Tree of Perseverance

This is an opportunity to help your students understand that there’s no shame in admitting they have trouble at school. The important thing is to learn and, with the support of your friends and family, to overcome challenges.

Draw a large tree on the board with three branches but no leaves. Introduce it as the tree of perseverance. Explain that the leaves grow when they, the students, make an effort to succeed, with the help of their friends and family.

Have the students identify the challenges they face at school. These challenges may involve learning, but they may also be on the social or family level. Have each student draw 15 leaves (or use those to be cut out provided in this file).

Symbolism of the Hooked on School Days ribbon

TLE and CDC Vimont have pins, ribbons, postcards, posters and certificates available. Ask Darlene or Karen!

The green and white ribbon symbolizes a value, a commitment to staying in school. Green stands for youth and hope. It represents young people, who need to be recognized and acknowledged in order to stay in school. White, a blend of all colours, represents the community which contributes to the development of its young people. The intertwining of the two ribbons illustrates the ties that unite young people and the community. The loop, open‐ended, holds the promise of a better future.

Wearing the Hooked on School ribbon shows your commitment to support young people in their efforts and in their educational success.

What is the Common Core Basic Education Program?

The Common Core Basic Education Program is the result of decisions taken by the Ministère de l’Éducation et Enseignement Supérieur / MEES with respect to the education reform in Québec.

It consists of 13 programs of study in the first phase of adult general education, known as Common Core Basic Education.

These programs of study are made up of courses spanning three levels: Literacy, Presecondary and Secondary Cycle One.’’

All Adult General Education services and programs of study of the 2016-2017 school year have been described in a reference document produced by the Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur.

An electronic version of this document is available on the website of the Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur at www.education.gouv.qc.ca

In Mathematics, the new Adult General Education curriculum will be mandatory as of the next school year meaning that all old codes will be depleted as of June 30th, 2017.

Please, note that all students are now registered in CCBE programs of study.

In Mathematics, please find in the tables below the correspondence between the old codes and the new codes:
