Students take part in Genius Hour

February 02, 2016

Main.JPGEvery Tuesday students in Collage of photos deplicting Genius HourMrs. Cuthbert-Brown's grade 5/6 class participate in Genius Hour. It is a time when students are permitted to inquire about whatever it is they want to explore, learn, or create; a time when they learn about what interests them, their passions, and take control of their own learning. Genius Hour projects can vary from a student inquiring about how write a book to a student investigating learning how to code a video game. During Genius Hour, Mrs. Cuthbert-Brown's goal is that, with the implementation of student inquiry and choice, students will become more actively engaged within their learning in the classroom. 

  • Discipleship

    We accept the call to be imitators of Christ by embracing the Beatitudes through authentic witness at the school, community, and global levels. Rooted in our commitment to transmit our Faith and Catholic tradition, we are inspired to build communities dedicated to the formation of young people who recognize their gifts and responsibilities to contribute to the transformation of the world into a more just and loving society for all.

  • Scholarship

    We believe that each student, made in the image and likeness of God and being hope for the future, can be engaged in their learning and achieve at high levels with appropriate supports. We are committed to ensuring that the potential of each student is realized through the achievement of ambitious outcomes and improving in their learning to the highest possible level.

  • Stewardship

    We embrace our responsibilities for the prudent and judicious use of the resources we have been allocated. In our context, we are committed to the development and growth of all employees, responsible and accountable practices and our call to care for all of God's creation.
