The ASDN First Nation Education team would like to thank everyone who participated in Orange Shirt day on Friday, September 28. We had 52 submissions to our contest and a winner was chosen randomly from this list on Monday, Oct. 1.
Congratulations to Melanie Sobey, Grade 2/3 teacher at Blackville School who is the lucky winner and will receive $300 to purchase resources for her class.
Orange Shirt day was first acknowledged by 4 schools in ASDN in 2015 and this year we had all 30 schools participating! This is huge move forward toward Objective 6 of the NB 10 year Eduncation Plan, “...ensuring that provincial curriculum is reflective of First Nation history and culture.” Thanks so much.
