Hands On Learning at Sudbury Catholic Summer School
What are you doing this summer?
Students at the Sudbury Catholic District School Board are sharpening their skills in literacy and numeracy with hands on learning and aboriginal teachings. Students begin the program with an assessment to confirm their level of proficiency and then work towards improvement for three weeks. This is the fifth summer camp run by the school board and each year students show a marked improvement from the first day until the last. This camp has helped students with the “summer learning losses” that happen each year for all students in Ontario schools. Research shows that over the summer months students loose some of the gains they made throughout the year. This three week intense program helps combat the summer loss.
