5. Education

school

We are proud of our K-12 school which has an excellent group of enthusiastic and community-spirited teachers, provides child-centered learning for 170 students, and encourages parent involvement in the school program. The Kenaston School has recently been enlarged and features, along with the standard classrooms, a computer lab with high speed internet access, an industrial arts room (including drafting, welding, and carpentry), a home economics lab, and a large gymnasium with a stage. We are also very proud that the Kenaston School is a Distance Learning Center.

The kindergarten room has its own bathroom facilities. The school playground is complete with trees, grass, and up-to-date playground equipment.

The school architecture accommodates special needs students with electric doors and wheelchair accessible entrances. The curriculum is adapted to meet the needs of children with a variety of learning challenges.

The Kenaston Co-op Play School program is housed in the school. Although operated independently of the school, it accesses the school environment and gives the preschool children an opportunity to feel comfortable in the school before they are required to be there. As play school helpers, their parents are given the opportunity to feel that they are partners in their child's education from the very beginning.

The Kenaston School offers a program providing International Students the opportunity to become more fluent in the English language in a rural environment, while at the same time offers our students an opportunity to participate in global learning. This program endeavours to foster appreciation for the enrichment that is achieved through the celebration of cultural diversity. The Kenaston School is part of the Sunwest School Division. More information is available at their website http://www.sunwestsd.ca.
