  • Renovation Update!

    by Ann Gilmore | Jan 20, 2016

    The end is in sight for the construction at Stamford!  The newly renovated side entrance - with a beautiful glassed in vestibule - is due to be completed by the end of February. 

    Students will have an over-sized lobby to socialize in during the lunch hour - with new double doors leading to the cafeteria. The cafeteria will now be flooded with natural light from a bank of windows along the roof line.  Students will also enjoy new cafeteria seats, a newly renovated Resource Room and a wheelchair ramp leading into Guidance.

    And, most importantly, parents will have a direct hallway leading the main office.  No more getting lost in the various stairways and side halls! 

    Here is a look back at the old entranceway:


    Here is a sneak peak at the renovations:

  • FNMI Students & Their TIS Project

    by Ann Gilmore | Dec 03, 2015

    Over the past two days, twelve of our students have participated in the second phase of the TIS (Trauma Informed Schools) project.  This part involved students participating in a FNMI (First Nations Metis and Inuit) perspectives workshop and in creating a youth directed tool kit to address how schools and communities can play stronger roles in creating safe and accepting environments for Indigenous students and families.

    Our students identified 3 messages that they wished to address:
    • Inform/ Understand the trauma
    • "What's up" / I exist   (accept that I'm here)
    • Include our culture (it matters)

    They addressed these messages in the following ways:

    Inform/ Understand the trauma: 
    Some students created a series of memes, explaining Indigenous history. Others created a Prezi presentation. One student is in the process of writing and recording a song.

    What's up/ I exist
    Students created their own water colour representation.  Others created a slide show from a series of images drawn on a white board tablet.  One student created a meme - while another created an ad.

    Include our culture
    One student created a diorama of an outdoor medicine wheel garden; another created a diorama of an indoor classroom space.

    Many thanks to all who helped make these two days successful!!
