Programs

Early Literacy

We would like to invite all members of the community with children 0-5 years to join us at Cape St. Francis Elementary school for our biweekly Early Literacy sessions. This program is aimed at helping parents and caregivers build their child's literacy skills through a variety of interactive activities, read-a-loud sessions, activity sheets, games, and a book exchange. The sessions are held every second Wednesday from 7-8 pm.

For more information drop by our next session or call the school at 335-2962 and ask for the Early Literacy team. Come visit with other parents, speak with educators, and join the fun. Hope to see you there!

School Lunch

The School Lunch Association is a registered charity whose mission is to operate a non-stigmatizing program that provides a hot, nutritious lunch for school children, regardless of a families’ financial situation. All orders are Confidential. We ask $3.75 per meal, but each family decides the amount they can contribute toward the cost of the meal.

Online orders can be made at www.schoollunch.ca.

Kiss and Ride Program

Kiss and Ride is done each morning by administration. Teachers and volunteers greet the students in the cars and open their doors. It ensures safety for all. Parents drive up and children get out of vehicles. There is no parking in the Kiss and Ride lane which is clearly marked for all drivers.

It’s a great way to ensure safety and meet the children each day.

Bullying: Awareness and Prevention

Bullying is typically repeated behaviour that is intended to cause harm to another person(s). A person participates in bullying if they directly carry out, assist or encourage the behaviour in any way. Those that engage in bullying behaviour are perceived to be in a position of power. Bullying can be physical, verbal, social and/or electronic. In some circumstances bullying is an illegal activity. (SACS Policy, 2013. EECD).

Individuals who bully say or do something intentionally hurtful to others and they keep doing it, with no sense of regret or remorse - even when targets of bullying show or express their hurt or tell the aggressors to stop.

Internet and Social Media Safety

The Newfoundland and Labrador English School District recognizes our students are facing increasing challenges and pressures from social media and the Internet. While we are aware there are many positives associated with these technologies, we also acknowledge that at times they may be used inappropriately. Great strides in educating our students about Internet and social media safety have been made in recent years, but we believe we can and should do even more. Our Internet and Social Media Safety (ISMS) Program continues to provide our students with important information and instruction on the use of such communications mediums, playing a key role in helping young learners make good decisions in real life and online.
