Lower Mainland school officials visit local district

Education-Matters---Betty-BaxterSchool District No.46 (Sunshine Coast) has worked over several years to share with other districts in the province our advances in early learning, aboriginal education and environmental education and to ensure that we are stretching to do our best in delivering quality education. It is gratifying to have other districts recognize excellent programs by coming to visit and learn from our staff and about our experiences.

This past month, district leaders from School District 38 (Richmond) and School District 36 (Surrey) arrived on the Sunshine Coast to learn more about our leading early learning programs. School District 35 (Langley) staff are visiting soon and School District 60 (Peace River) have inquired about our program “Spark 10!” that enables every grade 10 student on the Sunshine Coast to hear about early childhood development and spend quality time with early learners. Our Coordinator of Early Learning, Kirsten Deasey has presented at Ministry of Education and provincial trustee events.

On Feb. 25 and 26 School District 48 (Sea-to-Sky) and School District 47 (Powell River) trustees and staff will be here touring schools and local programs as part of the annual BCSTA South Coast Branch meeting.  They will also be treated to a student musical performance and hear about Mind-up: the mindfulness program expanding throughout the Coast thanks to the Roberts Creek Community School. It is wonderful to have the opportunity to celebrate the excellence in public education happening here and to share our ideas and successes with so many educators from around the province. If you see clusters of keen observers in our schools or touring with your trustees and staff, please stop to say hello and make them welcome!
