Ralph Brown is an exciting, lively building where students and their families enjoy a warm and friendly atmosphere for learning. A wide range of programming is offered at Ralph Brown. The English program begins at the nursery level through to grade six, while the Ukrainian English Bilingual Program begins at the kindergarten level and continues through to grade eight. Children who register for the Ukrainian Bilingual Program may enter at the kindergarten or grade 1 level. Parents/Guardians and families do not need to speak Ukrainian or have Ukrainian heritage. The program offers rich cultural experiences with a focus on language development in the early years.
Students who require special services either through Special Education or Clinical Support Services can access those supports at Ralph Brown. An Integrated Special Education Program exists for those students who qualify. Referrals to specialized programs are also possible. Clinical Support Services offers families support in a number of ways. School Social Workers, Psychologists, Speech and Language Pathologists and Reading Clinicians have supported the school for a number of years and make a huge impact on student learning.
We are proud of our Aboriginal Education Program.A priority for a number of years has been to integrate Aboriginal Perspective into our daily routines. We are guided by the teachings of the medicine wheel and have integrated aboriginal perspective into many curricular areas. The importance we place on Aboriginal Education is evident when people enter the building and see our Seven Teachings Banners proudly displayed in the front entrance.
We invite our community into the school and hope that everyone has a chance to visit Ralph Brown School. Our Parent Council supports the learning that happens at school and we appreciate their support. They are always looking for extra help. Please join us at the regularly scheduled meetings.
I am very excited to be the new principal at Ralph Brown School this year. The dedicated staff and hard working students come together to make it a wonderful place to learn. We strive for everyone's success and proudly say we are Ralph Brown 'Rockets!
