  • See current and future school-organized events

Seesaw - ELC and ES's Current Learning Journal
Used as a learning journal by all classes in the Early Learning Centre and Elementary sections of the school (EC2 to G5).
Google Sites - Static Information Hub for Parents in the ELC and ES
EC2 to G5 classes have dedicated Google Sites where general information is posted for the external community. This is a rather static hub, since announcements and other reminders are sent via Seesaw.
