CORRECTION..on school calendar for 2011-12
The South Shore Regional School Board is objecting to the 2011-12 school calendar which gives Halifax Region and area students a spring break in February. Following that comes a Canada-Games-break that will allow them to attend or participate in the Games. Students in the rest of the province , however, get their spring-break in March.
The South Shore Board says spring break should be consistent for all schools across the province. The Board will send a letter to Education Minister Marilyn Moore expressing its concerns the calendar denies other students in the province an equal opportunity to attend the Games.
