65-226908-architectural-banner-imagesCongratulations to Ron and the boys on capturing a silver medal at provincials this weekend in Gravelbourg.  Ron was not sure how they would fair this year, but felt they’d be competitive, and competitive they were.  So ends another great volleyball season at Hepburn School, and now it’s on to basketball!

On Friday I had the opportunity to head over to Waldheim to see our grade 8’s working in the IA shop and Home Ec lab.  The kids were fully engaged in all sorts of different projects and each student was eager to share with me what they were creating.  While I was there, I had a chance to pop into a couple classrooms to see how teachers there have begun re-shaping their learning environments to become more student centered and noticed a lot of similarities between our two schools and where we are in our respective journeys.  Hopefully you continue to think of ways to keep your environment evolving to best suit the learning needs of your students.  Please have a look at the learning links for more information about learning environments.

A video about setting up a grade one room….how could this look in other grades?  What about senior subjects?
