Student First

StudentFirstThe purpose of this Provincial Initiative is to help unify and reorient the provincial education system on what matters most - the student. Through public engagements, Student First will help the education system meet the targets identified in the Plan for Growth, while addressing local priorities, and bringing them together into one plan for action.

Student First is also about shining a spotlight on the pockets of excellence that currently exist. There is likely not a challenge in education that someone has not already tackled somewhere in Saskatchewan.

More information is available HERE.

Vanier Gets Learning Supports for 21st Century Learners

ChromebookHoly Trinity Catholic Board has approved a Vanier Chromebook Initiative beginning in the 2014-15 school year.

At the June 9th Holy Trinity Catholic School Division Board meeting, the Board approved a motion to provide every grade 9 student a Chromebook as of September 2014.

Key features of the Chromebook Initiative are:

  1. Students are digitally connected and use technology primarily for communication and entertainment.  There is greater potential to use students’ technology skills for learning.
  2. There is an interest at Vanier to embark on a grade nine collaborative inquiry-based learning venture that would provide students with learning opportunities using Chromebooks.
  3. This initiative will help prepare students for future learning and working careers which rely on a level of expertise in the use of technology for learning.
  4. Why Chromebooks?  Chromebooks are inexpensive, have a long battery life and fast charge (6-8 hours battery life); and are always up-to-date, there is no software to purchase, and they can provide access to electronic texts and novels. In short, they are a great option for learning.

Holy Trinity Catholic School Division and Vanier Collegiate Institute are excited about the potential learning opportunities associated with this initiative.

For further information please contact Lois Saunders or Brad Moser at Vanier Collegiate.
