Our Learning Story

September 2021-

École Belgo Elementary is currently enrolling approximately 310 students for the 2021-2022 school year.  Approximately 100 of our learners are enrolled in the English Program (K to grade 5), while the others are enrolled in the French Immersion Program (K to grade 6).​

 We continue to support our students with their social emotional wellbeing at a classroom level and as a school. As a school, we have begun a new chapter in our story. Looking at our data, we feel that it is important to support our readers so that they can be more successful.  

As a starting point, we are increasing  student access to good-fit books for all readers. We brought all of our levelled books to one centralized location. This includes more choice on what to read, providing access to all levels for all children. 

The Reading Goal Committee has spearheaded some initiatives to make reading more visible at Belgo and to find fun ways to promote and foster a joy of reading for the Belgo Bears. 

Please check out our Evidence of Learning section for some more specific information.​


For several years, we have been learning about social emotional learning and helping students develop self-regulation skills in order to increase academic success and enhance emotional learning. Teachers engaged in small group inquiries around this topic, and developed a better understanding of strategies to support their well being as adult learners, and our students’ well-being.  We put in place strategies to continue to support all students with their social emotional learning.  We benefited from the help of different district teams, and along with the leadership of our school counselor, we created a dedicated space in the school which students can access to take a few moments to apply learned strategies and return to the “Green Zone” (where they feel ready to learn).  In order for students to be able to effectively use the space, they had to learn not only about emotions, feelings, triggers, etc.; they also had to develop the ability to reflect and self-assess.  Staff and students worked together to increase their social emotional competencies.

Social emotional competencies help students and adults be happy at school, and in other settings

In the fall of 2020, time and energy will be dedicated to “checking” our progress and possibly scanning our community once again to determine where to go from here.
