  • Peter – PLS ADD
  • Peter:All students achieving their full potential – achievement matters, engagement matters, equity matters Relevant responsive education = students becoming lifelong learners All students are learning, all students are engaged in programs that meet their needs and interests and have access to the programs they desire
  • Peter:EXPLORATION:What does a school look like today?What should it look like in 10 years, 20 years or even 50 years from now?Those are the questions Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board has been asking. Over the past two years, hundreds of staff, students and community members have been involved in looking at the future of education in Hamilton, to find the answer.We want to ensure our students are prepared for the world today as well as a future we haven’t even thought of yet. With our economy shifting beyond our city, province and country, we need to redefine education for the 21st century.
