Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Nanoose Bay District Curriculum
The curriculum is changing to reflect the technology-driven world and help students locate and analyze information, to place more emphasis on concepts and processes, and to focus on learning less material but in greater depth. While the new curriculum will ensure that essential elements of learning are applied consistently, individual teachers will have freedom and will have the ability to personalize learning and differentiate instruction to meet the diverse needs of each their students.
The programs established by the curriculum include the French Immersion program for all grades, which allows students to gain fluency in the French language and become bilingual; the Head Start- Dual Credit Programs or Courses, which allow students to enroll in postsecondary courses or programs and earn college credits before graduating from high school; the Science, Technology, Robotics, Engineering and Math (STREAM) Intermediate Program for students in grades 4-7; and the Qualicum Music Academy for high school students.

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.
Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

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.
