Theme: Independent School
Age Group: Elementary
During their time at St. Joseph School, we would like teacher candidates to transform an empty classroom into a Makerspace in which students are provided with hands-on, creative ways to design, experiment, build and invent as they deeply engage in STEM activities, design and tinkering. This would be an area in which our exceptional learners can feel confident and successful as they learn through exploration. Some materials have already been purchased to incorporate into the room. A budget will be provided to purchase others items required.
Founded in 1938, St. Joseph Catholic School is home to over 250 students from Kindergarten through Grade 7. Children will receive a quality, faith-based education that emphasizes high academic standards and the virtues of kindness, honesty, and service. Our dedicated teachers embrace the philosophy of Whole Child Education and encourage students to think critically and creatively. St. Joseph School provides a supportive, caring, and safe environment where your children will be inspired to reach their full potential. As a Group 1 Independent School, St. Joseph follows the curriculum requirements set out by the BC Ministry of Education. In addition to these standards, we strive to enrich children’s learning experience through extra-curricular activities and expanded programming.
