Please forward this error screen to 43. And you won’t stop either when you read this TRCA nominated title! Students from Parrsboro Regional Elementary participated with many students SPO pre-school education staff donning sports jerseys. Hants East’s 5th Shave for the Brave was another success!
At the Chignecto-Central Regional Centre for Education, we know the only way to address bullying in all its forms is to start talking about it. That’s why we annually host Stand Up.

At the 2012 MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was asked his advice to college students and graduates who want to break into the sports industry.
Cuban cited factors such as ridiculously low pay and saturation of the market among other reasons why graduates should not seek entry level positions in sports. While his response seemed like a candid remark that came off as a joke, there definitely was truth to his words. I laughed when I first read the story of Cuban’s response. I thought, well of course, it is easy for a billionaire and owner of a sports franchise to say that. What about the students who are passionate about sports?
