NL Student Oral History Project

We are collecting family stories about what is happening in Newfoundland and Labrador during the Covid-19 pandemic! Students are invited to create a video or voice memo interview with someone in their bubble about their experiences during the pandemic & submit it for archiving and a possible future physical or virtual exhibit at The Rooms!

New Online NLESD Resource

The Newfoundland and Labrador English School District is launching a resource to assist and guide families with continued learning opportunities while in-school instruction remains suspended. The resource, Learning at Home: Good at Learning-Good at Life

(http://learningathome.nlesd.ca)

is a Google site, a platform familiar to our students and staff. The site will provide opportunities to foster a passion for learning through engaging online and offline adventures and activities.

For now, there is no expectation for families to be teachers and there is no expectation for teachers to assign grades or values to any work students complete while they are at home. However, students are encouraged to share their learning and routines with their teachers for feedback.
