Deputy Premier Diana Whalen, Grade 8 Bayview Education Centre student Abby Walker and Communities, Culture, and Heritage Minister Tony Ince cut the celebratory cake at the official launch of Nova Scotia Heritage Day.
Abby Walker, representing her Grade 8 class at Bayview Education Centre, joined Communities, Culture, and Heritage Minister Tony Ince and Deputy Premier Diana Whalen at the official launch of Nova Scotia Heritage Day at Province House on Friday, February 6, 2015. This year the holiday celebrates African Nova Scotian Viola Desmond.
Last year, Bayview Education Centre’s Grade 7 class with guidance from their teacher, Chrissy Hawley, participated in the provincial naming contest for the holiday. Bayview Education Centre is one of three winning schools recognized for their submission. Congratulations to all students on taking the initiative to be part of this important learning opportunity!
