New Program - ReThink!
ReThink is an opportunity for students and families at Burnaby North who want a different school experience, which is built around student interest, driven by inquiry, lives in the community, and aligns with the redesigned curriculum and demands of the world in which we live.
Some of the reasons why students should get involved with ReThink:
• Provide students opportunities to grow their talents and be great in their own way
• Nurture the skills and habits of mind students require to become learners, thinkers & creators
• Help students transfer knowledge and skills from the classroom to the community around them
• Encourage and celebrate entrepreneurial qualities
• Create connections and networks with community partners
There are five main components of Re-Think.
Students can opt into all or any of the components.

• Community Based Projects
• Personal Inquiry Projects
• Speaker Series
• Design Challenges
• Digital Learning Portfolios
