INTERNATIONAL DINNER RE-SCHEDULED

The International Dinner at the Jack Blanchard Family Centre has been re-scheduled to Saturday,  January 28, with a storm day of Sunday,  January 29th if necessary.
More details to follow shortly.

CHANGES TO CAMPUS HOLIDAY EVENTS

A campus committee created to review current practices and provide feedback to the Vice-President, Administration and Finance has concluded that some holiday events should be amalgamated.  Therefore, the Sugar Plum Luncheon and the community reception will not take place this year.

A President’s Holiday Social & Tree Lighting will be held on 06-Dec-2016 from 2 to 4 pm in McMillan Hall at the W.A. Murphy Student Centre where complimentary hors d’ouevres and refreshments will be served. The Office of the President will match donations to the UPEI Food Bank as done in previous years.

CAPTAIN NICHOLA GODDARD SCHOLARSHIP AWARD

At a gala dinner on Saturday, 19-Nov-2016, Julia Ross (BEd, ’17) received the Captain Nichola Goddard Scholarship from Nichola’s parents, Dr. Tim and Sally Goddard. Julia intends to use the scholarship to support her international practicum to Jokkmokk, northern Sweden, in February.

MURDER MYSTERY NIGHT IS FRIDAY

The Faculty of Education’s Murder Mystery Night, Ho Ho Homicide, is taking place this coming Friday, 25-Nov-2016 at 6:30pm in Main Faculty Lounge.  You can RSVP to Ashley in advance, or just show up at the last minute, as there will be extra elf and reindeer characters available.  No preparation necessary!  We hope you can make it!

CHANGES TO TRC EDUCATION DAY PLANS

The TRC Education Day for school children from the PEI has been amended to involve two phases. We felt that more time was needed to engage with Indigenous peoples regarding how they think this day should be designed.

Phase One will therefore be an “Engagement” session where teachers and other educators from the Department of Education and Early Learning and Culture join with Indigenous peoples from PEI, as well with Charlene Bearhead from the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation.

Phase Two (date to be decided) will include teachers and their students.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS

The Atlantic Provinces Library Association (APLA) will be holding its annual conference in Charlottetown from May 22-24, 2017.  This year’s conference is “Include. Imagine. Inspire // Inclure. Imaginer. Inspirer.” The APLA 2017 Program Committee invites proposals to be considered for presentation at the conference.  Details can be found on their webpage.
