We encourage schools to share stories of teaching and learning to give the public a glimpse of what education looks like in 2018. identify as being of African descent at 10 junior high schools. Students are encouraged to learn more about their community, their heritage and themselves by taking part in the African Heritage Month Quiz. Learn more about this special partnership under Goal 4. All year round, our Diversity Team works to improve equitable learning opportunities for all students. Goal 3 highlights the work of HRSB’s two Culturally Relevant Pedagogy Specialists, and how they support classroom teachers in creating a culturally relevant learning environment for each student in their class simply by taking a student-centred approach. As we continue on our journey strengthening our system’s skills at being culturally relevant, I am particularly excited to support Principal Karen Hudson in sharing her exciting news about an Africentric Math Cohort set to begin at Auburn Drive High School (ADHS) this fall. This academic math course is specially designed to reflect the cultural characteristics, lived experiences and learning styles of those students who self-identify as being of African descent – and it’s the first of its kind for high school students in our province! As outlined under Goal 1, students who identify as being of African descent are underrepresented in academic math courses. The Africentric approach to academic math at ADHS aims to change this statistic. This is a significant step in HRSB’s journey to improve the academic achievement of African Nova Scotian learners. I offer my sincere thanks to Principal Hudson for bringing life to this vision. I look forward to watching this fantastic story unfold. Finally, I wish to thank our teachers, principals and support staff who make every effort to teach, reflect and honour African heritage, every day of the year. Owning this collective responsibility is an important step to ensuring great results for all students! Elwin LeRoux
