On May 10, every student at Bridgetown Regional HS is taking part in a one-day violence prevention conference called SAVE (Students Assist in Violence Education). Working with SchoolsPlus Annapolis and local RCMP, the SAVE student planning committee has helped to organize this event, including selecting workshop topics that aim to empower and educate students on important topics such as mental wellness, online/social media safety, healthy relationships, gender stereotypes, domestic violence, and more.
On March 4, several student teams from AVRSB schools took part in the 12th Annual Robot Programming Competitions at Acadia University, the provincial championships for First Lego League and Lego Robotics groups. Joining the competition were school teams from Kings County Academy, Northeast Kings Education Centre, Wolfville School, Annapolis West Education Centre and Horton High School. In addition, several community/neighbourhood teams from across our region also took part.
