Learning Commons

What is a Learning Commons?

A Learning Commons is a common, or shared, learning space that is both physical and virtual.  A Learning Commons supports a student centred approach that emphasizes active and collaborative engagement and encourages the co-creation of knowledge by all learners.

September Start Up

September is always so exciting - so many new adventures ahead.  This year, as always, we will be talking alot about kindness.  We will start our year off reading I WALK WITH VANESSA by Kerascoet.  This is a beautiful story about a simple act of kindness.  We will be joining Peter Reynolds in his annual celebration of International Dot Day and making Dots with the message of how we will make the world a little kinder this year.  Make your mark and see where it will take you - THE DOT by Peter Reynolds -  over 10 million people world wide will be celebrating with us.  This year we are going to share great books, with great kids and celebrate literacy every single day.  Here's to the 2018/19 school year - it's going to be a great one!
