MOOSE JAW, SK

The right book, in the hands of the right child can be life-long transformation.

This becomes particularly true for children of diverse backgrounds. Such is the case at St. Agnes which has over 60 single parent households and 74 students with English as an Additional Language, offering both breakfast and reading clubs to support the needs of its students. For my own son with Apraxia ( a neurological disorder that impacts his ability to speak), this support can be as simple as having access to the one dinosaur book he hasn’t read yet as a way to support his language skills. The needs of St. Agnes’s students are coupled with the deep engagement of its educators, utilizing the resources at hand to enrich the learning of their students.

Having personally witnessed the success of a school who participated and won 2nd prize in Indigo’s ‘Adopt-a-School-Program’, up to date library resources are a necessity in any elementary school, but even more profound when unique needs are present. St. Agnes is a school that proves itself worthy in both its student population, but also through the character of its educators and programs.

Blast from the Past!

The Grade 8 class took part in opening a time capsule today. After searching through some of the storage in the school over the summer the Grade 8 teacher uncovered this time capsule that was to be opened in 2015! Both staff and students were excited to see some of the memorabilia that revealed what life was like a short few years ago. There were a variety of news articles, letters from students, and the teachers favourite, a cassette tape with some of the best hits from 93-96! We hope they are inspired to create a time capsule of their own.
