Feast of Friends

The first week of October always brings a list of reasons to celebrate at Woodview Learning Centre. Our students have been showing us lots of signs of a successful transition into a new school year by figuring out their new classroom routines, building new friendships, and finding their place within our school. The change of seasons also brings new excitement to enjoy the fall colours during our many outdoor activities.
