Two More Curriculum Videos
This year, we produced short documentaries about each specialty subject and these were shared following Curriculum Night. The specialty teachers described their program and the videos allowed you to glimpse into the early days of the program.
We now have the Primary French and Physical Education videos ready to share with you:
A special thank you to Zach Pedersen of the JICS Robertson Program for creating these wonderful mini-documentaries with our teachers!
