Remote Learning


Support for Remote Learning

We are here for you.

SJK is a place where we take care of each other as we care for our own families. During difficult times, families have to stick together and support each other. It is important for you all to know that the faculty and staff at SJK are coming together in unprecedented ways to support our students. We have a plan to ensure that learning continues in a meaningful and supportive way for each child. The next few weeks will present both a unique set of opportunities and challenges for us all and our common goal is to ensure that you and your child feel ready, connected, and cared for as we take these next steps together. 

We know that all members of our community cope with challenges and change in a variety of different ways. As such, we want you to know that there are a variety of resources available for you and your child. Just like when students are on campus, we will continue to offer them access to Learning Support, Guidance, Wellness, Counseling and IT Support. More information about our services is available below.

Just because we aren’t physically in the same space, doesn’t mean we stop being Eagles! We’ve got you.

Learning Support Services

As we move into a period of remote learning, our Learning Services Faculty will remain committed to supporting your child. We know you value the one-on-one time that we spend helping your child achieve their personal goals and we plan on continuing to be a resource for them and you. 

You can expect the following from us:
  • We will provide strategies and resources to students
  • We will collaborate with teachers and advisors to monitor the progress of all students 
  • We will communicate with you when concerns regarding your child arise
  • We will directly monitor the needs of students on Learning Support Plans. 
Our Learning Services team, Rebecca Dufour and Jennifer Wilkinson will continue to provide learning support for your child.

Health and Wellness

Research says that establishing positive daily routines helps anchor us, reduces stress, and helps us focus on what matters most. Making your health and wellness a priority can be challenging. Sometimes we are really good at prioritizing one area but we neglect the others. 

One way to make all areas of your wellness a priority is to move your body for 20 minutes a day, find a sense of calm, peace and stillness for 20 minutes a day, and then read or write for 20 minutes a day. Playing outside, taking walks, going on bike rides and gardening help to restore a positive spirit. Asking each family member to prepare a family workout is another enjoyable way to keep fit and have fun together. Yoga and meditation also work well indoors and can be done by people with a range of fitness levels. Most importantly, stay active and practice self-care.

The SJK P.E. department are excited to have this opportunity to support and encourage you in your wellness journey. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to any of the teachers through


Our qualified and caring Guidance team provides career advice, academic help and personal growth assistance with an eye on providing students with the tools necessary to navigate their years at SJK and beyond. Our Head of Guidance, Mr. Ian Carswell will continue to provide guidance support for your child. 

You can expect the following from us:
  • We will provide strategies and resources to students related to wellness
  • We will provide access to counselling for students regarding personal issues, career investigation, social issues, as well as academic concerns via Google Hangouts Meet. 
  • We will set appointments, as needed, for post-secondary guidance for our Grade 12's
