Stand Up, Speak out 2017

On Thursday, September 14th, students in CCRSB took part in the Stand Up, Speak Out Day.  This year's theme was" What's your story?"  At the Chignecto-Central Regional School Board, we know the only way to address bullying in all its forms is to start talking about it.

In the following picture, students at Dr. W. A. MacLeod are telling each other their stories in order to learn to appreciate each other's differences.


In some of the elementary classes, they read the book "Only One You".  After, they created beautiful fish to show how being different is great.

Battle of the Cat Food


The students from Dr. W. A. MacLeod Consolidated School and West Pictou Consolidated School were involved in a Cat Food Battle.  Students from both school collected dry or wet cat food that would all be donated to CARMA (Cat Rescue Maritimes).  When the final tallies were done, Dr. W. A. MacLeod students won the batlle by collecting 187 items to donate versus the 62 items that students from West Pictou Consolidated had collected.  A big thank you to all those who have made a donation from both schools.

Dr. W. A. MacLeod Goes Silent April 28, 2017

Dr. W.A. MacLeod Consolidated Goes Silent

April 28, 2017


Our school is participating in Free the Children’s “We are Silent” campaign.

We are going silent to show people that we care about other children who are not able to use their voices to speak up for their rights and freedoms.

April 28 is your chance to take action against this real problem.

Students who register to take part in this campaign promise to not talk from the time they receive their We are Silent sticker in homeroom until they leave at the end of the day. They will use their silence to show they care about other people in our world and local community. They will receive a participation sticker to wear on April 28 to show their teachers that they are participating and exempt from discussion. Participating students may use a small whiteboard or paper to communicate, but not their voice.

Registration for students in Grades 7 and 8 will take place April 12 to 13 in Mrs. Fulton’s Room. If you register, you are committing to collecting at least $5 in pledges.

Once registered, students will receive an information letter and pledge form on April 20. Students are encouraged to ask family and friends to support their silence by giving a monetary donation.  Fundraising will take place from April 20 to April 27.


Students in Primary to Grade 6 are invited to also go silent on April 28. Classroom teachers will choose a time during the day that works best for them and will choose a length of time that is “doable” for the age of their students. The students will receive a sticker to put on at the beginning of their silence to honour their participation. Students in P-6 are encouraged to bring in a toonie or loonie as a donation.

Money raised this year will be donated to Pictou County Roots for Youth and to Free the Children for school building in Haiti.

Get involved and take the Vow of Silence!

Thanks, The Leadership Team​
