Exploring the NEW K-9 Curriculum

How will the NEW Curriculum affect what your child is taught, and how your child will learn? Will your child learn the skills he/she will need to be successful in the 21st Century?

The redesigned curriculum will transform the BC Education system as we move towards deeper learning and cross-curricular competencies such as Critical Thinking, Creative Thinking, Communication and Social and Personal Responsibility.

Exploring the NEW K-9 Curriculum – Burnaby Central, Nov 27, 7 pm
