Website Welcome Message – Elementary Section - Deputy Principal

During my career, I have witnessed many changes in education; these often reflect changes in the world we live.  As the world changes, so do the skills that our children need to be successful. Today our children require skills in creative and innovative thinking, in interpreting and understanding information and evaluating and applying this information, in problem-solving, in interpersonal skills, and in communication to be prepared for the challenges they will face in our ever-changing world.   By offering the globally recognized curriculum of the Ministry of Education, Ontario, Canada, Delia School of Canada students develop in all academic areas, including digital citizenship and literacy, as well as develop skills necessary for success at school and for their futures as contributing members of the global community.

In the Elementary Section of Delia School of Canada, learning occurs within and beyond the classroom as students interact with their peers and participate in classroom activities, curriculum-based field trips, and extracurricular activities.  To further enhance the development of skills, the Elementary Section is introducing an experiential learning program for all students, Pre-Grade 1B through Grade 6 during the 2017 – 2018 school year.  EL@DSC activities are designed to provide students opportunities to challenge themselves and to grow as learners and as individuals.

We take pride in our multicultural learning environment as we welcome students from throughout the world.  Through daily interaction with students from around the world in the classroom, students develop an awareness of and appreciation for one another.  By building friendships that transcend borders, as is evident in the inclusive, cross-cultural communities that students create in their daily interactions with their peers, students gain an awareness of and appreciation for diversity, grow as individuals, and establish their roles as engaged, contributing members of the global community. 

Students thrive through participation in classroom and curriculum-based activities, and, outside the classroom, in extracurricular and experiential learning activities.  Students are encouraged to take an active role in their learning by taking advantage of all that is available to them in the Elementary Section’s inclusive learning environment.
