The purpose of the Learning House Program is to provide quality educational support, nutritional snacks and advocacy to the schools on behalf of the students.
Our goal is to provide a structured and safe environment, which promotes responsible behaviour, respect to others and a positive attitude for all students and staff. Students focus on homework, reading, writing, math and group activities. By using the motto R.R.I.C.H.H., the After-School Program has helped to successfully motivate the children, teach teamwork, instill values and inspire students to become “Role Models,” demonstrating the attributes of Respectfulness, Responsibility, Independence, Cooperation, Helpfulness and Honesty.
We are fortunate to have two certified teachers on staff and experienced and trained teacher assistants. We have also partnered with practicum students from the Nursing and Educational Departments of University of Victoria. We have also been a part of the STEM Project (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Outreach Program), through the Department of Science and Aboriginal Affairs at the University of Victoria. Other individuals, just as important, have volunteered on a regular basis and have developed strong, healthy relationships with our students, parents and staff.
