Each year, on September 30th, ASD-N staff and students are invited to participate in “Orange Shirt Day”. This day is designed to educate and bring awareness to Canadians about the Canadian Indian residential school system that existed in our country and the impact it has had on Indigenous Communities and people for more than a century.
With recent news regarding the former Kamloops Indian Residential School, ASD-N would like to renew awareness.
“Wonder, Observe, and Explore” was the theme of the first ever NB Science Week and as the event concluded, over 2300 classes in our province did just that. Unable to host annual, face-to-face Science and STEM Fairs, representatives from all four Anglophone School Districts worked collaboratively to offer a weeklong virtual conference to raise awareness about the importance of Science in our lives today. Participation from students and staff in Anglophone North School District was outstanding.
