Janeway Jamarama Day 2018
“The Janeway Children’s Health & Rehabilitation Centre provides excellence in specialized health care in a compassionate, supportive environment, to our province’s sick and injured children.”
The Janeway Jamarama Day is taking place this Friday, October 19th, and we are excited to be taking part! “This event has become one of [the] most important fundraising events, with thousands of kids and adults across the province wearing their pajamas to school or work in support of the Janeway. It’s an event that has everyone feeling all ‘warm and fuzzy’ as every donation helps to ensure the children of Newfoundland and Labrador continue to get the best medical care possible at the Janeway.”
On Friday, students can come to school dressed in their favourite pajamas, and we are asking families, if able, to send along a donation to the Janeway. Families are able to donate either directly through the school or online at http://janewayfoundation.nf.ca/ways-to-give/online-donations/
We can’t wait to see your jammies!
Lost & Found
We have many items in our lost and found section. See anything your child owns? Please have your child pick it up in the main corridor.
We are very excited for our Walk to Breakfast on Wednesday, October 3rd at 9am. In order to support our efforts, we are asking for a donation (either monetary or food item). All donations received will be matched by the Kids Eat Smart Foundation, which means we will double our efforts! You can donate directly to the school, or through the Kids Eat Smart website by clicking this link: https://www.canadahelps.org/s/2w39R . Also, a reminder for students to return their Walk to Breakfast permission slips to the school by Monday.
<<< A huge thank you to our friends at Kyle's Independent Grocer who raised $1140 which is matched by the Kids Eat Smart Foundation for a total of $2280 for our Breakfast Program!!!

In August 2012, 17 educators in Newfoundland and Labrador (NL) embarked on a two-week long institute to explore the possibilities of Relationships First: Restorative Justice in Education. Beginning with an exploration of their own core beliefs and values, the educators dug deep to reflect on the many relationships that make up their school community and began their journey toward creating and sustaining healthy, inclusive relationships in schools. Since then, many others involved in education in NL have discovered the benefits of restorative justice in schools. In 2014 Relationships First: Restorative Justice in Education Consortium* was formed and engaged a wide variety of education stakeholders within and outside of the traditional schooling systems.
