

Not afraid to accept the challenge of the harder path, our setbacks drive us to seek success.

Thinking before we speak and act, we are respectful of others and of ourselves.

We are dedicated to our learning as it paints the picture that is our future.

We live our core values:

Honesty

Honour

Pride

We are unique individuals working collaboratively, and working together is a process.

When one of us falls, others will surely be there.

We are devoted to the improvement of our community, helping those in need.

We are not bystanders; we stand together.

STINGERS soar high!
