Pilot program at St. Michael integrates curriculum with hockey

St. Michael School in Weyburn is piloting a program with a Grade 6 class, the Hockey Canada Skills Academy, as a way to integrate the curriculum with hockey to create a unique learning experience for the students.

The Weyburn Rotary Club heard an update about what the program is all about and how it works, from principal Dean Loberg and superintendent Chad Fingler of the Holy Family Roman Catholic Separate School Division.

Explaining some of the philosophy behind the program, Fingler said, “We see ourselves as a deep-learning institution, and we want to be engaged and active. Our kids today are growing up in a different world than the world we grew up in. Their brains are wired differently.”
