New year and New Initiatives for Students and Teachers

This being year two of Nova Scotia's Action Plan for Education, there are many more exciting initiatives for students at all grade levels‎ this school year.

Students in grades 7 to 12 will learn coding through events, such as the Hour of Code and STEAM Olympics, and courses‎, such as Computer Programming 12. Coding promotes problem solving, teamwork, critical thinking, creativity and innovation.  These skills are not only‎ related to learning math, science and the arts, but‎ they are also directly linked to many careers, including computer programming and the marine industries.

To help more students succeed in math, additional ‎supports will be made available for both teachers and students. Career education outcomes will assist students as‎ they begin thinking about their futures and the many possibilities ahead. To learn more about what‎ is new this year, go to to sign up for ongoing updates from the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development.
