Flexible Learning

Flexible learning classes occur three times a week. These lessons are specially tailored to the individual needs of the students and any areas of interest or talent that motivates them. The teacher negotiates a balance between what the school believes needs extra attention and what the student would like to do.

The students are participating in activities such as:

  • cooking classes
  • handwriting lessons
  • woodwork projects
  • outdoor activities
  • gardening
  • extra reading classes
  • learning to ride a bike
  • learning an instrument

One of the strengths of this program is that students have the opportunity to have some control over what they do and this increases motivation and positive behaviour patterns.
