To make educational equity systemic and enduring, we must do more than engage our schools; we must redesign, align, and integrate all the community services that support children and families
Join us for a Visioning Session! Engage with leading architects and community development experts who will look at the future of education and the potential for sustainable, community-connected learning, recreation and economic well-being in Sackville.
Let's move towards a process where those who will use a school facility—educators, parents, students—provide the input for school design, location and features unique to the local community. Douglas Park School in Regina is an example that can inspire this process.
Are you interested in education in Sackville? Please join the Mayor of Sackville on Thursday, April 27 for a public discussion about education. This event will focus on NB's 10-Yr Education plan and what that means for Sackville's schools. Key speakers include Chris Treadwell, Assistant Deputy Minister of Education and Early Childhood Development, and Gregg Ingersoll, Anglophone East School District Superintendent.
What if we were able to take the elements of the basic educational transaction and rearrange their order? Would the revised order have any implications as to how a school might be organized? Hmmm?
A vision of community hub schools with innovative curriculum developments and delivery is not some fantastical dream. Here in Sackville and across the province, educators are beginning the shift toward experiential learning and outdoor education. We must celebrate it, systematize it, and facilitate more movement toward a 21st century education to prepare our children for a changing world.
