Montessori in Japan

Posted on Nov 26, 2018

Our very own Yoshiko Barber has been promoting Montessori -- and our beautiful school -- since her first child was enrolled at our Oaklands campus over 20 years ago.  We regularly host groups of Japanese student teachers at Selkirk, and Yoshiko organizes an informative program for them, including classroom observations and hands on experience with the materials. This year, she's taken it to the next level!  In November, she had an opportunity to travel to OKU to make a presentation about our school to an even larger group.  Congratulations, Yoshiko!  You ROCK!!

Revitalization of the Checkerboard

Posted on Oct 1, 2018

It was the perfect day for a very enthusiastic group of volunteer parents and staff to tackle a clean-up on one of our favourite play spaces, Ceclia Cove Park...better known as the 'Checkerboard".  Ably led by parent Jennifer Jakobsen, the team spent three hours pruning, sweeping, digging, raking and  slashing.  A great team effort!
