Students from the Yarmouth Cultural Academic Enrichment Program attended the April 14, 2015 Board Meeting and prsented the Board with poetry and songs.
The Yarmouth CAEP (Cultural Academic and Enrichment Program) in association with the Black Educators Association (BEA) has been operating in Yarmouth since the mid 1990's. The CAEP offers African Nova Scotian Youth Academic development, cultural, self-esteem, self-knowledge and study skills as well as peer mentors, field trips and leadership development. The program has been operating from Yarmouth South End School for the last 17 years.
Currently, the Yarmouth CAEP has been teaching about cultural self-esteem, inclusion and historically Black Music. The students were called up as their African Prides which were chosen by the students themselves as a way to teach about their African ancestry and teach about unity, community and pride in each class.
As part of the Yarmouth Central School 'Wolf
Packs' initiative, focusing on school climate, all Student Wolf Packs collected
food items for the Yarmouth Food Bank for the monthly challenge for March. All
collected food items will be donated to the local food bank.
