6 Goal 3: To Achieve Equitable Learning Opportunities for All Students Each year, the Delmore “Buddy” Daye Learning Institute (DBDLI) Awards for Excellence in African Nova Scotian History are presented to students whose submissions best exemplify the contributions that African Nova Scotians have made to the history, heritage and culture of our province and our country. This year, DBDLI received a record number of entries. Classes and individuals submitted more than 1300 entries from across the province. Congratulations to all award recipients from the HRSB! Special thanks to the teachers who took advantage of this rich and relevant hands-on learning opportunity. Here’s a bit of what the awards ceremony looked like on March 6, along with some of the winning entries: Wanda Robson, Viola Desmond’s sister, offers words of wisdom to Oxford students before performing in the events ceremony.
