The school was all a buzz at the arrival of Richmond Hill’s Mayor, Mr. David Barrow, who recently came to Richland to see our Reggio-inspired approach to learning firsthand; and to review the exciting plans in place for Richland’s upcoming expansion. Mayor Barrow hardly got a word in, thanks to the enthusiasm of our students to share their thoughts and ideas. The pride they exude for their work reaffirms the importance of giving students a voice in their learning, and creating opportunities for them to express their understanding.
Mayor Barrow was suitably impressed with the confidence and thoughtfulness Richland’s students displayed during his visit. We are grateful to Mayor Barrow for being so generous with his time, and hope that he will come back to see all the incredible learning taking place at Richland very soon!
