Welcome Back

August 28, 2014

We wish to welcome our students, staff, and parents to the 2014/15 school year.  We hope you have had an opportunity to relax and enjoy a beautiful Cape Breton summer.  As we begin another school year, we wish our graduates of 2014 well in their future career plans and welcome students and parents new to our Board.

Our focus will continue to be on student achievement, particularly in the areas of literacy and numeracy.  To this end, many of our teaching staff have been involved with our Programs department in professional development over the summer months.  Our technology staff has worked diligently over July and August to refresh computers in schools and continue improvements in our existing wireless infrastructure.

Our Human Resources department has worked throughout the summer to ensure that administrative and teaching vacancies are filled.  While both our Finance and HR departments have been preparing for the provincial business integration initiative, our Operations staff has managed a number of construction projects. As well, routine painting and repairs have been completed, our Transportation department has ensured our buses are ready, and now our cleaning staff is busy ensuring schools will be bright and shiny for opening day.

We wish to take this opportunity to thank all our staff for their commitment to create safe and comfortable environments to support student learning.

We are looking forward to another exciting school year for students and to working with all students, parents, and staff as partners in our Board’s goals:

  1. To prepare students for the 21st century by providing highly skilled staff and integrated curriculum.
  2. To provide safe, healthy and equitable learning and working environments for all staff and students.
  3. For all departments (Finance, Human Resources, Operations and Programs) to work collaboratively to maximize student access to programs and services.

Sincerely,

Lorne Green 
Board Chair
Beth MacIsaac
Superintendent of Schools

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE REGULAR BOARD MEETING
North Highlands Elementary
May 26, 2014
On May 26, 2014 the Board met for their Regular monthly meeting.
Correspondence was received from the Department of Education regarding TCA projects.
A presentation was made by students of North Highlands Elementary. Grade Four student Ali MacKinnon, Grade Five student Rory MacKinnon and Grade Six student Emma MacKinnon did their speeches from the public speaking competition. They also had a bullying video from the 2/3 class and a nutrition video from the P/1 class.
The presentations were excellent and very informative.
Mr. Ambrose White, Superintendent followed up with his report. (posted on the Board website) Highlights of his report included The Cape Breton-Victoria Regional School Board welcomes Minister of Education and Early Childhood Development, Karen Casey, on May 29th. Minister Casey will visit with the Board and discuss issues, concerns, trends and other topics. She will also be here to open the NSSBA Annual Meeting. I will be visiting schools with Minister Casey on Friday morning, May 30th. We will visit several schools within our Board, and I look forward to the opportunity.
The Minister announced another Schools Plus site for our Board to be located at John Bernard Croak School. This announcement took place on Friday, May 23, and this is once again providing a wonderful service to students and families in the Glace Bay area. Our site at Sherwood Park Education Centre has proven to be an extremely valuable program, and I am confident the new site in Glace Bay will be likewise. We hope to open a third site in the Northside area in the future to service Victoria County as well.

CBRM Youth Council

CBRM Youth Council
CBRM Youth Council Posted by Tom Baker (August 19, 2014)

For Immediate Release

Date: August 19, 2014 

Title: Looking for Young People to Get the CBRM Youth Council Started

 

The Cape Breton Regional Municipality (CBRM) Youth Council will be an important and diverse group of young leaders committed to making a difference in CBRM. The Youth Council will work on issues important to youth! Youth Council members represent young people will represent young people in the community. They will meet with leaders like the Mayor and Council, Police, Business leaders, and community groups to advocate for youth.

The Youth Council will have decision making authority over their budget; opportunity for training; support of an advisory group; and most important – the youth will decide the setup of the youth council.

Now, we are calling for committed young leaders between the ages of 16-22 with the time, energy, and passion to work for change to join the ‘CBRM Youth Council Start Up Committee.’ This committee will make important decisions on the formation of CBRM’s First Youth Council. They will make decide: the structure of the council (how many members, when do they meet, how are the youth chosen – are they elected, nominated, etc). This Start Up Committee will be a great opportunity to have your voice heard.

The Start Up Committee will begin meeting in early September 2014 (in the Mayor’s Boardroom at CBRM). So, please, if you are a young person between the ages of 16-22 we ask you to join the Start Up Committee. No prior experience and/or skills are necessary. We are hoping for a large group of interested young people from every area of the CBRM. The more opinions and ideas the better the Youth Council will be. This is your chance to make a difference in your community.

Note: The Start Up Committee is not the CBRM Youth Council. The Start Up Committee will decide the structure of the Youth Council. Once the structure for the Youth Council is decided, the Start Up Committee will be finished their task. This committee will have put a process in place to select the actual members of the First CBRM Youth Council.

If you are interested in being part of this exciting Start Up Committee, or if you would simply like more information, or to share your ideas, please contact one of the following on or before August 31, 2014.
