TRA's Vision, Mission Statement, and Beliefs

 

Mission

In our vision, we see school, home, and community working together to pursue the common task of learning. Teachers will utilise the time, expertise, and resources to provide for individual differences, while maintaining high expectations and standards for all students. Students will be encouraged to take risks in their learning, becoming life-long learners in an environment of appropriate challenge and leadership.

 

Mission

We, at Tatamagouche Regional Academy, are committed to establishing an inclusive, enjoyable, positive learning climate where students work towards achieving their greatest potential and grow academically, physically, emotionally, culturally, creatively and socially in a safe learning environment. We endeavour to engage our learners in a pedagogy that embraces curiosity and provides academic challenge, engaging and motivating our students to want to become independent lifelong learners, critical thinkers and problem solvers. We strive to empower our students to become confident, knowledgeable and respectful citizens who are socially conscious and globally aware, and who will contribute successfully to our world by recognizing the value of positive role models and inspiring leadership.

 

Beliefs

The education of the students encompasses the school, the home and the community.

Everyone is capable, valued, and responsible.

All students can learn; students learn in different ways.

Everyone should recognize that respect for oneself, for others and the community they are in, creates a tolerant and safe environment, where we can celebrate diversity and individuality.

Students should be provided with opportunities to develop critical thinking, reasoning, problem-solving and decision-making skills.

All students require opportunities to develop and mature socially.

All students deserve to receive attention for both strengths and challenges, through consistent, frequent feedback.

Teachers will provide the opportunity for students (environment which leads) to develop to their (the development of) full academic potential.

The teacher is the facilitator who provides a caring and inviting place where the students will be safe, comfortable, and free to take risks in learning.
