Library Learning Commons
The Library Learning Commons is a focal point in our school program. In a bright and attractive setting, the children have access to a variety of print and non-print learning materials that have been selected with the educational needs of the school program in mind. A part of the library program is devoted to the teaching of research skills which are so essential to resource-based programs. The library resource centre is a place for stimulating experiences or for the enjoyment of good books. We continue to need parent volunteers to work under the guidance of the librarian.
MakerSpace in the Learning Commons
Through our MakerSpace and working in partnership with our librarian, students are exposed to various new technologies, such as the MakeyMakey, robotics through the LEGO WeDo 2.0, as well as coding in Scratch. By providing students with opportunities to build their global competencies we are fostering deep learning through engaging experiences that incorporate creativity, inquiry, entrepreneurship, collaboration, leadership, communication, global citizenship, character, critical thinking and problem solving.
Field trips: Our students enjoy a wide range of field trips to the local public library, the Ontario Science Centre, the Zoo, the Museum, and other resource areas in the city.
Special guests: Resource people with special talents, hobbies, interesting occupations or backgrounds, visit the school so that students may observe, and frequently participate in, stimulating experiences.
