Celebrating Black History Month

PLFN School students had many learning opportunities during Black History Month.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we couldn’t have any in person guest speakers, but anti-racist activist Henderson Paris visited our classrooms via Zoom and inspired us with his stories of struggle against racism and hope for the future.

Taking the Roof Off Winter

Our Physical Education teacher makes sure our students get to learn and be physically active in the great outdoors. Pictou Landing First Nation Fisheries and Band Council purchased bright orange safety vests for our outdoor excursions.Recently students in Grades Primary to Grade 6, participated in Ecology Action Centre’s and Recreation Nova Scotia’s #WinterWalkDay2021 Students walked a pre-hiked 1km loop and soaked up lots of fresh air and enjoyed the warmer temperatures in the process!

Boat Painting Workshop

Our Grade 7/8 students had the wonderful opportunity to work with renowned Mi’kmaw artist Alan Syliboy in painting cultural symbols on a boat they built when they were in Grade 5 and 6.This boat will be on display at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in Halifax.

Tech Integration

Our Technology Integration teacher works with teachers and support staff to integrate technology across the curriculum. Here two Primary students are being introduced to the Osmo technology. A great example of learning through play!
