On April 9, 2014 students of the Lunenburg County Youth Advisory Committee received the Minister’s Award for Leadership in Crime Prevention, acknowledging their work in the areas of bullying, substance abuse and sexual harassment.
The theme for the 2014 symposium was Collaborating for Community Safety. The students attended the event which included presentations about reducing gun violence, resolving conflict in a productive manner, and redirecting at-risk youth behaviour toward more positive activities.

These are just a few of the conversation points planned for the meeting.

A grade 5 science class from Bridgewater Elementary recently participated in the Discovery Centre's Reel Science Competition and brought home first place! Students from across the province produce a science video based on classroom curriculum. Their video, titled "Coldfinger" investigated the physical properties of water.
The Reel Science Film Competition invites Grade 4 to 6 classes to produce a short film on any science topic. The Bridgewater Elementary winning film will be featured at the 2014 ViewFinders Film Festival!
The students, along with teacher Mr. Eisnor, attended a gala viewing to see their video on the big screen and accept their award. Congratulations!
