ICES Writing Program
This school year, ICES has developed a renewed focus on student writing as a way to increase literacy levels at our school. The focus has been for students to write on something meaningful to them...whether this is a person, event or memory. Stuents are encouraged to focus on writing as a means of expression rather than just a was to transmit information. In this way, student engagement is increased. The process of writing is celebrated as much as the product, meaning that good writing takes inspiration, time, thought, editing and sharing for it to be developed. The staff has also joined in with creating and sharing their own written work. We are writers!
