Collaborate Through Partnerships
Schools are most effective in addressing the needs of children and their families when school staff and the community partners work collaboratively. Collaborating in groups helps teachers share ideas, increases student achievement, creates a positive school climate and increases community involvement.
Amazing Love School students have been introduced to collaboration skills to help them learn together in small groups. This is helping students to develop higher level thinking, social interaction skills, communication skills and problem solving.
We have forged a partnership between the school, community, local government and educational authorities. We are now seeking to collaborate internationally with individuals and organizations that share the same vision. Areas of collaboration include:
- Education and Training
- Community Development
- Infrastructure Development
Connection with schools
Amazing Love School had the opportunity of connecting with Clara Hughes Public School in Oshawa in June 2016 and with Sir John A Macdonald Public School in Pickering in 2017. The projects were part of the inquiry projects where schools in Ontario partner with other schools and learn how to ask questions to students in another country.
The projects addressed reading, writing, oral communication, and social studies expectations in the Grade two and Grade four Ontario curriculum. The questions were about their interests, sports, school life, modes of transport, hobbies, and governments. In both cases, the students from Canada and Uganda were very excited about the exposure to the different cultures. Teachers also mentioned that they learnt a lot from these projects.
We welcome partners to work with us to make a difference.
