In 2019-2020, St. James Elementary took a giant leap into the world of technology and innovation. Our school was fortunate enough to be selected as a Phase 2 school, which allowed us the opportunity to develop a room in the school dedicated to project based learning involving Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. Fittingly, the students themselves  decided to call this makerspace area the STEAM room.  Here is our Virtual space which coincides with our Physical space in the school. 


(Library Learning Commons)

At the same time, as part of the Phase 2 schools program, our school developed a Library Learning Commons, to offer our students a library space which offers more than just books. It's a place to research, collaborate, explore and create. Our students maned this space the DREAMROOM, a place where your dreams can come alive.

We also have a Virtual Library Learning  Commons  which offers online literacy resources for students and families.
