Summer School Learning at SCDSB


July 28, 2015 - School's out for summer? Not for almost 100 students with the Sudbury Catholic School Board. For three weeks these students are immersed in rich literacy, numeracy or aboriginal learning. It's a proven fact that students, in the summer, lose some of the learning from the school year. These students will have less of a gap and with a much smaller class size and a ratio of about one educator for every five students the hands on learning never ends. From learning phonics to learning coding skills students are excited to keep learning in the summer even after an entire school year. 
"As an educator, it is so rewarding when you hear students that are so excited to come back everyday!" said educator Lynsie Royer.
Pictured are student Paa and camp councillor Nick Kennedy who are using robotics to practice their literacy skills. Camp Councillor Nick says he can’t believe how much fun learning can be. "When we are using the robots, Dash and Dot, in the classroom the students are having so much fun that they don’t even recognize that they are learning"
