WHEC Students and Staff Take Learning Outdoors


Earlier in March, students and staff of West Hants Education Centre travelled to Camp Chaswood in the Musquodoboit Valley for a three-day winter camping and learning experience. They braved the elements to learn outdoor survival skills, as well as lessons on environmental sustainability, physically active living, planning and preparation, leadership and more.


MRHS Students Try Goalball with Help from Classmate


Earlier in March, the coach and members of the Nova Scotia Provincial Goalball teams conducted a workshop on this fast-paced, challenging sport with Middleton Regional High School middle level students. Initially developed after World War I as a sport for people with visual impairments, goalball is a popular sport around the world, with high level national and international competitions.


MRHS student Mason Smith was one of the goalball players demonstrating and teaching the sport to his classmates at MRHS. He has also helped demonstrate goalball to students in Bridgetown. Mason was recently invited to compete with the New Brunswick Provincial Junior goalball team at a national competition in Ontario later in March. Congratulations and good luck at the competition, Mason, and thank you for sharing goalball with students in our region!

LESES Students Study Inventors of African Descent


As part of a classroom assignment, Grade 5 students at L.E. Shaw Elementary School conducted research on inventors and innovators of African descent, both current and throughout history. The students discovered an amazing array of inventors whose work has improved health, saved lives, or expanded our knowledge of the world, in addition to many inventions that are commonly found in our homes (potato chips, anyone?). To demonstrate what they learned, the students made models of the various inventions and wrote biographies of the inventors and their work.
