Granite Ridge Education Centre

Adopted by: Coles Cornwall Square  

Granite Ridge Education Centre is a K-12 school located in Sharbot Lake, Ontario.

While we are a small rural school, we are large in heart; we are dedicated to the development of each of our students by providing a positive, supportive, accepting and stimulating environment where all are encouraged to grow and succeed to their fullest potential.

Introducing students to reading plays a significant role in their educational success. Our students are encouraged to accept challenges and changes at every opportunity, to strive to the best of their abilities, and to appreciate the value of life-long learning experiences. Our goal is that each student will face the future and its challenges with a positive focus and confidence for success.

The specific challenge surrounding literacy that our school experiences include the underserved nature of our community; while there are very small library branches in the area, for much of the last year, they have been closed due to Covid-19 pandemic mandates. Furthermore, the closest bookstores are at least a 30 minute drive, and many families are not in a financial position to purchase reading materials for their children. In addition, the school and parent council were only able to fundraise half the usual amount due to the pandemic and school closures. We strive to promote diversity and inclusion in our school, but lack literature that reflects these values and are current. We we are committed to introducing students to more literature that includes diversity and inclusion, indigenous content and SEL (Social Emotional Learning) content. We are an indigenous focused school with a significant percentage of our students identifying as indigenous. Currently we are developing an Algonquin curriculum to use in our school.
