Celebrating Exemplary Practices
2011-2012 Award Winner
For the 13th year, Toronto Catholic District School Board acknowledged innovative projects and programs at TCDSB schools with the Exemplary Practice Awards, which took place on April 23rd. Among this year’s award winners was St. Bede Catholic School for its “7 Habits and Basketball” project.
The intermediate students at St. Bede embarked on a leadership journey that prepared them for what lies ahead. Using Covey’s 7 Habits, students were given the tools to navigate the wide world after elementary school.  Students interacted with an afterschool co-curricular program that involves Covey’s 7 Habits, literacy activities correlated to the text, discourse around the 7 habits and school life, combined with recreational basketball. Each student will be given a copy of Covey’s book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens. The development of student leadership and engagement is a fundamental goal. A certified teacher of the seven habits facilitated the program with the support of several staff members.
