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.
