Monthly Reports

 

The Minister's Panel on Education released a report today, Disrupting the Status Quo: Nova Scotians Demand a Better Future for Every Student. The report contains seven themes that represent what almost 19,000 Nova Scotians said are the most important issues to improve the system. Education and Early Childhood Development Minister Karen Casey accepted the report and announced she will begin immediately on an action plan to create changes in the education system. 

Concerns with ceiling in main lobby area

Students from grades 4 to 9, representing schools throughout the Chignecto-Central Regional School Board (CCRSB), will gather at the Truro Campus of the Nova Scotia Community College on May 1 for CCRSB’s Regional Heritage Fair. Workshops on heritage topics will also be offered through the course of the day.

Date: Friday, May 1, 2015

Location:        Calkin Hall, NSCC, Truro Campus, 36 Arthur Street, Truro

Schedule:

8:00-9:00 am               Project set-up and final registration.  

Parents and guardians are advised that due to an earlier accident on the southbound lane of the 102 Highway, and the resulting detour now in place, buses for Riverside Education Centre and Hants East Rural High School will be very late picking students up and taking them home this afternoon. The exact length of the delays are unknown at this time and are very much dependent on how quickly traffic along the detour route is travelling.

Late bus: Bus 183, driven by Gail Christison, serving Thorburn Consolidated School, is running 30 minutes behind this afternoon.
