CCRSB would like to extend a huge thank you to the Sexual Health Centre for Cumberland County (SHCCC) for its generous contribution to schools in the Chignecto Family of Schools (Cumberland County)!

In December, SHCCC was chosen to receive funding from 100 Women Who Care Cumberland. The SHCCC decided to use some of those funds to provide elementary schools in Cumberland County with books that celebrate diversity and social inclusion, and support personal autonomy and safety.

With input from Nancy Letcher, CCRSB Education Consultant, three titles were chosen to donate to the schools: 

  • “Sex is a Funny Word:  A book about Bodies, Feelings, and You” by Cory Silverberg and Fiona Smyth
  • “Your Body is Yours!” by The Canadian Red Cross
  • “William’s Doll” by Charlotte Zolotow

Primary to Grade 6 literacy mentors are currently in the process of delivering the books to the 12 elementary schools across the Chignecto Family, where they will be shared and appreciated!
