C13 – Fostering Self-directed, Lifelong, Resilient Learners
Presenter: Liz Gibson, Paul Cogghe, Pam Blondia, Clare Quinlan (St. Clair)
Description: Learn about our school’s journey to foster this Ontario Catholic Graduate Expectation in our students. We worked to provide opportunities to develop a culture built on Christ’s teachings. We engaged in activities that developed the whole child – a holistic approach to meet the many challenges for our students. Through our Collaborative Learning Space, monthly Wellness themes, rethinking engagement in mathematics and connecting our faith to the 7 Grandfather Teachings, we have explored many strategies to promote resilient, self-directed, lifelong learners.
