Mme Julie Roy’s Grade 5 French Immersion Class at Lou MacNarin School in Dieppe hosted guests from Place aux compétences and Expansion Dieppe for a demonstration of our robotics project. Students in Madame Roy's class are working on developing their coding skills and sharing htem with other students in the school. The children are able to control Dash and Dot with an app on our iPads. The children are able to make the robots move, light up, play music, tell jokes and follow obstacle courses.
Part of the financing to purchase the robots was made possible through Expansion Dieppe’s contribution to the Place aux compétences project development fund, which was earmarked to finance one project per school in the community. These robots are also being used by other classes at the school. More details and pictures can be viewed at

Lou MacNarin's Community Christmas Tree.
Stacy McQueen and Christina Rossiter, early years art teachers have spent some time decorating a Christmas Tree in the foyer of Dieppe City Hall with ornaments that were created by our early years students. The holiday traditions are represented through crafty ornaments that were made by our students. Please join in our community in celebrating the season by visiting the forest of celebration trees in City Hall.
