Bessborough Global Awareness Fair Thursday June 7
Dear parents/guardians

This year, a group of Middle School students have been working extremely hard on a cross-curricular project focused on the United Nation’s 17 Goals for Sustainable Development. (http://worldslargestlesson.globalgoals.org/ )

Students have created games, products, and even STEM Designs to promote their Goals!  This project is part of our School's Deeper Learning Theory Program and also promotes the development of Global Competencies and is supported by an Action Research Project with the University of New Brunswick and The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development led by Mrs. Raworth, Mr. Murphy and Mme. Gautreau.

The format will be a showcase style fair, where students from multiple classrooms will be displaying, selling, and promoting their work.  You are invited to attend the fair, and view all of the fantastic work your child, and others, have completed.

The fair will be held in the gymnasium on Thursday, June 7th, from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

Funds raised from student products being sold, will be held in an account at the school, and students will be empowered to make a decision on where the funds will be spent (charitable organization in the community, global initiative, etc.)

We are hoping you will be able to attend this amazing event that promotes global awareness, and making a difference!
