On Monday, November 30, staff from across the Louis Riel School Division (LRSD) came together for day of professional development. The day began with greetings and a message of hope from Kunsi Pahan, a member of LRSD’s Council of Grandmothers and Grandfathers. Louise Johnston, Chair of LRSD’s Board of Trustees, also shared a message of encouragement and was a part of the morning of learning.
The professional learning theme was about quality teaching and learning in the context of the pandemic from keynote speaker Brenda Augusta
. The session covered topics such as collaboration, technology, well-being, building community and student engagement.
Building on lessons learned from the remote learning experience in the spring of 2020 and the creation of the Learning from Home School/L'École Apprendre-chez-soi, school communities spent the afternoon planning for a potential move to Critical (Red). Our learning and preparing of the next steps will continue at LRSD’s next professional development day on Monday, December 7.
