On Tuesday,  September 3rd, a number of ASD-N middle and high schools will be providing orientation programs for newly arriving students. The middle school program called “WEB” (Where Everybody Belongs) and the high school program “Boomerang”, are designed to help with the orientation and transition to middle and high school respectively.  For the participating middle schools, only grade 6 students attend school that day and only grade 9 students attend participating high schools. The programs led by teachers and volunteer returning  students, include an assembly, small group “ice breaking” activities and the following of a condensed daily class schedule  in the afternoon. The programs give new students an opportunity to feel some ownership of their new school, the feeling that they are welcome and belong there and a chance to become familiar with their new surroundings in a fun, positive and non-threatening atmosphere. Participating schools are  Blackville, Dr. Losier M.S. , Harkins M.S.,  JMH, MVHS, NSER,  Bonar Law, EWG, Bathurst H. S., Dalhousie Regional H. S. and Sugarloaf Senior H. S.
