 Curriculum is more than just what our students learn. In fact, we believe that every experience from the moment that a child walks onto school property whether it is directly in the classroom, when they play on the playground with each other, what they see on the walls, in the materials made available to them and the relationships they build with each other and with adults- is curriculum.


At Aldergrove PS we follow an Inquiry Based approach to curriculum with an embedded social justice narrative. We have adopted this approach in order to foster authentic learning experiences through which our students will be able to see and understand how their learning in school can equip them to become dynamic, literate and compassionate world citizens. It is important to us that learning be relevant, engages their higher order thinking skills and allows them to take their learning and make a difference in their lives, families, community and/or the world.
As a staff, we want our students to make their thinking visible as they demonstrate and apply Higher Order Thinking Skills and think about how the learning is relevant to them and their lives.
In order to do so, we have adopted the following Social Justice strands. These are embedded in the learning opportunities extended to our students:
1. Self Love and Self- Knowledge
2. Respect for Self and Others
3. Exploring issues of Social Injustice
4. Social Movements and Social Change
5. Raising Awareness
6. Taking Action
These learning opportunities will create and shape future generations of Canadian citizens who will continue to make amazing contributions to our local and international societies.
