Keeping Informed: Recent Nanoose Bay Educational News
- Kwalikum Music Teacher Retires After 24 Years - Kwalikum Secondary School music teacher David Stewart recently retired after 24 years. When Mr. Stewart first heard the school’s band—before he began teaching in District 69—they “knocked [his] socks off,” but when he took over, he had huge shoes to fill in replacing a teacher everyone adored. He eventually rebuilt the program and continued to engage students year after year. Mr. Stewart has been lauded for his incredibly high level of dedication and hard work, and when he first started out, he had to run 12 different teams at once.
- District 69 Sees Increase in Enrollment - For the 2015-16 school year, School District No. 69 saw an increase in enrollment of 100 students from the previous year. Much of this increase has been due to families relocating from Alberta and the Lower Mainland, and the district’s enrollment projection tool shows a positive outlook for the next five years. Most of the increase in enrollment is within the elementary schools, with Arrowview Elementary adding 69 students and Errington Elementary reaching full capacity.
- 20-Year-Old Gair Brings the Students’ Voice to the School Board - Twenty-year-old Jacob Gair previously criticized the Qualicum Board of Education for failing to have student representation, creating a divide between what the students want and what is provided to them. When Gair was voted onto the Board of Education, his goal was to represent the youth and give the students a voice by continuing to visit schools and talk with them, as he did during his campaign. Gair is double-majoring in history and political science at Vancouver Island University.

Chalk Talk: Implementing Multiple Intelligences in the Classroom
Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences is an educational theory that states that individuals—and students—all learn best in different ways and that they each have areas of strength that they are most intelligent in. Teachers must find ways to differentiate instruction to meet the diverse learning needs of each student. The verbal-linguistic domain may be the simplest to integrate because there is already a great deal of these activities happening in the classroom: reading, writing stories and poetry, writing reports and essays, etc. However, not all students are strong in this area, so teachers need to find some non-traditional activities and techniques. Visual-spatial learners may draw pictures, create posters (on the computer or on paper), make videos—these are all ways to visually display learning. Most students have fun listening to and singing songs, and this method can help them—especially those who are musical—learn a great deal of material. Teachers can find educational songs or have students create them.
