Rainbow Summer Learning Program helps to build literacy and numeracy skills

Approximately 190 students in Rainbow Schools are participating in the Summer Learning Program to maintain and increase their literacy and numeracy skills, and engage in exciting educational activities.

The Summer Learning Program takes place from 9 am to 2 pm at four Rainbow Schools until Friday, July 20, 2018 – Chelmsford Public School, Cyril Varney Public School, Lansdowne Public School and Little Current Public School, whose program runs from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm.

In the Summer Learning Program, children enjoy a balanced day of academics and recreation under the guidance of qualified teachers in a camp-like setting.

The program also includes a special focus on Indigenous perspectives and culture.

Students learn reading, writing and mathematics, and participate in physical activities, interactive games, field trips, and meeting visitors from the community.

In addition, students enjoy computer programming and robotics activities, which builds on the Board’s focus on 21st century teaching and learning.

This is the eighth year in which Rainbow District School Board offers programs during the summer to support and supplement student achievement in Grades 1 to 5.

The program is presented in partnership with the Council of Directors of Education (CODE) and the Ministry of Education.
