Did you know that at the Grade 6 level only 57% of students met the provincial standard in mathematics? The Ottawa Senators Foundation in partnership with the Ottawa Senators Hockey Club have invested in our community’s future through educational initiatives directed towards youth, teens and young adults.
How we're involved:
More than 107,000 students in over 1,300 classrooms across eastern Ontario and western Quebec participate in the Sens@School program.
With innovative lesson plans using the sport of hockey, Spartacat, and the Ottawa Senators Hockey club, the program delivers required curriculum in language arts, fine arts, mathematics, and physical education, giving teachers a way to inspire students’ imaginations. The Foundation hopes to expand the program by incorporating more physical and mental wellness curriculum focused activities into the current lesson plans.
