Preparing for High School – OLPS Senior Learning Hub

OLPS is committed to preparing our students for High School. Our Senior Learning Hub is designed to provide learning experiences and challenges that prepares students for High School.  The Deep Learning curriculum is an opportunity for students to engage in projects to foster deep learning so they can contribute to the common good, address global challenges and flourish in a complex world while developing valuable learning skills and competencies needed for High School. We are proud of our contemporary learning environments where students are excited to lead, learn and enjoy the many opportunities open for all.

Our Year 6 students enjoy the many traditions which they have watched during their junior years including a wonderful graduation and farewell, leadership roles and camps. Our students all excel in High School, as they display a readiness and confidence to step up into their secondary education.
