Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School
149 Berrigan Drive
Most of us have no idea what's really going on inside our heads - or our children's heads. How do we learn? What exactly do sleep and stress do to our brains? Why is it so easy to forget-and so important to repeat new knowledge? John Antonetti takes us on a journey through the latest brain research in a humorous, interactive workshop that integrates strategy, thinking, and engagement - truly a three-dimensional approach to look at what makes each of our children unique.

Glebe Principal France Thibault wins award as one of Canada's Outstanding Principals

France Thibault

The Learning Partnership has announced the recipients of this year's "2016 Outstanding Principals" award, and France is one of the winners.

From her bio on the site:

France has a wealth of expertise from positions at a variety of Ottawa schools as well as international experience. Her dedication to improving learning opportunities for students led to her founding of School-for-All, which trains volunteers and teachers in Kenya, Tanzania, and Mali. France is the consummate instructional leader, blending data and evidence-based practices. Teacher evaluations are more about professional learning and collaboration, than appraisals. The achievement of students at Glebe Collegiate Institute is at the forefront of everything that happens at the school. Over 90% of students are successful on the grade 10 provincial OSSLT. Progress for each student is tracked, monitored and there are ongoing interventions put in place for supports. Student success for all is France’s mantra reflected in the increase in the results of both the students in applied and academic programming. Frances motivates, inspires and generates trust among staff and students, leading to student success.

Our congratulations to France on a well-deserved win!
