What are the Extra-Curricular Programs ?

Extra-Curricular Programs

At Edward Murphy we are proud of the fact that our children do much more than simply attend classes, they learn by participating in the community and so much more.

Academic

SPEAKING AND WRITING

Every 6 weeks, students in each of our classes are selected to present in front of their peers and parents, an original piece of writing.  It is an occasion that allows our diverse students to shine and showcase their writing talent and develop their oratory skills.  It is an activity that develops confidence in our students and we are very proud of their work.

P.E.L.O. PROGRAM (ITALIAN)

The Programme d'enseignement des langues d'origine (PELO), is a special project totally financed by the government. The purpose of the program is to allow each child to broaden and better appreciate his/her language and culture of origin. In our case, due to the overwhelming number of pupils who are of Italian origin, the language taught is Italian.

The program is nevertheless open to all pupils in the school and at all cycles. Many pupils who are not of Italian origin avail themselves of the opportunity to learn a new language and better appreciate the culture of their friends, and as such, register for the program.

At present, the course is integrated into the pupil’s regular timetable for a total of 90 minutes per week.

HOMEWORK ASSISTANCE

As part of the daycare program, students have access to a homework and tutoring program ye ar long. All parents have the option to register their children for the daycare program at a cost of $35.00 per week.

For selected non-daycare students, a similar program is being offered on Mondays and Thursdays. A letter will be sent home if your child has been selected for this pilot project. Acceptance is conditional on parents being able to pick up their child at 3:30 from the school.

UNITÉ SANS VIOLENCE

Edward Murphy School in partnership with the Montreal Police Department encourages students in grades 4, 5 and 6 to make a commitment to reject violence and express themselves through the "Unité sans violence" (Non-Violence Squad) program.

The members of the Unité sans violence are ambassadors for non-violence in their schools, and they make a commitment to meet with other students to talk about the program. They wear special t-shirts and hand out reward vouchers to students whose behaviour promotes peace. Each voucher shows the name of the person whose behaviour is being rewarded, a summary of their actions, and the name of the Non-Violence Squad member who issued the voucher.

Specialized Learning Programs

Intellectual and cultural diversity is an enriching component of the Edward Murphy experience. We offer exceptional programs and specialized teachers for our students with special needs and learning difficulties.

Speech and Language Development

The speech and language development class is intended to provide specific, intensive language stimulation to a small group of children who have specific language impairment based on professional evaluation.

The teacher is specifically trained to instruct students with language difficulties. There is a lower pupil teacher ratio and the curriculum is adapted to provide learning materials that are stimulating and challenging for each child.
