Core & Explorations

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Core & Explorations

Our Grade 6/7 and Grade 8 Core classes are the home base for our students where they learn core academic subjects as well as French, Physical Education and Health & Career Education. Explorations classes provide students with hands-on learning experiences in DMA (Digital Media Arts), Music, Home Economics, Outdoor Education and Wellness, and Digital Literacy. Each student will spend approximately 7 weeks in each class. Explorations offers a wonderful opportunity for students to try out new skills and develop new passions that will help guide their course selections in high school.
