Congratulations to Amos Comenius Memorial School (ACMS) in Hopedale, Labrador, which recently received an honourable mention in a national competition for innovation in education. The Ken Spencer Awards for Innovation in Teaching and Learning, an initiative of the EdCan Network, recognized the work of ACMS and teacher Curtis Oliver in challenging students to think criticially in developing virtual reality experiences of the community of Hopedale.

CBC Labrador recently profiled the school and the award through both a news article (April 12, 2019) and an on-air interview with Mr. Oliver and ACMS principal Dean Coombs.

The District is proud of the school's work in leveraging technology to provide students with an opportunity for deeper understanding and comprehension and appreciates the work of students, schools staff, and District IT staff who facilitated the opportunity. As part of the award, the school is receiving a $1,000 grant.
