A Journey Inspiring Trustworthy Character

The SCREAM curriculum for grades 6 and 7 students empowers students to think critically, feel deeply and act wisely to build trustworthy character. Character development provides students with a “deeply rooted” sense of self that promotes personal success and creates stability during seasons of transition in school and life.

SCREAM is a 12.5 hour program (5 units at 2.5 hours each) that meets provincial curriculum learning outcomes in British Columbia and Alberta. This program is exciting and energetic as key concepts are explored through a dynamic combination of team building games, role playing, media discussions with videos, small group time and self-reflective activities.  Students are engaged and encouraged to use their voice to build a stronger understanding of themselves and a deeper appreciation of their classmates.
