Teachers David Lyons and Katie Thurber from Lockeport Regional High School took a group of students to a WISE (Women in Science and Engineering) science retreat at Mount Saint Vincent University on April 13th. Students were engaged in a number of STEM workshops which include robotics and plant & animal cell activities, and they spoke with numerous female professionals and role models in STEM related careers.
Students in Grades 4 – 12 in the TCRCE will be completing a 2019 Student Success Survey at their school between now and May 10, 2019. This is an opportunity for them to have their voices heard to improve their schools.
This Survey is from the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development and will be done across the province to provide each school with important information regarding students experiences, which in turn will support developing student success plans. There are no right or wrong answers and student responses will not be used for evaluation purposes. The answers are also completely anonymous and will only be used as part of a group that does not identify individual students. Teachers will encourage students to answer the entire survey but students may skip any questions if they are uncomfortable answering.
If you have any further questions about this survey, please contact the school Principal.
