Our School Goal

At Skwo:wech we will work together as a school community to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes that will foster a positive school community of socially and emotionally connected learners. We will develop common language to support our students’ growth and self-awareness in relation to their emotions and also support them in the development of skills to manage their emotions constructively.
