Linwood School, we recognize the importance of community support in
education. Feeling like you belong is one of the most
important things for a child in school. Each child comes to school with
their own family journey, personal strengths, and needs, so our school
focus starts with the wellbeing of each individual child in mind.
Offering our students daily opportunities to make
numeracy and literacy learning relevant to real life questions starts
them on a path to active global citizenship. At school, relationships
with students are the foundation for their engagement, success, and
happiness. Working together with our community to
nurture that environment ensures that all students have a sense of
safety, belonging, and success. Families are the experts in our
students’ lives. Linwood’s unique community encompasses great potential
in its diverse cultural and family experiences. The school
benefits from more than 100 years of community history and a unified
support network; a network that students, families, and staff members
can use to collaborate and develop strategies that improve all students’
academic and social-emotional growth. Working
in the Linwood community with staff members that bring empathy,
patience, kindness, and expertise to school each day will help us all to
take advantage of our collective strength.
The Linwood School community acknowledges that we are on Treaty One land, the traditional territory of the Cree, Anishinaabe and Dakota peoples and home of the Métis Nation.
