St. David Catholic School Parent Involvement Leads to Greater Student Success and Well Being

February 27, 2012 - St. David Catholic School works diligently to involve parents and the community in the education of our youth. The school recognizes that student achievement increases when parents play an active role in their children's education, and that "good schools become even better schools when parents and community members become involved".
The grade 5/6 class at St. David worked with the staff at the Killarney Outdoor Education Center and with school parents and local Aboriginal Elders to allow the students to experience real life learning. Parents, community members, students and staff learned about traditional Aboriginal hunting and fishing practices, scientific states of matter and the food chain and it's relationship to biodiversity -- then they spent a day ice fishing. Although no actual fish were caught, parents were actively engaged in supporting their children's success at school. Parents and students were motivated to learn as a team, each supporting each other in an active hands on learning experience.
