IPS founder Ted Spear's Education Reimagined: The Schools our Children Need
Spear’s ideas have been crafted through decades of work in the education field. He did a bachelor of education and a master and PhD of philosophy of education. He taught in Northern Manitoba, in Haida Gwaii and at Columbia College, becoming more and more impatient with the mainstream education system. So in 1995, along with a few other people, he started his own school. Spear was head of IPS on and off before retiring in 2017.

Acts of Kindness QMS Junior School
The other afternoon when I returned to my office, I was surprised to find a little goodie bag with a tag attached that said, “With Love, From Elf.” Inside the goodie bag, I found some ginger snaps and a candy cane. A heart-shaped card was also enclosed with a note that read “I like you!” Based on reports from witnesses around the school, apparently, a small band of elves wearing red and green elf hats and QMS uniforms had been popping in and out of various buildings dropping off treats and cards. If the other recipients were anything like me, I am sure they found the bag of treats and the note to be a true pick-me-up and a thoughtful gesture at this busy time of year.

7 Ways to Boost Your Child's Development
Child development involves all the changes that take place in your child physically, emotionally and in terms of their language and thought.

Brentwood College School Field Hockey
This season, field hockey had more of an on-campus profile thanks to the donation of the artificial turf by a former player and her family. This enabled us to train occasionally at the school and play 7-aside interhouse matches. The majority of our games and training, however, were on Duncan’s turfs alongside the 1st X1. As a result, some of our players graduated to that team and we acquired Development team players to replace them.

Gaining New Insights Through the New York Times Summer Journalism Program
The summer between two school years is a critical time that presents an opportunity to enrich your day-to-day life, whether it be with the wisdom gleaned from novels, with that new trick you’ve taught your dog, or, in my case, with the love of learning and inquisition gained from a two-week summer journalism program in New York City.
