WELCOME TO STEVENSON-BRITANNIA ADULT LEARNING CENTRE
Thank you for considering the Stevenson-Britannia Adult Learning Centre (SBALC) educational community. At SBALC, our mission statement is: Educating with empathy, learning through community, growing in knowledge.
We value respectful speech and action, the recognition of the essential humanity of all students and staff, and the pursuit of excellence in academic studies and personal growth.
Stevenson-Britannia Adult Learning Centre is a United Nations, Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) member school. We commit to the UNESCO mission to:
“…help build a sustainable world with just societies that value knowledge, promote peace, celebrate diversity and defend human rights…” (www.unesco.org).
As a UNESCO school, we have made a whole school commitment to engage in the ongoing work of Reconciliation. We are resolved to gain knowledge about, and to act on, the educational recommendations set out by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada and to establish a reconciliation process that is, “based on the principles of mutual recognition, mutual respect, and shared responsibility…” and which, “build[s] student capacity for intercultural understanding, empathy, and mutual respect” (Calls to Action, Reconciliation, 2015).
Adult students come together in our school from different life experiences, different cultures, and different ways of understanding the world, but all come with hope, with courage, with determination, and with a strong desire to effect change in their lives. We look forward to getting to know each new student as they step forward into this new beginning.
We know that this school year will feel very different because of the world-wide COVID-19 pandemic. Our school has a plan in place that will keep us learning together as safely as possible (see SBALC Reopening Plan 2020 and January 2021 Re-opening Plan). Our teachers will review this plan at the start of the year and if you have any questions or concerns please come in to see me or email/call our office.
Stevenson-Britannia Adult Learning Centre acknowledges that we operate on the traditional lands of the Anishinnaabe, Ininew, Oji-Cree, Dene, Dakota and Metis peoples who lived on this land from time immemorial, and who continue to live here, with all of us, as we make our way forward together.
