​Learning Commons at the CBE

Today’s learners cannot imagine life without the internet and supporting technology. The concept of the traditional library is changing to include technology, online tools and spaces for collaboration and exploration.​​​

Learning Commons / Library

Thorncliffe School's Learning Commons is available for student book sign-out every morning and afternoon. The Learning Commons is also home to our Music Program in the mornings. In the afternoons, the Learning Commons is available for classroom or student use. Students have access to Macintosh desktop computers, a cart of twenty new Mac laptops, as well as iPads. Movable tables and portable technology make the space flexible and allow students and teachers to create working areas that are tailored to the demands of each learning task. Easy access to technology permits Thorncliffe students to personalize their learning, and to communicate in multiple ways.

Welcome back Thorncliffe Students! We hope you enjoyed winter break and your first day of online learning. January 8, is a PD day, so there will be no classes. We are excited to see students in person on January 11.

Students in the Grade 5 and 6 class are analyzing and finding patterns to start off their Patterns and Relations topic! https://t.co/ZkHhm2G1XZ

Our Grade 5 and 6 students created an encouragement and affirmation bulletin board for the students and staff. https://t.co/rvDg7keais

Our grade 1 & 2 Ss took on a leadership role and decorated the school tree. Was I ever surprised by their creativity! Who doesn’t love a giant peach as a tree topper? https://t.co/VcmGM1m22q
