AWARDS of EXCELLENCE​--2015-2016


Celebration of Exemplary Practices The Innovative Exemplary Practice Awards showcase outstanding efforts within our Catholic school communities which address the diverse needs of our students. These projects serve as an inspiration for all schools within our system and we hope that our new portal link which archives these innovative projects will encourage the replication and further refinement of these practices.

St. Andre won  two exemplary practice awards for 2015-2016. Congratulations to all of our students and staff for all of their exemplary work!

St. Andrew, St. Roch, St. Stephen: Innovative Collaborative Learning Cultures--A group of principals in the same area and with similar school profiles decided to collaborate as a learning team to work on areas of critical need by way of collaborative inquiry, where all grade 7 & 8 teachers from all four schools as well as principals would study Mathematics for teaching to improve student achievement. In order to streamline efforts, they decided to make proportional reasoning the primary focus. Admirably, this initiative has served as a springboard for teacher networking and Principal dialogue focusing on enhancing numeracy instructional leadership.
