2017 African Heritage Month theme honours past and present legacies of African Nova Scotians while looking forward to future greatness. Embracing the struggle and adversity that African Nova Scotians endured over the generations, the theme highlights their successes and bright path forward as Canada celebrates 150 years of confederation.
Annually, we celebrate the history, heritage and contributation of African Nova Scotians during the month of February and beyond.
Re: Examinations, January 24 to January 27
Questions arise weekly as the NSTU Work to Rule (WTR) continues. One of the big questions as the first semester winds up is about examinations. In our TCRSB high schools---and I understand across all high schools in Nova Scotia---examinations are going ahead as a matter of normal routine or practice. Examination schedules are or have been completed and examinations are being prepared.
Some questions need to be answered soon about how examination results will be communicated to students and families because WTR has placed limits on how report cards will be completed. These questions will be answered as soon as possible.
Please watch for subsequent information regarding any adjustments in our normal practices that may be required while WTR is in place.
I understand and appreciate how this disruption is difficult for students and families.
