Community Focus Group Meetings -
Low Enrolment Secondary Schools

Beginning in January 2015, we will be holding a series of focus group meetings with secondary students, parents, teachers and principals from our smaller secondary schools and their respective elementary feeder schools.

These focus group consultations will be exploring the variety of methods that these small schools are already actively using to support programming for students. The groups also will consider how these schools can be further supported in the future.

All families throughout KPR have access to an exciting, online math game that elementary students can enjoy at home. Prodigy allows children to practice the math skills they learn in class in a fun, Pokemon-style video game.

The game has improved students’ confidence, abilities and test results in math, and earned rave reviews from the children. You can sign up for a free parent account at www.prodigygame.com

Canadian Apprentice Forum   Why the Trades?

When people think about the skilled trades, several immediately spring to mind – electrician, plumber, welder, carpenter, for example. But opportunities in the skilled trades are much more extensive: from hairstylist to cook, painter to landscaper, automotive service technician to crane operator – and so many more. Learn more about the trades.
