Engaging a community, together

Personalization of learning, through interdisciplinary thinking and utilizing Big Ideas, promotes deeper levels of student understanding within all subjects, including Arts Education.

The Arts continue to engage students in learning that is active and allows for deeper understanding of the subject matter.

The strength of community within our school district's Arts Education programming, including Artists for Kids, and Band and Strings, fosters a strong sense of belonging for our students that begins with the positive relationships established with our educators.

We see clearly the school district’s Social and Emotional Learning continuum enables student engagement and enhanced learning, with an emphasis on creating strong relationships and community.

All District Arts Education programming creates a bridge that supports our students to develop the knowledge, skills and self-confidence as learners beyond their school environment, while building positive, engaged communities to support multiple career options for our students.

Educators and students immersed in the Arts are enriched by honouring and incorporating the First Peoples Principles of Learning within their daily practice placing community and respectful relationships as a priority.

An appreciation of how individual differences make our lives more meaningful, and the ability to share and celebrate these differences, continues to be the foundation of the Arts.

An Arts Education continues to provide all learners multiple entry points and adaptations to find success and a sense of belonging.
