Learning Services


Learning Strategies is a support block for students in Grades 8 - 12 and is designed to help students who are experiencing difficulty in one or more academic areas and could benefit from targeted support. With Learning Support, students are taught to self-monitor their learning and to recognize and develop strategies to help themselves. Our goal is to develop students who grow into independent and confident learners who are aware of their strengths and areas for growth. 

Students will receive help understanding how they learn best, with academic skills, organizational skills and interpersonal skills. They will be introduced to a variety of learning strategies, including time management, goal setting, study skills, note taking, test taking, memory enhancement and reading, writing (communication) and mathematics/numeracy skills. Students will reflect on their growth in the Core Competencies and be assessed on their engagement and participation, cooperation, attendance, punctuality, organization, listening skills, and work habits. Students can be referred for Learning Services Support by their previous school, teachers or a counsellor.
