Our school's code of conduct is designed as a tool to help students make socially responsible decisions in a variety of situations. This code was developed by staff and students. Our expectation is that all people in the building (students, staff, and visitors) apply the code at all times. STAR Matrix posters are displayed throughout the school. A French STAR Matrix poster is used in French Immersion classrooms. Students are taught the STAR matrix behaviours at the beginning ofthe year. Senior students make daily announcements on the PA system, including a different daily focus on STAR behaviour. Students receive positive recognition slips from staff in aknowledgement of appropriate behaviour. For misbehaviours, a citation slip is issued. Teachers and administrators use the STAR matrix to discuss behaviour, consequences, and golas for improvement with individual students as needed.
École Christine Morrison School is a dual track school, offering a regular English program and a French Immersion program. >read more

Morrison Little Readers
Calling all 3 & 4 year olds!
Morrison Little Readers free drop-in sessions will begin in October in the library at Ecole Christine Morrison and will run every Friday that school is in session until late May.
Sessions start at 8:35am and will run for approximately 1 hour. We ask that a parent or guardian stays with their child and joins in the fun!
Our program will include story time, a craft activity involving fine motor skills, learning how to care for and share a borrowed book, and the opportunity to make new friends.
Morrison Little Readers is led by two wonderful parent volunteers - Monica Nguyen and Donna Prescott. Their own children are currently attending this school. Monica and Donna are very excited to offer this early literacy program for our preschoolers. They hope that Morrison Little Readers will promote a love of books and help young children feel more comfortable with the transition to their future school. Please note that each week we can only accomodate 15 children per session. If you have any questions please call Mrs. Pallmann at (604) 826-6528.
The purpose of learning assistance is to provide a school-based service designed to support teachers and their students with learning difficulties. In the learning assistance program, students are helped to develop effective learning strategies that will enable them to adapt to various learning situations and to feel successful in their ability to learn.
As all subjects are based on the ability to read and write, priority will be given to support in language arts. Learning assistance will, whenever possible, be available for students from kindergarten to grade seven. However, preference will be given to Kindergarten, Grade One, Grade Two and Grade Three as part of the district's early success program. By giving early intervention to primary students, hopefully learning difficulties will be reduced in the intermediate grades.
Kindergarten is an important milestone in a child’s development. Children who enter kindergarten are generally inquisitive, imaginative, active, and eager to learn. They enjoy exploring, experimenting, playing, and working with others. At École Christine Morrison, we strive to provide kindergarten students with a safe stimulating environment. Our goal is the development of students’ self confidence in their ability to learn, In this way, in kindergarten we open the door to further learning in the school system. This year, we are excited to be offering full day kindergarten classes at our school.
At École Christine Morrison senior students participate in our Student Leadership program. This program addresses some of the learning outcomes of Career and Personal Planning. Students provide service to the school in a variety of areas including crossing guards, flag monitors, office monitors, primary classroom monitors, and concession monitors. Students learn important concepts such as responsibility, commitment, and service to others. Most importantly, students learn first hand that the many positive programs offered at this school are the result of hard work and collaborative teamwork.
Peer Counselors are students who are trained to assist other students with concerns they have about school, friends, home or themselves. Training and supervision of peer counselors is provided by teaching/counseling professionals. >read more
