We are happy to announce the launch of Vidigami, a private photo-sharing platform we've set up for Meadowridge's students, parents, faculty, and staff. You can use Vidigami to browse, download, and upload high-resolution photos, as well as search for photos of your child by name.
A highlight of our favourite annual tradition
Students have counted their earnings and are pleased to announce that $2104.73 was raised for Child Haven and BC Children's Hospital.
Grade 5 students used their knowledge of simple machines to create mechanical brains inspired by the cartoons of Rube Goldberg.
Students took part in an all-out battle of wits and science this past Friday for our latest Classroom Without Walls. Divided into groups, students took part in four challenges in an effort to take home Gold, Silver, or Bronze at the Meadowridge Science Olympics.
If you pass by the Grade 4 classes this week, expect to see a hubbub of activity: students designing posters, pricing toys and books, testing-out carnival games, and crafting all sorts of wares. With just a few short days before the Kids for Kids' Rights Fair, the excitement is expected...
Olivia Maddigan, '17
I believe that part of being a good leader is knowing when to "do" and when to "delegate". By nature, I am really a "doer". However, I have learned through experience that almost all of the time, delegating responsibilities leads to the best outcomes.
“Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results…" I keep this mantra in mind whenever I'm acting in a position of leadership. If something isn't working, change strategies.”
Tamara Warner, Faculty
Ms. Tamara Warner is one of the foundation builders, and for a few years now she has seen her first batches of students graduate. Hired in August 2000, Ms. Warner taught Grade 1 for seven years before moving to Kindergarten, from which she never wants to leave.
“What keeps me at Meadowridge are the personal and emotional connections. I am an emotional person, and the genuine feeling of belonging is so strong here.”
Avio Diniz, Faculty
Meadowridge students are full of joy, eager to learn, natural inquiries and have genuine care about others and our environment.
“They truly exemplify the IB Learner Profile attributes wonderfully.”
Learning to live well, with others and for others, in a just community
Our Mission is woven into our everyday actions and interactions. It acknowledges the importance of positive interactions with others and in seeking to better the community as we better ourselves.
It looks beyond gender, nationality, culture, and class. It guides staff, administration, students, and families to meet responsibilities and fulfill dreams.
