Furniture has been moved, field studies sought out, pencils sharpened … Welcome (back) to Alcuin for the year 2016-2017! Our teachers and staff are thrilled to have their students back, because it is for them that we do what we do, reimagining education every day.
Enjoy a 365° view of our Great Hall:
How My Hobby Changed My Life
Alcuin’s Hailey C., fifteen, loves to drink tea and read books. To Hailey, “regenerate” (the theme of this year’s TEXxKids@BC) means “to restart” or to “begin again.” Her talk was about how she regenerated her passion for reading books into opportunities in the publishing industry. It touched on how her hobby and passion for reading has helped her overcome depression.
She hopes her talk can inspire people never to give up their passion or hobby, no matter what people say. Very well done, Hailey!
“Teenagers learn best by doing things, they learn best in teams and they learn best by doing things for real — all the opposite of what mainstream schooling actually does.“

Skillful teachers adapt the course of study to how each student best learns, thinks and inquires. We comply with, and surpass, provincial requirements to produce well-rounded graduates equipped for university and lifelong learning.
