Warman Middle School Location

Warman Middle School will be attached to the Town of Warman Sport and Culture Village. The shape of the school will be different than the one in this diagram.

The Sport and Culture Village contains a skating rink and two soccer pitches. One of the soccer pitches will have three gymnasiums in it. Students will have opportunities to use these facilities.

We are excited about opportunities for students and the community due to the shared nature of this facility and we would like to hear from you about what you are looking forward to with this new combined facility.

21 century learner
Placing the student at the heart of the design means we need to understand the learners who are in our schools. Research shows that student learning styles have chnaged, therefore we need learning spaces to accomodate a new generation who:
* Prefer multitasking and quick, non linear access to information
*Are visually – oriented
*Are highly networked, interactive and social
* Increasingly mobile
* Have a low tolerance for lecture style teaching
*Prefer active learning rather that passive learning
*Rely heavily on commuications technologies to access inforamtion and to carry out social and professional interactions
