​Excerpted from our April Newsletter​.

“The land is where our roots are. The children must be taught to feel and live in harmony with the Earth.” – Maria Montessori

This quote is so appropriate particularly at this time of year. With the warming of the weather and longer days, children should be outdoors connecting with the environment. Living in harmony with the earth also extends to the animals, plants and people that are part of our planet. 

We can only understand and have empathy for concepts we experience so we try to provide our students with opportunities to learn and explore outside the school as often as possible. You are always welcome to be part of your child(ren)’s educational experiences through volunteering! Come connect with us on a field trip or in the classroom. It is our hope by making these important connections students will develop the skills and attitudes needed to succeed in our future world.

We are well into the homestretch of the school year but show no signs of slowing down. We have another Artist-In-Residence, Sound Kreations, field trips, performances including Orff the Wall, new clubs, as well as the regular day-to-day events in learning. Our school focus of Connections continues to be the overarching theme and the students have embraced showcasing and celebrating their learning in our Killarney Connects Assemblies each Friday. The assemblies have provided the time for us to connect as a school community and we continue to be inspired by the ways our students are connecting with their learning.

Grace, Gratitude, and Courtesy will be at the forefront of our work. We will refocus on being aware of our impact on those around us as well as fostering peace and calm through mindfulness. We encourage families to continue the work at home through practice in courteous behaviour and intentional observation of our surrounding environment.

We look forward to April bringing a renewed energy and many more wonderful connections!

With Gratitude,
Bonnie Caldwell and Christine McCrory
