iGen Intergenerational Classroom

​Saskatoon Public Schools and Sherbrooke Community Centre have partnered to offer the iGen program where Grade 6 students spend a full school year in a unique classroom experience at Sherbrooke Community Centre.

iGen is short for “intergenerational classroom” and the program has students working with and learning from the elders of Sherbrooke Community Centre.  The centre is located close to École College Park School and provides housing, support and programming to those individuals who are elderly, or who require health supports.  Students in the iGen classroom learn and work with their teacher, the Sherbrooke residents and the staff at Sherbrooke as they meet the learning outcomes of our provincial curricula.
The iGen program is coming to the end of its first year. The Board heard from students and parents about their perspectives on how their students have grown and changed through this exciting and innovative program. Ms. Keri Albert, the program's current teacher, also provided her perspective on the first year of iGen.
