BIENVENUE AU COLLÈGE BÉLIVEAU
Le Collège Béliveau est une école d'immersion française de la 7ième à la 12ième année qui reçoit des élèves de l'École Guyot, de l'École Henri-Bergeron, de l'École Howden, de l'École Provencher et de l'École Van Belleghem. La communauté d’apprenants du Collège Béliveau a comme mission d’outiller ses élèves afin qu’ils puissent réussir et devenir des citoyens responsables et bilingues.
Collège Béliveau is a Grade 7 to 12 French Immersion centre that employs 52 teaching and non-teaching staff. We are a diverse community that draws its population from five schools: École Guyot, École Henri-Bergeron, École Howden, École Provencher and École Van Belleghem. The mission of our learning community is to nurture all students to become successful, bilingual learners and responsible global citizens.
GRADE 7 & 8 PRACTICAL ARTS CLASSES
This is a reminder that students in Grades 7 and 8 will be starting their 3rd term of Practical Arts classes as of February 4th, which means that they will be attending new classrooms and meeting new teachers. Please refer to the attached schedule to ensure that your child is at the appropriate school on the day of his or her Practical Arts class. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the office.
As is often the case, students new to Collège Béliveau, particularly those in Grades 7 and 8, find it overwhelming to adjust to the changes in their transportation to and from school. To assist families with this challenge and to accommodate the large volume of students being transported to school from Island Lakes and Norwood Flats, Winnipeg Transit offers a School Charter bus to and from Collège Béliveau in both the morning and afternoon. Students travelling from Royalwood can take the #96 Winnipeg Transit bus (leaving Shorehill at Wildfire at 7:50 a.m.) to the busstop at Lakewood at Bishop Grandin (Stop 50634) and then transfer to the School Charter bus coming from Island Lakes at approximately 8:04 a.m. Each school charter is clearly indicated on the bus and will transport only public school students. Please refer to the attached Charter Bus Schedule to assist you in planning for your child's transportation to school. If you have any questions, please contact the office at (204) 255-3205.
LRSD 21st CENTURY LEARNING INITIATIVE
Today's students need preparation for the world beyond the K-12 environment and must be able to demonstrate the skills demanded for life in the 21st century. Educators are responsible to ensure that all students make successful transitions from high school to work, college or university. Regardless of their paths following their studies in the Louis Riel School Division, all young people will interact with technology. At Collège Béliveau, our goals to support our students with the upcoming 21st Century Learning Initiative include:
Increasing students’ knowledge and understanding in all curricular areas by allowing students to use highly effective tools in the classroom;
Enhancing the skills students need to live successfully in the 21st century;
Optimizing the advantage of students’ ownership of—and readiness to use— personal technology devices to learn, communicate and collaborate in school;
Increasing students’ desire to learn beyond the school day.
In keeping with the LRSD 21st Century Learning Initiative, students in Grade 9 will be required to bring a student-owned device to class, beginning in September 2013. The LRSD 21st Century Learning Initiative booklet is a guide which provides answers to a number of frequently-asked questions as well information regarding the purchase of a laptop. Once you have gone over the document, please feel free to contact either Gilles Mousseau or Paula Meyer should you have any further questions or concerns.
