SCHOOL NEWS

  • Thanks to everyone who supported our Scholastic Book Fair – we will be able to buy new books for our Library!

 

  • Recently there has been a large increase in requests for cutlery from the office during lunchtime.  We do supply plastic cutlery to students if needed, but please remember to pack re-useable cutlery for your child.

 

  • It’s Pink Shirt Day on Wednesday.  In 2007, high school students in Nova Scotia distributed pink shirts after a classmate was bullied for wearing pink.  Wear pink on Wednesday, if you can, to promote kindness!

School Story in Action 2023-2024 

 

February 23, 2024 

 

February is Black History Month which addresses systemic issues, such as racism, while also helping us learn from the past, the qualities of leaders, and the positive cultural impact of leaders like Martin Luther King Jr. (MLK Jr.). These leaders have a positive influence in our lives and for future generations. Division 7 shared their dreams and goals for the world for something beyond their self, inspired my MLK Jr.’s speech, “I Have a Dream.” 

 

Some examples of student dreams include gender equality in sports, animal rights, caring for the environment, racial equality, ending world hunger, and addressing homelessness.  

 

This links to our School Story focus in the following way:  

Learning is embedded in memory, history, and story. 

(First Peoples Principles of Learning) 

 

As learning is ongoing, we thought we would remind you of some of last year's work around the same theme.  

 

February 10, 2023  

 

Since February is Black History Month, it is a good time to begin conversations around prominent black figures and the importance of inclusion and representation. This week, we would like to showcase Division 7’s learning about Viola Desmond, a Canadian changemaker whose story demonstrates the importance of speaking out to make spaces safer for all. 

 

This links to our School Story focus in the following way: 

Recognizing personal values and choices - "Students define who they are by what they value. They understand how what they value has been influenced by their life experiences. They identify how their values help to shape their choices, in all contexts of their lives."
