Students from across Quebec (elementary cycle 3, secondary 1 & 2, and adult education) participated in the COM-Unity project and were given the opportunity to explore their identity and sense of belonging to Quebec society through the arts. In partnership with ELAN, project-based options teachers could choose from included  Spoken WordDigital StorytellingIntergenerational Comic-zine, and TAKE ACTION, a Community Service Learning project. A huge thank you to all the teachers and students that participated in the I Belong project.

Join LEARN and our 5 community partners in the COM-Unity project for a virtual celebration of all the projects on Thursday, June 10 at noon. See the registration link below.

LEARN TUTORING

Thank You for Making This a Record Year!

It was a pleasure to work with families across the province to provide more than 25 000 tutoring appointments this school year!

A HUGE thank you to the LEARN Super Tutors who made a difference for students across Quebec. Tutoring continues until June 10 and will resume in the fall.

While students across Quebec will hopefully be returning to in-school classes in the fall, some will still have access to online learning through select secondary 4 and 5 offerings available in partnership with LEARN.

All requests for online learning support MUST come from the school or school board.
