The ASD-N First Nation Education team would like to thank everyone who participated in Orange Shirt Day on Friday, September 28th. We had 52 submissions to our contest and a winner was chosen randomly from this list on Monday, October 1st.
Congratulations to Melanie Sobey, Grade 2/3 teacher at Blackville School, who is the lucky winner and who will receive $300 to purchase resources for her class.
Orange Shirt Day was first acknowledged by four schools in ASD-N in 2015, and this year, we had all 30 schools participating! This is a huge move forward toward Objective 6 of the NB 10 Year Education Plan, "...ensuring that provincial curriculum is reflective of First Nation history and culture." Thanks so much!
