Claude D. Taylor School News!

This week, the grade 5 students at Claude D. Taylor had a visitor from DR Recycling. Mr. Shaffer talked to the class about the importance of recycling, as well as educated them on the various types of products that can and cannot be re-used or recycled. The grade 5 students have been working hard to develop business prototypes for their entrepreneur projects. The students started out with the question "What is a need in your home, school or community?". The students worked in groups to come up with a problem, as well as a plan to help alleviate the problem. Many of the students looked to the 3R's: Reduce, Re-use, Recycle. The students were creative in their thinking and wanted to find ways to help the planet. One of the groups, named EcoSketch, realised that a lot of paper goes to waste at school. One of the students in this group also really loves to draw. They decided to learn how to make recycled paper and created their very own recycled sketchbook! Another group, named DEHAR, found that CO2 emissions were causing Global Warming, and that on top of that, gas prices were skyrocketing, so they have been working hard to find a way to make a prototype of a solar powered car.  A third group, named Re-Designed Accessories, decided to re-use previously worn clothing to make new accessories such as scrunchies, purses, pencil cases, etc. The students not only have been learning how to create a business model, but also how to be environmentally conscious.

United First Nations Youth Summit awarded bursary

DSC_1454.jpg
Several staff and students at RHS spent much of the school year, including the Youth Leadership Forum in Fredericton in November, planning their United First Nations Youth Summit for Indigenous youth across the 15 First Nation communities in NB, as well as Riverview’s student body. 

The Summit modeled the United Nations, where delegates participated in a variety of committee discussions and workshops around the topics of education, social justice, health & wellness, the environment, and economics. 

The Summit served two main purposes – to raise awareness around all four pillars of sustainability, as previously listed, and to unite Indigenous and non- Indigenous students. 

At the closing, delegates presented their “calls to action” for moving forward in their respective communities and forming partnerships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth.

JMA Armstrong High School News!

Armstrong High School students in 3D studies and Visual Arts 9 worked with artist Amy Ash through an artist in residency.  The Artist-in-Residency School Program funds art projects which are based on Fine Arts curricular outcomes and are a collaboration between one or more teachers and one or more artists. This program is jointly funded by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development and the department of tourism, heritage and culture. The artist in residency which was awarded to fine arts students was titled, “The Home/Land: Interdisciplinary Visual Explorations.” Through this project, the 3D studies students created plaster casts of objects that speak of the local area of Salisbury. The objects have a white finish because the Visual Art 9 students created a photo project that is projected overtop of the sculptural installation. Additionally, the grade 9 students have collected field recordings to create a soundscape.  Ash guided students toward a greater appreciation of their own technical and creative thinking in making this large scale, interdisciplinary sculpture. Instruction focused on the teamwork which was required to ensure the installation has a cohesive aesthetic and message. The subject of the sculpture and photography was inspired by the rural landscape of Salisbury farmland, the community, and Armstrong High School, which will give students an awakening of their observation of the beauty of the community they live in.

International Education News!

Why Support International Education?

Cultural Diversity- Currently, students from 17 countries have been accepted into our New Brunswick International Student Programme. These students enrich the culture of the schools and communities in which they live. 

Economic benefits-Research indicates that every full time student contributes 25,000 dollars to the community. This year Anglophone East hosted 193 full time students, resulting in a 4.8 million dollar benefit to our economy.

Relationship Building- A key to a successful international experience is establishing strong bonds with family and peers. As a result of these positive relationships, more and more students are considering NB as a place to live.

Ways to support International Education

Become a Host Family-Opportunities exist to host students in grades 6-12, for varying lengths of time. Financial compensation is paid to homestay families.

Become a Respite Provider-Opportunities exist to provide weekend or holiday homestay for students when their host families are away. Financial compensation is paid for respite care.

Become a Volunteer -Share your expertise and passion with international students. Offer to teach a skill or lead a group in an activity that will enrich an international student's experience!
