Graham Middle School of Rexton is off to a tremendous start towards creating a multi-sensory room for its Methods and Resource teachers for their work with students with special educational needs. The Cartier Co-op, located in Richiboucto, has donated $5 000, a big first step in the school’s efforts to raise the $14 000 needed.

The New Brunswick
Children’s Foundation, (NBCF) based in Saint John NB, has donated $6000.00
to Miramichi Valley High School for the school’s breakfast program. This
program is designed to feed students who don’t get a breakfast before getting
