February Vibes

Remember the days when going down a snowbank was the only reasonable reaction to snow? We might have been shorter then... On this cold and crisp day, I hope we are getting out of snow piles and into snow pants to have some fun with children outdoors. And when you get inside (possibly with a cup of hot chocolate), here is some PD training and updates for you.

NEW RESOURCES TO SUPPORT CRP
(Culturally Responsive Practice)

Introducing the new Gaelic Cultural Collection!

We are excited to unveil the first of the four cultural collections that help ECEs, students, children, and families to learn about the four historical cultures of Nova Scotia. With the input of the Gaelic community, we collected and organized books for children and adults, artifacts, music, and hands on materials that invite an exploration and highlight different aspects of our shared heritage in Nova Scotia. This collection was curated by Kenneth Mackenzie, Shay MacMullin, Eamag Dhòmhnullach, and Erin MacKinnon and funded by the Department of Gaelic Affairs. You can see all materials in our online catalogue by searching for 'Gaelic'. 


The books for adults highlight stories and the culture of the Gaelic people and books for children (in both languages) provide a playful invitation to exploring the language and the popular tales and beliefs.
