Three CCRSB educators recognized at provincial ceremony

On April 20th, the Minister of Education and Early Childhood Development, educators, administrators, family and friends gathered at École du Carrefour in Dartmouth to celebrate the 2015 Education Week Award recipients. CCRSB was pleased to be represented by three outstanding recipients: Kathy Wells, Cumberland North Academy; Shana MacPherson, Debert Elementary; and Karri Ann Noel, West Pictou Consolidated School. 

Hats off to the students and staff of Brookfield Elementary! The school recently had a Hat Day to raise money for earthquake relief in Nepal. With donations from students, staff and the Home and School, $706.80 was raised. With the Federal Government matching donations, the total rises to $1,413.60! The donation will be processed through the Canadian Red Cross. Well done Brookfield Elementary! 

On behalf of the elected members and staff of the Chignecto-Central Regional School Board (CCRSB) I would like to extend a very warm welcome to students – and their families – beginning their journey with us, and those returning for another year.

On Thursday, September 24, 2015, senior high science students throughout the Chignecto Family of Schools (Cumberland County) were invited to the First Annual Cumberland Energy Authority's Energy Symposium. Students were able to listen to energy researchers and experts in the field of renewable energy as well as learn about the renewable energy resources that exist in Cumberland County. Students then traveled to FORCE outside of Parrsboro to learn about their role in renewable energy development with respect to tidal power generation.

Tom Nepjuk, of the Pugwash Seventh Day Adventist Church, recently presented Cyrus Eaton Elementary School a cheque for $536. “These funds will gratefully be put towards our school breakfast program, I’m continuously impressed by the generosity of the people in Cumberland County and now Pugwash," said principal, Steve Wells. Each year the church group decides on a program or organization to support; the funds from their annual community dinner are then directed to that selected program or organization.

What's your back-up plan when classes are cancelled? 

The days are getting colder and with each dip in the thermometer we move one step closer to winter weather: icy roads, snow and freezing rain. For CCRSB schools, winter weather means the potential cancellation of classes when conditions are considered unsuitable for our students. It also means that parents and guardians need a back-up plan in place before cancellations happen.
