Flex Time Thursday
Promoting Responsibility, Self-Reliance and Self-Motivation

 The flex time initiative has been extremely successful and has proven to be time well spent by students and staff. Students have been very productive and creative using their time to seek one on one support, complete homework, work on group projects, and prepare for exams. We initially introduced core course work only in September 2013, but due to a high level of student interest, we have introduced seminar sessions in each core subject area as well as programming in French, Music, CTS and Physical Education.

Father Michael Troy introduced an exciting learning initiative in September called Flex Time. Flex time is a designated block of time during the school day that is student directed but teacher supervised, where students can extend their learning, pursue individual interests, collaborate with peers, or where necessary, seek remediation and learning supports.

We are excited to inform you that we are the only school in the world that is engaged in flex time planning and research, but we are eager to share the incredible results that we are experiencing with student engagement and productivity at FMT. To date, we have had over 100 visitors to FMT looking to emulate our work locally as well as visitors from Norway and Australia, and we have been invited to speak at the upcoming AISI conference in Edmonton in February, and the American Educational Research Association Conference in San Francisco in April.

We are excited to see new initiatives develop from our work, and encourage your insight on future directions at FMT, to further develop students who are increasingly self-directed and successful, who develop a greater ownership for their learning, and who become more self-reliant, intrinsically motivated and more personally responsible.

Please call Mr. Bouma at 780.471.1962 to share your thoughts and insights on the Flex time initiative.
