Our Children are gone back into a public school. It’s the Middle River School that has only 2 class rooms. K-6 grade. The Middle River School is on the top 30 best schools in Canada. This school fosters a warm and genuine learning environment. They believe that each student is special and needs teaching, motivation and nurturing to foster his/her own individual talents. I did not count the total children but I think it’s around 23. A very tiny 2 room school is just perfect for me and our kids. Our son Liam is the only student in grade 6. He is also the oldest and tallest student.
This school also grows a garden.
The garden they grow is very important. The students take care of this garden and in the Fall they decide what they will make with the items they grow. They sell the products at the market to raise money for the school and a portion of the money will go to a child in need. The students also put together a meal for all parents. This helps the children learn to grow food, market the food or products they make, math skills are used and the joy of coming together as a family and community.
I am so happy that our children have such a wonderful school to attend.
