Current Issue

 

When I was growing up, I remember a new student coming to our school coverwho had transferred from another in the district. It was a big deal to cross boundary lines, with applications and approvals to complete.

Now the options for parents and kids seem endless: public and independent schools, specialty schools, learning centres, and homeschooling. More than ever, it’s important as a parent to educate ourselves about what is out there and what the best choice is for our kids.

We’re proud each year to present our annual Education issue. As we do with each issue, we sit and plan each piece around issues and topics that we, as parents, are interested in learning more about.

This time we are talking about Girls Learning Code, and why this is so important for the future of our economy and our kids. We explore the topics of no grades in school – why the decision has been made, and how it will work. We talk to local experts about students with ADHD and how they can be best supported in the classroom and at home, and we’re sharing what we learned about outdoor education and how many educators are recognizing the benefits of learning in nature.

Education expands beyond the classroom too, and we know field trips are really important to the whole development of a child. We’ve got a guide in this issue with some great ideas to explore in your own backyard, and beyond.

Schools don’t function now without some fundraising, and sometimes you just don’t want do another car wash! We have rounded up some great alternatives to earn some extra cash for the PAC, field trips, or sports equipment at your school.

We hope you discover as much from this issue as we did. Always keep learning!
