Being a Voyageur means; showing courage, being respectful, never giving up and showing the you care.


At Valour, we take pride in developing the whole child.  Education for our community has high academic expectations in a bilingual culture with character education embedded in all that we do.  We provide a learning atmosphere that has entry levels based on student readiness with a focus on collaborative learning in an inquiry based classroom. 

Rich learning activities will support the development of higher order thinking skills in a 21st century technology environment.  Staff collaboration and learning will guide the journey of each student toward the successful achievement of their life goals.  We will encourage our students to be creative, empathetic, compassionate and caring in all aspects of their life.  We will model Valour as our core character trait and celebrate and nurture our community to live a life that is courageous.  Valour as a name and character value will be the essence of all that we do each day in our school.  It will guide and give purpose to our lessons, our spirit and our activities. 

Together, we will create citizens that will shape our community to be one of respect, care, empathy and activism.  Together we will help all of our students meet success in our world.  Together, we will create our future.
