John Maclure Community School - Abbotsford, British Columbia

John Maclure Community School

Adopted by: Coles Sevenoaks Shopping Centre  

John Maclure Community School is an inner-city school in the City Central area of Abbotsford. Wwe support a large percentage of our students who require targeted literacy support through our Learning Support teachers, English Language Learner specialists, Indigenous Cultural Support Worker, Youth Care Worker, and several Education Assistants. Over 60% of our students are English Language Learners including a percentage who are new comers to Canada. According to the 2020 City of Abbotsford Demographics for our area, about 20% of our families are considered low income earners.

By not attending school due to Covid, we noticed that literacy levels dropped significantly in our school as many students did not have access to books at home. Reading levels noticeably dropped in every grade. Receiving this funding will make a difference in promoting new, high-interest books to engage our students in reading. Our school is now putting an extra emphasis on literacy goals for our school in the coming year to address reading and vocabulary development in our school.
