GLC Mission, Vision and Values
GLC Mission, Vision and Values


Golden Learning Centre Public School is located in the mining community of Balmertown, Ontario.  Golden Learning Centre serves the communities of Balmertown, Cochenour, McKenzie Island, and the northern side of the Chukuni River subdivision.


The Golden Learning Centre staff have worked together to develop the following beliefs and mission.  We work together to stay true to what we believe and to accomplish our mission.

The staff of the Golden Learning Centre believes in:

  • respect
  • excellence
  • partnership

Our mission as a staff is to create and maintain an environment where trust, respect, and high expectations prevail. All GLC staff members work as a team to enhance students’ learning and growth. Our mission is to sustain sincere interest in the total education of each student‘s academic, social, emotional and physical well-being. We strive to foster a high professional ethic in ourselves and each other.


The educational philosophy at the Golden Learning Centre provides for consistent daily authentic learning experiences and encourages each individual to develop to his/her full potential.

We believe that all learners differ from each other, and the curriculum has been designed to allow for these differences.  It is our aim to foster learning by providing opportunities for creative thinking and effective problem solving.

We also believe that we must develop in children a desire to learn and an acceptance of responsibility for themselves and towards others.  The attitude with which our children approach school and their studies is an essential component.  By working with and supporting each other we believe that positive attitudes, values, and work habits can be fostered and maintained.
