Passion Projects

Another new initiative at Hillhurst School this year is “Passion Projects.” In the previous school year, a committee of teachers started planning for this initiative based on the question, “How can we connect our students as a school-wide community and increase their intellectual engagement?” 

Passion Projects give students an opportunity to broaden and deepen their learning while increasing engagement. Students have the opportunity to collaborate and work with students from different ages and classes from Grades 3-6. This enhances the sense of community at Hillhurst and also allows them to work with different teachers on staff. Some of the Passion Projects include: 

  • Scratch Coding Club
  • Chess Club, 
  • Foods
  • 3-D Printing Club
  • Photography Club
  • Robotics Club
  • Art Club

Passion Projects will continue to expand and grow as student interest does. Passion Projects take place from 11:00 AM -12:00 PM on a six week schedule.
