School Story in Action 2023-2024 

 October 19, 2023 


Each week we will try to share part of our School Story and how it applies to our community’s daily learning. Our School Story continues to be based on the Core Competencies found in the BC Curriculum. This year, we are going to add the First People’s Principles of Learning as a lens through which we create a supportive environment for all.  


 An Introduction to the First People’s Principles of Learning  


 The First Peoples Principles of Learning describes a set of learning principles specific to First Peoples. These were articulated by Indigenous Elders, scholars, and knowledge keepers to guide the development of the curriculum created by the BC Ministry of Education and First Nations Education Steering Committee. 

 They represent an attempt to identify common elements in the varied teaching and learning approaches that prevail within particular First Nations societies. It must be recognized that they do not capture the full reality of the approach used in any single First Peoples’ society. 

 From The First Nations Education Steering Committee 




In the coming weeks, we look forward to sharing how the First People’s Principles of Learning is used a lens to guide our teaching practices and activities as well as the school-wide activities that allow us to embody and live our School Story.
