Seven Award Winning School Programs Recognized For Their Potential To Change Learning

Canadian educators who weren't afraid to change the traditional school day model are honoured with the 2014 Ken Spencer Award for Innovation in Teaching and Learning.

An ambitious group of Canadian educators are changing the culture of school by working tirelessly to provide their students with the space to follow their passions and contribute to the development of their own learning pathways - in the process, these learners have become way more engaged.  

This year's Ken Spencer Award winning programs leverage teacher expertise beyond their subject areas to provide inquiry based real-world learning that takes the classroom outside school walls. Many of these programs involve regular teacher collaboration that focuses on motivating students at risk of not completing school, while others blend indigenous teachings with 21st century learning. They all demonstrate a common commitment to the quality of the relationship between teacher and student.

Social Justice Club Represents Oskayak at Race Against Racism

  • By Stanley Tu'Inukuafe

Members of the Social Justice Club participated in the Saskatoon Police Service's "Race Against Racism" on Saturday, September 21st in Victoria Park. In the photo, students Octavia, Mafis, Heavenly and Heaven show off the awesome banner they made for the event. Unfortunately, the banner was blown apart not long after this picture was taken, thanks to some strong winds. All proceeds from the race went to the Saskatoon Food Bank, and the school's group managed to raise an impressive food donation in lieu of registration fees.

It was a beautiful morning for a run (or walk, as everyone chose to do), and the three-kilometre route along the river went by quickly. The students were joined by Rachel, Stan and his family, some of the school's mentors, and myself. Afterward, we all claimed our race packs (Free water, granola bars and a temporary gym pass in a free mini-backpack? Sweet, thanks!), and enjoyed the multicultural entertainment at the grandstand. Check out my video footage from the race, and consider joining us next year!

menatwork.pngCAUTION:  MEN WORKING

If you haven't noticed, our media lab looks a little different this year.  We have new countertops from the renovation upstairs, making it a first class media lab.  On Thursday and Friday, there will be electricians completing the last part of the reno, adding the electrical and network wiring. The media lab will be closed at this time for safety reasons.  Please do not enter the lab at this time.
