Students and staff at Labrador Straits Academy are being exposed to a new program, thanks to the work of instructional resource teacher Maisie Groves. Best Buddies Canada is a not-for-profit organization that encourages friendships and inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities. Four schools in the Eastern region are already taking part in the program, but LSA is the first school outside the region to sign on.

Recently, the local newspaper the Northern Pen spoke with school organizers about the program and how it is impacting on the level of inclusion and empathy at LSA.
