Together is a great place to be!

Together is a great place to be!

Together is a great place to be! This year brings many challenges to school, for both educators and students. More than ever, it is critical that we help build resiliency with youth. As we don’t know how long these uncertainties may continue for, we are doing our best to continue to include elements of our program that allow adolescents to flourish, including experiential learning and opportunities for independence building.

To kick off our history session this year, our Junior High Teachers organized an outdoor walking with the Oakville  Historical Society.  They provide excellent programming teaching students about Oakville’s rich history. Students will be able to tap into this information as we begin our history.

In the afternoon our students enjoyed Stand Up paddling with Wai Nui  O’Kanaka Canoe Club on the Sixteen Mile Creek, Downtown Oakville.  Our students enjoyed this mindful experience.
