We, at École Arthur Meighen School, believe
• Our primary role is to educate in partnership with staff, students, family and community.
• In respect for each other, self and the environment.
• Communication is essential.
• That children should develop respect for learning (work ethics/value of education).
• Students need learning opportunities to achieve goals in life.
• Learning occurs best when students are actively involved and enjoy what they are doing.
• Learning is a life long process that includes all facets of an individual’s growth and is not
necessarily just school based.
• Learning should take place in a safe environment (physical, social and emotional).
• Learning is a co-operative effort involving school, family and community.
• Learning is facilitated when subject matter is presented in many different ways.
• Teaching should be at the students’ level.
• Teaching should be a shared process.
• Teaching facilitates the learning process.
• Teaching should take place in a safe environment (physical, social and emotional).
• Teaching involves skill and flexibility.
