MicroSociety Education Model - Sept 2019!
After consulting with Timberlea School Council members, school staff and FMPSD executive, we have decided to embark on a new educational journey beginning September 2019.
MicroSocietyⓇ is an educational model that creates a thriving, modern-day, mini-metropolis, with students taking on real-world roles and responsibilities of government officials, business owners and managers, law enforcement, non-profit work, and participating in all aspects of a consumer marketplace. A built-in "Micro-university" engages business, government, and other community leaders to share their knowledge and experience with students and staff. This society is created and managed by students and facilitated by teachers and community mentors.
Timberlea School will be the first in Fort McMurray to offer this unique educational experience. Watch this video from Aspen Heights School in Red Deer, or contact the school office to find out more!
