Welcome

New Glasgow Academy is a state of the art P-8 facility in New Glasgow which opened in September 2014. NGA welcomes students form Acadia Street, Temperance Street, New Glasgow Junior High and our new grade 7 students arriving from A.G. Baillie. Our new school has many highlights we are very proud of. The artistic characteristics include a 19 foot totem pole depicting the history of the feeder schools, the strong athletic and musical reputation of New Glasgow schools celebrating the magnitude of the cultures we embrace. A colourful glass tile mosaic encompasses our town, our culture, our beliefs. In addition, each child entering NGA has completed an individual tile that is displayed throughout the school.

Our enhanced gymnasium with bleacher seating for 200 will allow our athletic program to continue to flourish. The outside of the gymnasium’s mural highlights the East River, The Sampson Trail, The New Glasgow Flourish symbol and the history of ship building in our town.

Outside the gymnasium is the first ever natural playground honouring the Children’s Aid Society of Pictou County. With the legacy fund, we have been able to provide a safe, interactive, play based area for the children of Pictou County.

NSTU Labour Action – Information for Parents & Guardians

NSTU beginning strike activity on December 5th

The Nova Scotia Teachers Union has announced that it intends to begin a strike action on Monday, December 5th at all schools in Nova Scotia.   

The NSTU has described the strike activity as a work-to-rule: Teachers will continue to teach in classrooms.  Teachers have been directed by the NSTU to stop any extracurricular activities like concerts, coaching teams or supervising clubs; field trips will not go ahead.  To be clear, this means that all holiday concerts, field trips and extra-curricular activities (whether planned for the afternoon, evening or during the school day) are cancelled as of December 5th and during the period of strike activity.

SchoolsPlus programming will continue during the planned strike action by the NSTU. Community use of schools will also continue, as we are able, for those organizations with signed facility use permits.

Changes to Morning Arrival / Afternoon Departure
The NSTU has also stated that teachers will arrive 20 minutes before school and leave 20 minutes after.

Morning arrival time at every school is 20 minutes before the first bell. Students who walk to school or are dropped off by a parent or guardian cannot arrive before this time. At the end of the school day, students who walk or are picked up by a parent or guardian cannot remain longer than 20 minutes after the final bell. Supervision will not be provided to students who walk or are dropped-off outside of these times.

More Information
More details about the impact of the NSTU’s strike activity will be available in the coming days.

Messages to parents and guardians may also be issued via text and email through the Alert system. If you are not yet signed up for Alert through your child’s school now would be a good time to do so. Contact your school office to begin this process.

Please continue to monitor the CCRSB website at www.ccrsb.ca/nstu-labour-action-information, as well as Facebook, twitter and the mainstream media for updates and developments.
