Celebrating and Showcasing Student Achievement in Our Schools
The annual Education Week Mall Display showcases student work from all schools in Lunenburg County. This is the largest display of student work on the South Shore and all members of the community are invited to attend.
This year’s theme of Education Week: “Schools as Communities: Open Hearts, Open Minds, Open Doors” recognizes Nova Scotia educators who work to support student development by engaging the community through service learning, community projects and co-operative education. It also acknowledges the important role that local and regional community organizations play in quality public education.
Education Week, which is from April 19 to the 25, is a cooperative project between public education stakeholders in Nova Scotia. The NSTU, the Nova Scotia School Boards Association (NSSBA), the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, the Nova Scotia Federation of Home and School Associations, La Fédération des parents acadiens de la Nouvelle-Écosse, and the Association of Nova Scotia Educational Administrators are the education partners that organize the week.
