Imagination is the seed of greatness
Roslyn’s approach to learning recognizes how important it is for students to be engaged and inspired by their environment, and their abilities. While fulfilling the ministry mandated curriculum within its French Immersion Program, students are also encouraged to partake in a wide range of enriched subjects.
Every year, Roslyn strives to provide students with various enrichment opportunities. The Resource team works closely with the homeroom teacher to help children who need an extra little push, or to engage children who need more challenges or any subject area using the two-table model. Furthermore, in partnership with Concordia University, workshops will be offered to students in the field of engineering.
For this academic year, we will hold student workshops to promote student empathy and kindness. In addition, Roslyn school will be partnering with different organizations that can help promote mindfulness that can help students cope with the stressors they encounter on a daily basis. There seems to be no limit to the interests and enthusiasm of our students.
Students attending Roslyn may participate in a wide variety of extra-curricular activities which help to support their mental and physical health and meets their interests. The Roslyn Physical Education Team offers intramural activities during lunch time such as basketball and open gymnasium sessions, as well as the junior and senior field day, Terry Fox run and Jump Rope for the Heart. They also do a great job of organizing activities with the Greater Montreal Athletic Association (GMAA) consisting of cross-country run, basketball jamboree, the Futsal tournament and the Halo Race. The Roslyn Home & School organization, HandS, offers a variety of afterschool and lunchtime activities organized by HandS with the focus of meeting students' individual interests and providing them with academic enrichment (see below) and movement exercise opportunities.
