In October, students will continue
to develop their oral language abilities with the work of our improv artist,
Mat Mailandt. We are fortunate that he is bilingual so our immersion
students have the additional opportunity to develop spontaneous conversation in
French. As this residency comes to a close, parents will be
invited to one of their child's last classes working with Mat to
showcase their improv skills.
Our STEM residency on coding also begins
later this month and unlike many of our other residencies, it will continue in
small chunks throughout the year. The intention behind this is for
students and teacher to continue building their numeracy and critical thinking
skills and develop their capacity and confidence over the course of the
We are grateful for both of these opportunities that are possible
through the generous support of our School Council who raises money through
initiatives like the cheque writing campaign and casino.
