Leary's Brook Junior High - St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador

Leary's Brook Junior High

Adopted by: Coles Avalon Mall  

Leary’s Brook Junior High School is a school in the center of St. John’s, Newfoundland that is characterized by diversity and inclusion. We possess a rich tapestry of cultural diversity and have students from all different socioeconomic backgrounds with a wide array of diverse learning needs. Throughout the past year, we have been on a mission to foster a culture rich in literacy within our school environment to ensure that all our students have a foundation of reading and writing and are empowered to use their voice to become the leaders of tomorrow. We are seeking to expand and develop our Library Learning Commons with literature and resources to meet the diverse needs of our student population. We have developed our Library Learning Commons to be a common area for all of our students from Grades 6-9 to have equitable access to literacy resources that they may not have at home. Some of our students are avid readers; however, they do not always have access to a wide variety of reading material. Other students are very reluctant readers' we are looking to infuse our library collection with high interest books that can be accommodating to readers of all levels. Over a third of our student population are not originally from Newfoundland and Labrador; indeed, we have students from all over the world, many of whom have come to Canada as refugees. We see the Adopt-A-School program as a way to provide these students with more culturally responsive literature which would show these students' representation in their school library.
