Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to another year of Getting to Great, Halifax Regional School Board’s continuous school improvement survey. The purpose of this letter is to provide you with some details and information on why completion of this survey is so important to the success of students within our board.
Getting to Great allows all parents/guardians, teachers, and students in grades 4-12 to share information that will help us improve schools. We are on a mission to make every school a great school, but we cannot get to great without you. Your voluntary participation in this survey will help us to identify the strengths and challenges at our school, so we can do our part to enhance the opportunities for students to learn. Your input is valuable in helping us make improvements that will directly impact your child’s learning and school experience.
The online survey is available from March 3- March 31. Please visit the website: http://survey.hrsb.ns.ca select Sackville High to start the survey. You are welcome to complete a survey for each of your children attending our school. Please remember, all survey information is anonymous and is not used to evaluate individuals. At the end of the survey, you will find space to make any additional comments you wish to share with us anonymously.
Thank you for your participation; your input is very important to us!

TEXTILE TECHNOLOGY 12
Open Fulfills one Tech credit

It is an exciting course for those interested in art, craft, and fashion; as well as technology and materials science. The curriculum is designed to encourage students to develop advanced skill sets related to textile arts and technologies. Students will develop a portfolio of work and a final textile project to demonstrate their learning in the following areas:
§ The evolution of the textile arts from ancient hand wovens to contemporary nanotextiles and conductive fibres; and the impacts of factors such as culture, industry, science and geography.
§ Textile development, design and production technologies such as weaving, knitting, felting, dyeing, printing, pattern creation, garment construction, embellishment, applying finishes.
§ Characteristics and applications of various textiles, and how to select appropriately for use in fashion/apparel, household, industry, science and technology.
§ Creating or adapting textile designs, considering end use, efficiency, economy and the environment.
§ Consumer skills for managing a textiles budget.
§ Life-work connections and career opportunities related to the textile industry.
If you are creative, interested in fashion, craft, art, design or working with your hands this course would be great for you!
