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.

New Skilled Trades Centre Opens at Glace Bay High School


A new skilled trades centre will offer more opportunities for Glace Bay High School students.

Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal Minister Geoff MacLellan, on behalf of Education and Early Childhood Development Minister Karen Casey, officially opened the new centre today, Oct. 17.

"Skilled trades centres allow our students to learn and experience potential careers such as plumbing or carpentry in a school setting," said Mr. MacLellan. "This centre represents an investment in the future for students from Glace Bay and surrounding areas by providing real-life work experience to help them prepare for future opportunities in skilled trades."

The centres have been specifically designed by educators, trades people and members of industry. Glace Bay High School's centre has more than 2,400 square-feet of instructional space.

"Glace Bay has a long and proud history of developing skilled tradespeople," said Glace Bay High School student council co-president Makayla Roberts. "The skilled trades centre links the past to the future, a future full of promise and opportunity for the youth of our community."

With the new centre, Glace Bay students can access courses such as:

  • Skilled Trades 10, which gives an overview of all trades and focuses on using basic hand tools
  • Construction Trades 11, which helps students develop skills essential to the construction trades and put them into use

Additional courses are expected to be added next year.

"This program means exciting new possibilities for hands-on learning for our students," said Theresa MacKenzie, Glace Bay High School principal. "They can explore courses that will better prepare them for continuing education in their chosen careers."

There are 11 skilled trades centres across the province.
