Tatamagouche & Area Notebook, By Ellen Millard

Computer help offered at Tatamagouche Library

In the absence of the school principal, Bryan Holmes and Brad Smith conducted the monthly assembly at Tatamagouche Elementary School last Friday. The event began with separate classes taking the stage to recite on such topics as the Land of Many Colours, the Carmel Toy Guns, the Blue People, the Red People, Star Wars, the Pink with Cotton Candy and the Big Doll.

Legion members presented Student of the Month awards, as chosen by classroom teachers. Award winners for improvement were as follows:

• Primary, for improvement in Literacy Confidence, Layne Duggan

• Grade 1, for all areas, Sawyer Donaldson

• Grade 2, for Speaking, Olivia Matheson

• Grade 3, for Reading and Comprehension, Logan Nicholson

• Grade 4, for Writing, Caity Hiltz

• Grade 5/6 Keigan Allen

• Grade 6, for Classroom Leadership, Angus Delorey

Every month students’ names are placed in a container and two are drawn to receive a pizza. In this draw the lucky students were Keigan Baker and Karen Tattrie. The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 64, the Ladies Auxiliary and Ocean Lanes Bowling Lanes donate the pizza for the student draw.

Next week will be the annual Winter Carnival at the school and many fun events are planned each day. The students and teachers will be taking part in Pajama Day, skating at NCHS, Wacky Hair Day, Disco in the Gym, dinky and remote car day, snow sculpture and coasting (if there’s enough snow), dress-up day and the final event, a talent show.

Should students choose not to participate in some of the outdoor events, there will also be activities going on in the gym for them.

Sounds like the Tatamagouche Elementary School will be a fun place for all during Carnival Week.


Those of us who grew up before the days of computers may be interested in learning how to use them to do much more than just to send and receive emails. The Tatamagouche branch of the Colchester East Hants Library now has two technicians, Alex and Emily, to improve your knowledge and assist you in the use of your computer.

Under the program, called Tech Tuesdays, Alex and Emily are offering three sessions: Intro to Email, Intro to Facebook and Learning to Buy and Sell on Kijiji. They’re also willing to help with other computer-related questions.

You can contact them at the Tatamagouche library, 902- 657-3064. They can be found at the Library on Tuesdays from 2:30 to 5 p.m., and again from 6 until 8 p.m. On Wednesdays they’re available from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
