2014-2015: Change in School Day Start & End Times:

Embedded Time
Bluenose Academy will join all other SSRSB schools by participating in the Embedded Collaborative Learning Time model to enhance professional learning for teachers. There is overwhelming evidence that student learning and student engagement increase when teachers have opportunities to work together as collaborative learning teams. Our staff will be part of this Collaborative Learning Time model next year. This means that our start and end times each day, beginning in September, will change slightly.
Our instructional day will start at 8:25AM (instead of 8:30AM) and our dismissal at the end of each day will be 2:32PM (instead of 2:30PM).
Please note this change, as bus schedules in September will be revised each morning and afternoon to reflect these changes.  Also, please note that on the following dates, buses will dismiss from Bluenose Academy at 1:02PM to allow teachers and staff to participate with their collaborative learning teams on these afternoons.

Technology Engagement Learning Project (TELP)

Bluenose Academy, along with our School Advisory Council, is currently exploring the SSRSB initiative for students and families known as T.E.L.P. The Technology Engagement Learning Project (TELP) is a partnership between schools, community, businesses and organizations, families and their students, and the South Shore Regional School Board. Simply stated, the goal of this program is for every student to have access to an iPad to increase their engagement, learning and achievement.

The reality is that web-based tools and resources have changed the landscape of learning. Students now have at their fingertips unlimited access to digital content, resources, experts, databases and communities of interest. By effectively leveraging such resources, we not only have the opportunity to deepen student learning, but they can also develop digital literacy, fluency and citizenship that will prepare them for the high tech world in which they will live,
learn and work.

The South Shore Regional School Board, along with other progressive and innovative educational jurisdictions, are leading the province in achieving one-to-one technology. All of the students participating in T.E.L.P. in their particular school and grade level(s), would have access to an iPad 24/7, which they manage effectively with their families.  The South Shore Regional School Board will provide a monthly payment plan (such as $15.38 for an iPad Mini  or $25.00 for an iPad Air  over 24 months) that would allow parent(s) and / or guardian(s) the ability to purchase an Apple iPad for their child through an automatic payment plan system. The student would then own a powerful educational tool for use at home and at school.
