Through the Project Citizen curriculum, our students use cooperative learning to select a public policy problem, research the problem, identify options, select a policy to advocate, and develop an action plan to address the problem.

Typically the Project Citizen’s action plans involve our students in working with policymakers, the community, elected members and other authorities to adopt their public policy. Through these projects, students gain the knowledge, skills and attitudes of good citizenship while also benefiting their communities.

We established Professional Learning Communities (PLC) to promote the wellbeing of our students through the reinforcement of positive behaviour both in the school and its surroundings.

Recently our school established a PLC that includes parents, NGO leaders, community members and the school principal to promote school violence prevention. We started holding regular meetings to discuss the role of citizenship education to prevent school violence and support positive behaviour inside and outside the classroom.

In this session we will share how we achieved this.
