The STARS Program is a south district program accessible to all south end elementary schools. This program is currently housed at Lord Roberts Community School.
The STARS Program is an intensive six week, half-day program that helps students to improve their classroom/social skills. Students attend their home school for the other half of the day. Transportation to and from the STARS Program is provided by Winnipeg School Division #1 Transportation Department.
Grades 1-3 and grades 4-6 are grouped together with a maximum of eight students per class.
Students learn skills in empathy, problem solving, impulse control, anger management and social interactions. Self-esteem usually increases as a result of gaining skills in these areas.
The STARS teacher, in conjunction with the classroom teacher and the parent(s), will develop individual student behaviour plans which include social skills training, coping skills, and strategies for implementation at their home schools.
