On Saturday January 19th, McRoberts hosted a Core Competencies Ed Camp (Professional Development opportunity). Teachers from around the province came together to share thoughts, ideas, and insights into how to best implement Core Competencies in schools. Among the educators were 10 of our students. Though they were the youngest and non eductors, in the eyes of some, they were an extremely valuable contributor to the discussions. Below are some of the Twitter feedback provided by participants about our students.
