Lafarge Learning curriculum lets students get creative

Sep 12, 2018Education Initiatives

The Lafarge Learning: Alberta Rocks & Minerals Program, developed in partnership with Canmore Museum & Geoscience Centre, initiated a Poster Contest during the 2017-18 school year, so students can share what they learned in a fun and imaginative way. The initiative was a huge success with over 150 submissions. Posters were placed outside the Museum during the Canmore Farmer’s Market, so community members could actively vote. Winners received a lunch pizza party and goodies for their class.

The Lafarge Learning: Alberta Rocks & Minerals Program had a successful second year. Every grade three class in the Bow Valley took part: Elizabeth Rummel School, Our Lady of the Snows, École Notre-Dame des Monts, Alpenglow, Banff Elementary School, Exshaw School, and Nakoda Elementary School. The program was also attended by the Louis Riel School from Calgary. A total of 316 students participated over the 2017-18 school year alongside 80 teachers, education assistants and parent volunteers.
