Learn French with M. Steve!

Our very Monsieur Steve (grade 3, french immersion) is now a YouTube and media sensation! He started to create YouTube videos en francais at the start of emergency remote learning last spring, and has continued his passion for education with his own YouTube channel. Since the summer, he has gone on trips and recorded his adventures, as well as creating seasonal themed videos as well.  His love of teaching now has crossed outside his classroom walls - give his channel a follow!

Art Workshops with Philip Cote


Philip Cote Student 1

Grade 4&5 students in Mme. Lambert-Denis' and Mr. Fine's classes had the privilege of working with Philip Cote, an "Indigenous artist, activist, educator, historian and traditional wisdom keeper", this past November and December. As part of his Ancestral Teachings & Mentorship program, with facilitation by Withrow parent Sydney Grainger, he engaged students in online workshops which resulted in students using his painting style to create these incredible pieces of art!
