Celebrating Growth in BC’s “Core Competencies”
Students’ took home a clear duotang today that contains some of the explicit work on core competencies we have done this year. They have been asked to tell you about some of the activities they did this year, and how that activity connects with a core competency. The government has identified these skills as essential for learning and living in a meaningful way. In grade three, we are calling them “skills to succeed”.
Please take time to show interest in, read and celebrate your child’s self-assessment. Focus on recognizing strengths together, rather than any weaknesses. For more information about the Core Competencies, please visit https://curriculum.gov.bc.ca/competencies.
