October 20-24, 2014, is School Bus Safety Awareness Week in Nova Scotia
October 20-24, 2014, is School Bus Safety Awareness Week in Nova Scotia. To raise awareness about school bus safety, both the RCMP and the Strait Regional School Board will be undertaking several initiatives this week and in the coming weeks.
The RCMP will be increasing patrols and enforcement in school bus areas. Schools will be delivering the School Board’s annual student bus safety program to all Grades Primary to Six students. This program teaches students many aspects of bus safety including how to behave while on the bus, walking to and from the bus stop and how to get off and move safely away from the bus, to name a few. In addition, the School Board has developed a brochure entitled, School Bus Safety: A Guide for Students and Parents/Guardians. The brochure contains valuable information for families along with highlighting the rules of bus safety, student safety and evacuation procedures. This brochure can be accessed in the Document Depot section of the School Board’s web site, www.srsb.ca.
The safe actions of all drivers help to ensure that our students travel safely to school. Students, parents/guardians, motorists, the school bus driver, teachers, the RCMP and School Board Transportation Department staff share the responsibility for bus safety. By working together, we will ensure that the bus trip is a safe one.
For more information, please refer to the Nova Scotia School Bus Safety website at www.schoolbussafety.ca and the Safety Services Nova Scotia website at www.safetyservicesns.ca.
Strait Regional School Board Celebrates Mi'kmaq History Month 2014
Photo excerpt from the Nova Scotia Office of Aboriginal Affairs website
Each October, school communities focus on the history, culture and achievements of the Mi’kmaq community. This is also an opportune time for each of us to reflect on our own understanding of the contributions and traditions of the Mi’kmaq community. The theme of Mi’kmaq History Month 2014 is A’tukwen – Communication. Stories and teachings have been passed on verbally from generation to generation for thousands of years. Often, storytelling uses impressive mythical characters to teach us about the Mi’kmaq culture, history and world. The Strait Regional School Board encourages students, staff, parents/guardians and community members to share in the celebration of Mi’kmaq History Month 2014 during the month of October and throughout the year.
