The Traditional Learning Centre uses teacher-directed, whole group instruction and character education to foster reflective thinking, continuous learning and responsible citizenship. It is a celebration of cultural diversity and commonly held values. The virtues-oriented class environment prepares students to meet the moral, technological and global challenges of the 21st Century.
TLC Philosophy and Guiding Principles
Three Pillars of the Traditional Learning Centre
Respect for Self
Each student will strive for academic and personal excellence, and recognize that diligence, effort and scholastic achievement generate positive self-esteem; students also understand that they are to abide by a code of conduct and that they are a main contributor to the school climate and culture.
Respect for Others
This comprises respect for the human and property rights of all others, respect for roles and legitimate authority in the school, home, community and country, and respect for the contributions of those more or less capable than oneself in given areas. Students will contribute in an orderly, disciplined and secure environment based on clear ethical principles. The ability for each student to exercise their right to an education in optimal conditions is paramount and the school will strive to uphold this right.
Respects for the Environment
Students are expected to care for and nurture the school environment and the resources made available to them.
Virtues – Character Education and Student Behaviour
Within the class and in the school, students will receive direct instruction related to Virtues and Character. Students are expected to participate in and demonstrate in their daily life the Virtues discussed and modeled in class. The goal is to nurture students who are self-disciplined, responsible and reflective about their behaviours and actions.
Homework Policy for TLC
It is the student’s responsibility to know what homework the teacher has assigned and to ensure that it is completed on time. Homework assignments will vary in length. This is an average guideline for the time students should dedicate to homework. It is important that students have a quiet, supervised area in which to complete their homework.
- Grades 4, 5 & 6: 15-20 minutes per evening
- Grades 7, 8 & 9: 30-60 minutes per evening
