We now have the schedule for the Annual Parent Network Conference finalised.  The day is an opportunity for volunteers to network and exchange information and ideas for your local home and school, SAC or other parent/school volunteer group.

We will be hosting the day and facilitating discussion topics such as exploring your role as a volunteer and how you can make a difference. There will also be an opportunity during the day for an open forum where we will be encouraging you to bring forward any concerns or difficulties you may be experiencing and as well as celebrating and sharing success stories.  The open forum will be used by NSFHSA to identify areas where we can assist parents/guardians/volunteers and focus our attention for the upcoming year.  NSFHSA is the officially recognised voice of parents in Nova Scotia.

The Conference is an opportunity for parents, guardians, and people interested in education to come together to hear guest speakers, to use as personal development for increasing knowledge on education matters, meet other parents and share information that you can take back to your local schools and communities. Each year NSFHSA aims to include information that is current and is reflective what is happening in Education in Nova Scotia.

NSFHSA will be celebrating Education Week 2018 which begins April 16.  During this week teachers, administrators and education staff are celebrated for their contributions to students' education across Nova Scotia. 

Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter as we celebrate Education Week.
Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week (TSAW) was initiated by the Canadian Home and School Federation in 1988.

The purpose of this week is to encourage parents and the wider community to recognize the personal and professional contributions that teachers and school staff make to children and their education.

TSAW lets teachers and staff know they are appreciated and that parents and the wider community want to work with them on the same team.  

Please join NSFHSA in celebrating TSAW from February 11 to 17, by sharing the poster on social media, in schools and the wider community.
