New Frontiers School Board takes on Bullying!
Schools across the board took part in the Anti bulling camping by wearing a Pink T-Shirt on February 22nd. Pink Shirt Day is a day that promotes individuality and the acceptance of others. Each school did something different to support the initiative from wearing pink on the 22nd to OES creating their own shirts; Hemmingford having a student led assembly, Gault showering each other in compliments and hugs and many other great activities!
The Community Learning Centre (CLC) approach is the creation and promotion of partnerships which provide a range of services and activities, during and after the school day, to help meet the needs of our learners, their families and the wider community. The aim is to support the holistic development of our students, families and communities.
