The seven-point plan sets out the actions Nova Scotians can take and the choices they can make to revitalize our province over the next 10 years. It has achievable objectives and can be implemented with an eye toward urgency, while also addressing issues detrimental to our long term success. The plan focuses on near-term economic opportunities, plus longer-term investments in education for our youth. We believe the actions we are recommending will make Nova Scotia stronger - economically, socially and culturally.

NSFHSA is proud to announce that we have partnered with the Canadian Cancer Society to promote their new program “Trottibus”.

The Samuel R. Laycock Memorial Award was presented to Greg MacKinnon, Principal at Prince Andrew High School The Maybelle Durkein Health Advocacy Award was presented to Linda Wentzell (retired teacher).

I would like to begin by saying thank you to my Board or Directors for all their dedicated hours to improving education in Nova Scotia for all families.

The past year was very challenging for families in Nova Scotia with many changes to education and moving forward how education will look.

The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development will continue to work through the school year to ensure the changes taking effect will have as little disruption to students as possible.

Minister Casey and the Department are focused to ensure the changes over the next five years improve the education system in Nova Scotia. The Nova Scotia Action Plan on Education is expected to renew, rebuild, and refocus the system. The benefits will be felt by students and their families as well as teachers, support staff, and will effect university education and the business communities. The changes are a huge step!
