Westmount’s Character Education program is based on the attributes represented by the acronym ‘ROAR’.  At Westmount we want our students to be Responsible, Optimistic, Attentive and Respectful and when they display these characteristics our Wildcats ‘ROAR’!  The program focuses on a whole-school approach and aims to promote a positive school climate for everyone.  The message of ROAR provides common language to address school expectations and appropriate behaviour.  Each attribute in ROAR will be highlighted during the school year and students will be encouraged to reflect on and share how that attribute looks, sounds, and feels to them.  Assemblies, frequent student recognition, and classroom activities supplement the program.
