New Learning Commons Ahead!

Screen Shot 2017-09-08 at 11.00.06 AM

We are very excited in the learning commons to be dreaming BIG!  Yes a new physical commons is being designed in the next year to accommodate all things literacy, MakerEd and technology!  This new physical commons will be part of the campus school building and will continue to be the warm and exciting hub of the blended school, where students feel at home reading, playing. learning, researching, making and socializing.

A few years ago we transitioned from a library to a library commons in virtual and physical space (albeit small).  As we dare to dream BIG, and envisage our new space our learning commons team would like to invite you to join in the planning by sharing your thoughts in this survey.

Thank you in advance for sharing in the survey.  We will share the results with you.

An Indigenous Perspective with Denise
 Tuesday, November 14th at 12. pm


Denise McLaughlin will explain an indigenous perspective, which will help us relate to indigenous peoples, and teach their unique perspective in meaningful and authentic ways.

Denise is Metis from Southern Ontario.  Her family’s lineage can be traced back to the Red River Settlement, now Winnipeg, Manitoba.  As an Indigenous person, Denise feels God has gifted her with a strong spiritual awareness and a heart for creation.  Denise graduated from The Indigenous Education Program at UBC. NITEP has a focus on Indigenous education and best education practices for teaching Indigenous curriculum.  Denise has lived and worked in remote First Nations communities and has connections in several Coast Salish communities.  She has also had the opportunity to attend Church services on reserve and has attended the Native Pentecostal Church.  Dr. Jo-anne Archibald’s teaching of story-work and Denise’s own experiences of sharing stories help to define her practice of building relationships and connections with students.

“I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t nurturing or caring for something”

– Denise McLaughlin
