New Curriculum and Academic Programs


September 2022 is the start of a New Curriculum journey for Kindergarten to Grade 6.  Starting in the 2022-2023 school year Kindergarten to Grade 6 students will learn a new provincial curriculum in:

  • Physical Education and Wellness (K-6)
  • English Language Arts and Literature (K-6 only)
  • Mathematics (K-3 only)

Our classrooms remain spaces of faith-based learning that deeply engage all staff and students.  ECSD has a strong history of fostering deep learning experiences for our students with a foundation in literacy and numeracy.  We are prepared for the upcoming changes and have been working with our staff to ensure they are supported.  The curriculum might be changing, but good teaching and learning will remain paramount!
