Board Highlights - May 10, 2018

  1. A student delegation from Margaret Wooding School presented on promoting a culture of learning, understanding, and growth at their school.  The presentation included information on numeracy interventions, digital technology, student leadership, and celebrations of learning – Passion Projects.  The four student presenters talked about what they learned, building confidence, the power of persuasion and passion, and how presentation methods can increase your audience / membership.
     
  2. The board approved updates to policies GP #6 Board Agenda/Monitoring, A225 Welcoming, Caring, Respectful and Safe Learning and Working Environments, and A305 Student Code of Conduct.  Changes to A225 and A305 reflect new provincial legislation and updates to the School Act.  The revisions are compliance items and do not reflect any significant changes to the way Prairie Rose School Division provides safe and caring environments for all students and staff.
     
  3. The board approved two outdoor field trips.  Irvine School grade 9 students will be participating in their annual Eco Adventures trip to Cypress Hills that includes zip lining and wall climbing activities.  South Central High School will also be traveling to the Cypress Hills to enjoy mountain biking, fishing and canoeing activities as part of their Outdoor Education programming option.
