School climate is multi-dimensional and influences many individuals, including students, parents, school personnel, and the community. School climate can be a positive influence on the health of the learning environment. Research shows that a positive school climate has been associated with fewer behavioural and emotional problems for students.
This year, Apsley Central P.S. has been awarded the ‘Positive School Award’! Many factors contribute to earning this prestige award. The interaction of various school and classroom climate factors can create a fabric of support that enables all members of the school community to teach and learn at optimum levels. Factors or aspects of school climate such as trust, respect, mutual obligation, and concern for other’s welfare are all present at our school. These factors have a powerful effect on learners’ academic achievements and overall school progress. What children learn about themselves in school through interactions is equally important as the academic knowledge they receive. School climate, if positive, can provide an enriching environment, both for personal growth and academic success!
I would like to commend all members of our school community for defining our positive culture. Feedback from many who offered comment about our school indicated that our community is “comprised of a plethora of kind, compassionate, and caring individuals who want the best for the students of Apsley”. Thank you to all for making a significant difference!
Wishing everyone a safe and happy summer!
