Welcome to Windermere's Leadership Mini-School Program !

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The Leadership Program seeks student who are hard-working, motivated, and interested in new challenges to better themselves and their community. The desire to learn more, lead through actions, and communicate with others the importance of social justice, active citizenship, community involvement, and environmental stewardship are central to the students’ development as leaders. A key component to ensure ongoing success is to continue to work alongside students, guiding them in their projects and offering them new opportunities to continually ignite their passions.

The Leadership Program gives students the opportunity to benefit from a mini-school setting while still being involved in the full school community. Classes are grouped so that students attend 4 Leadership-focused classes with their Leadership classmates, and 4 mainstream courses (including electives).  Under the semester model, 1/2 the day will be Leadership classes and 1/2 the day will be mainstream classes.

LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

We want to take this opportunity to acknowledge that we are on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded Indigenous territories of the Coast Salish peoples – sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh), and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) nations.

As guests to this beautiful Land, we are thankful and consider it a privilege to be able to live and do our learning here.  We are committed to the process of decolonization and reconciliation with First Nations, Métis, Inuit, and Urban Indigenous communities.  We are grateful for Indigenous stewardship and look forward to continued partnership.  

This acknowledgment is a reminder of the discriminatory, racist, and colonial practices that have had a lasting legacy and continue to create barriers for aboriginal peoples and communities in our city.
