At our recent Professional Day last Monday, teachers spent time learning more about BC Curriculum changes and Communicating Student Learning.
British Columbia’s curriculum is being redesigned to respond to the demanding world our students are entering. Transformation in curriculum will help teachers create learning environments that are both engaging and personalized for students. At the heart of British Columbia’s redesigned curriculum are core competencies, essential learning and literacy and numeracy foundations.

Terry Fox Donations
We are pleased to let you know that our school raised more than $460 in support of Cancer Research. Well done, GV!
Learning Commons News
The arrival of the 3D Printer in late June sparked a lot of excitement amongst the students at Georges Vanier Elementary. Just as our digital tools are used to create rather than consume, I encouraged my students to think about how we might design and print items that were useful, that had a purpose. Items had to have the power to enhance or improve or function as a tool to show learning.
