Presentations of Learning

Two grade 7 classes came together to make an impact on climate change. Students created documentaries representing cross curricular learning on the subject of climate change! The film festival happened today over two periods – and the learning was powerful, uplifting and inspiring – we can make a difference! Now we just have to do the math to see their total impact on reducing greenhouse gas emissions!

Summer is just around the corner; School will soon be out. Our children will change their routine from school life, to camp, grandparent house or lazy hazy summer days. Change can be challenging at any time and for anyone. Change can be especially hard for children with mental health challenges. How do you survive the summer when the kids ‘roam free’?
