Pickering College - Learning For Life. Creating The Future.
Young students outside learning about nature

Enriched classroom learning

Within the curriculum, strong emphasis is placed on teaching public speaking and presentation skills. Students are provided with opportunities to communicate to small and large groups of students and adults, in formal and
informal settings. Most importantly, they speak about topics that motivate them to learn and they, in turn, inspire others with their enthusiasm.

Students have many opportunities to be involved in student leadership, including serving on the Junior School’s Student Committee, Green Team as well as through Learning Buddies and peer mentoring. Students act as
playground representatives and assist in lunch-hour clubs.

All students in the Junior School participate in the FIRST LEGO League (FLL), working together in small groups to design and build a Lego model using a motor and simple machine.
