New School Calendar Resources from English Language School Board

Staff at the English Language School Board have worked hard over the last year to develop a standardized system for the board and its schools to maintain school calendar information.

The result is a new School Calendars page on the board's website, with a customized calendar for each school.

There's also a calendar that shows a list of all the events on all the calendars for all the schools, something that provides a great “bird's eye view” of the diversity of activities happening in Island schools.

The Learning Partnership, District Advisory Councils and Home and School

By now you’ve no doubt heard about the changes to the way education is governed and organized in Prince Edward Island announced this morning by Premier MacLauchlan.

The new model, dubbed the “Learning Partnership,” has some significant implications for home and school associations.

Building relationships: Details announced for semi-annual meeting of the P.E.I. Home and School Federation

Over the past month at schools across P.E.I., Home and School members have gathered for leadership training workshops, workshops focused on helping our local home and school associations become even more effective.

 

Home and School is a broad-based movement of parents, guardians, teachers, administrators and staff; to be an effective forum, local associations need local leaders, leaders who know how to run a meeting, keep track of the money, build relationships. Its those skills that our workshops have been focused on.

 

It’s that final point – building relationships – that will be the focus of this year’s Semi-Annual Meeting of the P.E.I. Home and School Federation, being held at Three Oaks Senior High School in Summerside on Tuesday, October 20 at 6:00 p.m.
