Dalhousie University has partnered with St Joseph’s-Alexander MacKay elementary school (SJAM) to give the school’s elementary students access to a gymnasium. SJAM is currently using temporary classrooms that do not have access to a gymnasium as they wait for new classrooms and a new playground to be ready. Dal partnered with SJAM so that the school can access the university’s rec facilities, which gives students a place to be active during the school day. “SJAM is a special school and is a place of learning for many African Nova Scotian students, said Dal director of African Nova Scotian Community Engagement Jalana Lewis. “The student body is vibrant and diverse. It’s great that Dal staff, faculty and student athletes came together to welcome their temporary neighbours to the community.” Dal Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
