The Central Québec School Board will undertake drinking water quality tests in all its establishments
In a letter sent to school board chairs, the Minister of Education, Jean-François Roberge, mentions that an initiative is underway to ensure that all schools in Québec have good water quality in their buildings. In this letter it is indicated that devices to analyze drinking water will be delivered to school boards at the latest at the beginning of 2020.
From November 18th to 22nd, 2019 As part of the Education Professionals’ Week, the Central Québec School Board wishes to highlight their important contribution to realizing the potential of our students. Let’s take this week as an opportunity to show them our appreciation!
On September 21st, 2019, a special activity took place about 15 km from the community of Kawawachikamach, on the shore of Lake Attikamagen in Labrador. Organized in collaboration with Ms. Loretta Robinson, a young and much-respected educator from Kawawachikamach, and documented by a photographer from the First Nations Education Council, the Land-Based Learning Day was intended as a culmination of a week of induction activities for all Jimmy Sandy Memorial School staff with the added twist that Elders and other community members were also present, helping share various aspects of their culture, traditions and knowledge.
The first ever conference of this kind at CQSB was held on November 10, 2018. Hosted by Dollard-des-Ormeaux School in Shannon, with members of the student council as delegates and members of the leadership team. A great experience for all!
