NMBYOP (NO MORE BRING YOUR OWN PUMPKIN) 😦

Thank you to everyone that responded to the Halloween invite. Unfortunately, the Social Committee has decided to postpone this event. We are looking to host another event around the Christmas holiday. Happy Halloween!

A CHALLENGE FROM THE DEAN

Halloween fun in the Faculty of Education does not end with the postponement of our BYOP event….

Memorial Hall is not one of the haunted buildings on campus… or is it?   A Halloween door challenge is issued to all residents of Memorial Hall.  An esteemed panel of judges from the Education Society, will make the rounds on 31-Oct-2014 to determine the spookiest, freakiest, most-festive Halloween door.  Will it be yours?  (Dare ya’!)

HEALTHY CAMPUS COMMITTEE

After two Halloween announcements, this one is kind of like the house that gives out apples for trick or treat…

The Healthy Campus Committee is looking for a member from the Faculty of Education.  The Committee meets every couple of months, and you can read their mandate here.  If you would be interested in serving on this important committee, please contact Michelle Arbing.

My BEd course entitled, “ED449: Introduction to Indigenous Education” is now complete. Through this short note, I would like to share photos from the course, which included many community-based experiences.
