The Collaborative Learning Day previously scheduled for Thursday, December 8th has been cancelled. Instead of students dismissing 90 minutes early on this day, students will remain in class for the full day, and busses will leave at the regular dismissal time.
The evening prior to We Day, Sarah Nasir and other students from across Atlantic Canada, Sarah being the youngest, were invited to a special ceremony at Pier 21 in Halifax. An evening of inspiration to celebrate youth who live Me to We, the evening acknowledges youth actions and the potential that these young people possess to create positive change in the world. At the ceremony, 8 youth from across Atlantic Canada received awards. Sarah, the youngest attendee and Tri-Counties' own grade 5 student from Meadowfields Community School, won the first ever Canadian WE Award presented by Craig Kielburger, founder of Free the Children.
