Join us and hundreds of others across Canada and wear an orange shirt on Wednesday, September 30 to honour the children who survived the Indian Residential Schools and remember those that didn’t. Every Child Matters. We will wear orange shirts in recognition of the harm the residential school system did to children’s sense of self-esteem and well-being, and as an affirmation of our commitment to ensure that everyone around us matters.
Staff and students braved the elements as they took part in the Terry Fox Run and Walk. Every year Elsipogtog School raises money for this event. Students have until Friday Sept 30th to bring in their pledge sheets and money. Thank you for your support.
Welcome back to school staff and students. Once again there are many changes to the staff and events happening at Elsipogtog School. We ask everybody to check our site often as we will do our best to keep everybody up to date. First major event is the Teacher Meet and Greet next Tuesday the 20th. Stay tuned for details.
Grade 3 had a special guest visit their classes today, Kurrgan (Robert Maillet). From Bouctouche, former WWF wrestler and now actor answered hundreds of questions from some real excited students. He even had a few moves for Mr. Savoy!
Check out the new image galleries from our latest activities. Homeroom Wars were hilarious as a huge amount of students participated at a chance to win a class pizza party. Calculations are not quite ready yet. Stay tuned for the announcement.
Heritage Night was also a great success. We had presentations from Elder Josie and Chief Aaron, followed by drumming and singing with Jonathan Augustine, Karen Francis and Natasha Sock. Rylan Sock and Madisson Milliea performed dance routines and Holly Jane Sock sang Ninen Na Migematjiitjg.
