By taking part in the Canadian network of 62 Associated Schools Project Network (ASPnet) schools, and conducting pilot projects, we have the opportunity to make significant contributions to improve the quality of education at our school by reinforcing four pillars:

  • Learning to Know;
  • Learning to Do;
  • Learning to Be, and
  • Live with each other
