Our Mission

Our mission describes our school's purpose. Our vision depicts our desired future. The principles needed to achieve our mission and vision are articulated in our values. Finally, the actions we need to demonstrate to make our mission, vision and values a reality are described in our collective commitments.

We have developed these statements in collaboration with our staff, students and families. They are part of our School Success Plan.

Mission

Mission At Fernforest we recognize that each child is unique, with differing skills and abilities. We are committed as a staff in providing learning environments and engaging activities that address the whole child--academically, socially, emotionally and physically--in order to meet their individual needs. We work as a team with school staff, parents, students and community resources to ensure student success and well being. Vision At Fernforest, our motto is "Honour, Learn, Build." As a school, and as individuals committed to empowering modern learners, we choose to: honour the past, learn from the present and build for the future. We honour the diversity and experiences students bring to our school; we recognize the importance to build upon those skills, knowledge and experience; we challenge our students to be ready for the future.
