Brechin Elementary is one of the oldest elementary schools in beautiful Nanaimo BC. Our current building was completed in 1993. The school was uniquely designed for learning, featuring a full-sized gymnasium, multipurpose room and kitchen, library and computer lab on one side and 10 classrooms on the other.
Brechin is a K-7 school with an average population of 180 students. Our school community is committed to creating a safe, caring and orderly learning environment for all. We begin our day with a morning gathering and a school-wide DPA (daily physical activity) program. Both of these programs help to build our strong sense of community! 2011-2012 will see the full implementation of our Positive Behaviour Intervention and Support Program (PBIS) into all areas of the school. Student behaviour expectations will be taught and reinforced positively and constructively when needed.
Our School Goals for 2012-2013 focus on the continued development of our writing program and the renewal of our Social Responsibility goal in conjunction with our Healthy Schools Goal. Reading continues to be a high priority at Brechin as well. Our school support program has been restructured to help meet the needs of all of our learners. We are looking forward to an exciting year!
Brechin indeed is a great place to learn!
