    • - Instruction in the learning process itself
    • - Religious, academic, and technological instruction
    • - Integration of Catholic, Christian beliefs into the total learning experience
    • - Feedback on students’ proficiency and performance

 

How We Meet the Diverse Needs of Our Students
 
Daily prayers, liturgies, masses, mission projects, Advent, Christmas, Lenten and Easter activities are some of the public manifestations of our Catholicity.
 
The visible externals such as religious murals, papal flag, crucifixes, icons and prayer centres indicate to students, parents, staff and visitors our Catholicity.
 
Ongoing activities involving building bridges, peace education and peer mediation enhance the Catholic dimension.
 
Safe arrival procedures are in place and a code of behaviour for all students has been approved by parents and staff.
 
New and innovative programs related to technology are envisioned. Staff has been in-serviced in a new school wide mathematics program. Computer activity is being increased as additional funds are expended, and staff take both formal and informal upgrading programs.
 
Staff have developed social studies and science school plans for all grades and grade combinations from level 3 to level 8.
 
Program outcomes are designed to meet the learning needs of the students collectively and individually. Techniques such as employing peer tutoring, cooperative learning, small group instruction, cross divisional tutoring and team teaching allow for beneficial program modifications.
 
The specialized talents and resources of the teacher librarian, English as a second language and special education staff are employed to assist all staff, students and parents.
 
Activities such as video club, chess club, instrumental music, computer club and drama club, provide opportunities for enrichment and learning in areas of personal interest.

 

 Many of the diversified needs of our students are met by agents and agencies representing Catholic Children's Aid Society, Toronto Board of Health, Earlscourt, Toronto Art Therapy Institute and Student Services Personnel.
