Inspiring Learning
Creative Action


As a Centre of Excellence Through the Arts, North Park Wilson School believes in the power of learning through artistic endeavours. Music, dance, drama and visual art can ignite students’ passion to become engaged citizens.
Creative Action is a specialized, full-year program for Grade 8 students who have shown leadership potential and a desire to cultivate their passion in the arts to make a difference in their community and beyond. Students collaborate with a variety of artists/partnerships throughout the city and province while working on ​Grade 8 curriculum in a creative, unique and experiential classroom. Creative Action nurtures Saskatoon's next generation of local citizens, artists and leaders.

Based on research, the program is guided by the belief that:
  • ​Our changing world needs students who think creatively and who collaborate to explore thoughtfully and engage deeply.
  • Students build their confidence by discovering their full potential through the arts.
  • Students who develop strong connections to each other and the wider community have a sense of belonging.
  • Students are stronger when they are able to identify and share their understandings, beliefs and opinions about local and global issues.​
​Creative Action students come from across Saskatoon. As a result, the class is composed of students from diverse backgrounds. This diversity is an asset as students learn to establish their voices and honour a variety of ideas and perspectives. Creative Action students have opportunities to collaborate creatively and to spark positive change in our community.


Students have opportunities to explore, create, discover and strengthen skills through creative action, allowing them to: 
  • Recognize the relevance and power of the arts, as well as the cultural contexts of artists and art forms​
  • Be engaged citizens who understand their rights and responsibilities to use their voice and take action
  • Be confident leaders who connect with various communities in a meaningful way
  • Be inspired to create change through their creative expressions.
