The creation of a new sensory space at St. Edward Catholic School is a fantastic development for the school community. Sensory spaces play a crucial role in providing a supportive environment for students, especially those with sensory sensitivities or special needs. This initiative not only enhances the educational experience for students at St. Edward Catholic School but also demonstrates educators' commitment to providing students with what they need to self-regulate at school.

Mrs. Copp applied for Board funding through the Learning and Innovation Fund for Teachers grant. This began the inception of the sensory room project. It is heartening to see collaboration between the Superior North Catholic District School Board, the Red Rock Indian Band, and the Flying Post First Nation to support such a valuable project. The generosity of the anonymous donors, along with the commitment of Mrs. Copp, the school board and the Red Rock Indian Band, showcases a shared dedication to the well-being and inclusivity of students.

Sensory spaces are immensely beneficial for individuals who may have sensory sensitivities or other special needs. These spaces provide a supportive environment that can enhance the well-being and learning experience for students. The collective effort and support from various stakeholders demonstrate a commitment to inclusivity and creating an environment that caters to the diverse needs of the school community.

Such initiatives not only improve the educational experience for students but also contribute to fostering a sense of community and understanding among different learning needs of students. When people come together to support these projects, positive impacts are achieved, and meaningful differences in the lives of our students living with exceptionalities are made.
