Citizenship Programs

Citizenship Programs

Braemar House School students benefit greatly from our holistic approach to character development through our Citizenship Programs which support, protect and enrich our academic programming.  Through this vibrant character development program and active involvement in the community, our students develop self-confidence and a thoughtful respect for themselves, their peers, their teachers and the community.

Grade specific programs ensure the living out of our commitment to citizenship.

GRADE 1 – ROOTS OF EMPATHY

This innovative classroom-based program teaches child development, tolerance, an appreciation for differences, and emotional literacy. A baby makes monthly classroom visits with his/her mother and a trained facilitator, giving students the opportunity to interact with and learn from the baby.

GRADE 2 – GEM’S CLUB

This program teaches children the importance of using virtues in their daily lives and provides them with support to build their self esteem as they attempt to name and put the virtues in action.

GRADE 3 AND 4 – Kindness In Me and Leader in Me

This fast paced active learning program addresses bullying and classroom dynamic from a proactive standpoint.  It builds critical thinking skills through various activities.  It empowers the students to use kindness as a tool of impact and change through collaboration among students.

GRADE 5 – ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP

Our students are encouraged to see themselves as an integral part of our environment, embracing the challenge of protecting it by acting responsibly and positively. Our Grade 5 class takes care of our school environment by encouraging and managing our recycling and composting programs.

GRADE 6 – Lead Young Program

The Lead Young program focuses on 16 leader qualities taught in the context of leading.  The program conditions young leaders to respond automatically as team builders and problem solvers.

GRADE 7 and 8 – YOUTH EXPERIENCE SERVICE (Y.E.S.!)

This program is an opportunity for our students to appreciate and respond to the challenges faced by underprivileged children and adults, both locally and globally, with specific connections to the work of the Me to We Foundation. It serves the expectation of our History and Geography curriculum to “relate and apply the knowledge acquired to the world outside the classroom”.

At Braemar House School we believe that as an institution we should be an integral part of the Brantford community, the community in which we live. Our programming often includes ways to show our students how to contribute. Braemar students are proud to have been involved in or have contributed to the community in the following ways:

Me to We Foundation
Toonies For Terry
Brantford Classic Run for the Rotary
Christmas Baskets Campaign
Brantford Food Bank
Roots of Empathy
Community Remembrance Day Service
Children’s Safety Village of Brantford
