New Middle School - Liverpool


THE SOD HAS TURNED AND CONSTRUCTION IS WELL UNDER WAY


Students and families from Liverpool will soon have a new school to replace the aging South Queens Junior High on the same site.

The province is investing $15 million for the South Queens school construction project, with $8.5 million as part of the 2012-2013 capital plan. The school will be the first in Nova Scotia designed to support project-based learning, a modern and innovative method of teaching and learning.

"The province is putting kids and learning first by building a school that will provide learning opportunities for students to thrive in a changing world," said Vicki Conrad, MLA for Queens, on behalf of Education Minister Ramona Jennex. "It is wonderful for families in Liverpool to have a new school built in the heart of their community."
 
"It is with much enthusiasm that we embrace all the wonderful opportunities this project represents for the Liverpool area," said Vernon Oickle, school steering team member.
 
South Queens Junior High School has about 300 students in Grades 7 to 9. The new middle school will be for grades 6 to 8, with Grade 9 students going to Liverpool Regional High School. The school is expected to be completed in September 2013.
 
YET ANOTHER GREAT PROJECT FOR LIVERPOOL

Avon Calling

and my name is Anne Perry. I am an Avon Representative and a Unit Leader with a growing Avon team. My team has representatives that work for themselves, allowing everyone to make the money they deserve. As one of the largest manufacturers of beauty products, Avon is a household name. But we are so much more than just a beauty company. We are a fortune 500 company that sells over 1000 products in our catalogues. Avon is a company that gives YOU the opportunity to share with anyone and everyone the ability to have your own company. To be in business for yourself and just not by yourself.
What made me start selling Avon? I was very skeptical of joining a direct selling company, I thought it would be expensive, time consuming and a money pit where it would take all MY money... boy was I wrong.
I choose AVON based on a few criteria:
  •  $10 to start and I got everything I needed for 2 full campaigns
  •  no start up kit to purchase on top of the start up fee
  •  no inventory to buy, no seasonal items that I need to purchase
  • to keep up to date with stock
  •  and Avon pretty much sells itself so I would not have to spend so much time explaining what it is
  •  no min. order required ( if my order is 99 cents then so be it)
  •  no party's to host so my evenings and weekends are free to do with what I want and what I truly put into Avon is what I get out of it
  •  I can "treat" my customers to discounts and sales over and beyond that of the brochures just because I can.
  •  I get a discount on products I already use and like, now I get them cheaper
Before I signed on the dotted line I asked the rep. a bazillion questions and when I was satisfied I signed up - and what is great is I can back out at any time with no cost to me.

Stacey Smart-Chandler `s Conopeum Art

 
Stacey Smart-Chandler graduated the the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in 2008, with an interdisciplinary degree. He degree gives her a wide background in the arts, so she knows something about all the mediums she is carrying.
 
Stacey has chosen the name Conopeum Art for her shop.
Click here to visit site: http://www.conopeumart.com/.
Conopeum is Latin for “canopy,” and Smart-Chandler says she wanted to choose a name that would encompass more than just art supplies. Not that there is any shortage of those either in the store.
 
The store has just about anything an artist or crafter’s heart could desire. There are fine art supplies, a section devoted specifically to children’s art, crafter’s section, scrap booking, knitting, crochet, bead working, jewelry making and fabrics. That’s just to start off with as well. Smart-Chandler says as people start coming in, she will modify what she is carrying to cater to the community.
 
Part of the store also has a workshop space, to hold classes by herself or by other artists. Rental of the space is charged on a percentage amount, based on the number of participants and the fee charged, rather than just a flat fee. She says she wants to have a space people can use by a wide variety of people.
 
CONOPEUM ART is much more than an art store.
It is time for a visit.
LIVERPOOL for art and artists alike.

New Middle School - construction begins

 




It's begun!

Construction of the
new middle school in  Liverpool, Nova Scotia








The new Middle School is expected to open in September 2013. This 15 million dollar project is being built on the very site of the existing school, right in the heart of the community.
 
There will be a small shift in the students with the opening of the new school as the Grade 9 students will be moved to the High School and the Grade 6 students will move from the Elementary School to the Junior High School.
 
Therefore the new school will take on the the "middle school" concept (grades 6-8) which is a relatively new model for the mid-level grades. Junior high schools were initially created for the purpose of "bridging the gap between the elementary and the high school".

The Queens County Museum is exhibiting “Titanic Remembered”. This exhibit opened to the public on the 100th anniversary of her sinking, April 15.  Liverpool had a small connection with the sinking of the Titanic. Two little Syrian boys, the Yarred brothers, survived and were brought here to Liverpool to stay with the Garratt family until they could be reunited with their family in Florida.  On display are three hankies, authentic Titanic artifacts. Three hankies were scooped out of the water by a crewmember of the MacKay Bennett when she was sent out to the scene to retrieve the bodies. He brought the hankies home to his wife who washed and pressed them, then placed them in the family bible. 
 
Come on in and see them and get the rest of the story . The exhibit will be in place from April 15yh  to the end of September. There is no admission fee to come in and view it.

Ships Started Here - Liverpool NS

During the nineteenth century, Liverpool became a major seaport as the fishing and ship building industries grew. Logs were floated down the Mersey River for export as well as the wooden ship building - a thriving industry into the early 20th century, until the introduction of steel ship making.

Liverpool was seriously effected by this change in technology and virtually slipped into an economic slump.

Now today, although Liverpool is no longer a ship building port it's deep sea port, although small, has an enormous shipyard on its shore - on Corvette Street - and a long forgotten history of shipbuilding. This street was named such due to the number of 'Corvette Ships' that were built here. A corvette is a small, maneuverable, lightly armed warship, usually smaller than a frigate (2000+ tons) yet smaller than a coastal patrol craft. Built during the Age of Sail they usually had a single gun deck that grew into much more as the length of the ship increased. The early role of the corvette was primarily of coastal patrol - protecting the shores, fighting minor wars and supporting large fleets.
