The new school in Miramichi West is scheduled to open in January 2017. This K-8 facility will welcome over 500 students grades K-8 and is a once in a lifetime opportunity for our students, parents and staff.
As part of the school naming process ASD-N has initiated a naming committee which will be responsible for submitting three names for the new school to the District Education Council. In order to facilitate this process we are asking the public to submit their choice for the name of the school.
Gretna Green Elementary School is currently undergoing renovations which will see the school expand to a K – 8 facility in September 2016. These are exciting times as the school will welcome approximately 100 students in grades 6 to 8 in September 2016. There will be new, modern learning spaces, new soccer field and an expanded parking area and new bus entrance. We are really looking forward to the completion of this exciting project!!

The BHS Music Memories is a group of students who came together after hearing about a study of how music awakens seniors with Alzheimer's. Music Memories has approximately 28 keen students who visit with seniors in local senior residences. During these visits the students learn valuable information regarding the senior's pastimes, hobbies and particular musical interests. From there the students research and upload MP3 players with specific music and loan them to the residents for their listening pleasure.
