Our Learning Story
École Belgo Elementary is currently enrolling 345
students for the 2017-2018 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).
Each member of École Belgo Elementary is on an
individual learning journey; most are also part of collective learning
journeys. As a large learning community,
we started to work our way around the Spiral of Inquiry in order to identify
the focus of our next learning plan.
At this time, staff and students have been reflecting
on learning and on finding the most effective ways to seek input from students, parents,
and other staff members. We spent time
reflecting on the best questions to ask our students in order to gather
information, and we proceeded to do some scanning amongst our student body. A number of students were interviewed individually in order to gather their thoughts about their time at school and their learning. At
the end of the 2016-2017 school year, we also invited parents to provide us with their input through an online survey.
stated in the First People's Principles of Learning, learning takes patience and time. Currently, we are using our time to learn
more about what is happening at our school, and to learn about the process. In the fall, we look forward to using the
information collected to determine our next steps, and to working in teams to
continue to move the learning forward at our school.
