Inclusive Education at SFX

posted Nov 16, 2018, 10:01 AM by Sarah Schildknecht

We’ve been busy! The students from the Inclusion group at SFX have had a great start to the school year.

In the classroom students have been cooking, helping with staff lunches, making desserts and learning new kitchen skills.

In the tech room, students have been working on pop bottle rockets and building bridges.

Students continue to strengthen artistic skills by completing beautiful work of art.

In Science, students explored acids and bases doing experiments with litmus paper.

In Language, students wrote meaningful autobiographies. They also explore current events, important historical events and are strengthening their skills around financial literacy (estimating, money, wages).

Many students also enjoy a variety of fitness activities during physical education class.

Besides the many great experiences in different classes every day, students have also had many opportunities to go out in the community. We have been to the Butterfly exhibit at Carleton University, the Special Olympics Rugby Jamboree, downtown through the market on the photography trip and to the Ottawa 67's game day. Some students also had work experience outings at Montana’s restaurant. Last week, students also met their Best Buddies. This program allows students to meet each week at lunch and strengthen their social skills.

We look forward to many more great opportunities both within the school and out in the community. (Judy Silenu, Inclusion Teacher)
