Connected to the Community

There are three separate aspects that make a school a community school:

Connected to the Community

    1. Location near heart of community;

    2. Ties with businesses, organizations, recreational amentities etc. to extend the school’s learning potential;

    3. School designed to a welcoming place for the community.
