Thank You

September 29, 2022


After a challenging start to the week, we were able to resume classes in all 135 schools today, thanks to the hard work and long hours of many.

Thanks to all who had a hand in making the safe return possible for our 56,000 students and staff. We are grateful!

In the spirit of giving thanks… each September, we celebrate a special partnership between the HRCE and the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM), called the Supplementary Education Funding Agreement. This agreement provides fine arts learning opportunities and other enhancements in school, free-of-charge.

As outlined in the agreement, HRCE is to demonstrate how the resources are providing enhanced learning opportunities for children throughout HRM before the end of September each year.

While I know the timing is not ideal, I hope seeing the impact of this partnership on HRM’s youngest citizens will serve as a bright spot in an otherwise trying week.

On behalf of all HRCE students and families, I offer my sincere thanks to HRM Council for their leadership and continued support of Supplementary Education Funding. I also offer my thanks to you, our community, for continuing to make this all possible.

Here is our Supplementary Education Funding Community Brochure for September 2022.

As a reminder, tomorrow (Friday, Sept. 30) schools are closed to recognize the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. This is a day to acknowledge the legacy of residential schools, commemorate the children who never made it home and honour survivors and their families.

With gratitude,

Steve Gallagher
Regional Executive Director (Acting)
