Success Story from Halifax County Learning Network

Krystal achieved her GED in January of 2019.  With a lot of hard work, a little help from the Halifax Community Learning Network (HCLN) and the support of friends, Krystal graduated from Eastern College in November and was chosen as class valedictorian – all while being a wonderful mother and role model to her daughters.
In April Krystal spoke at Literacy Nova Scotia’s Adult Learners’ Week Celebration at Halifax Central Library and was honoured at Province House for her efforts.  Krystal was also the deserving recipient of the second annual Constance Glube Achievement Award presented by  HCLN in November.

ANSCLO hosts Social Media Workshop

On November 29, 2019, ANSCLO hosted a workshop on social media with Linda Daley from Daley Progress. The workshop was held at the Debert Hospitality Centre.

Since 2005 Linda has been working with small businesses and the  not-for-profit sector to enhance their marketing options with the new media. Ms. Daley generously donated her time to support the important work of the ANSCLO membership.

Community Learning Organizations from Digby to Sydney attended, and learned about free or inexpensive ways to get their message out through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, as well as ways to effectively manage the time spent on social media.

14 Members Attend June ANSCLO Meeting

There was a strong turnout at the ANSCLO meeting held on June 11, 2018. A total of 14 directors and members attended. Each member network has the option to have one administrator and one board member admitted to the ANSCLO Board, and currently there are two network board representatives attending regularly.

Shirley Vigneault from Équipe offered use of their network’s computer-based Zoom platform to assist those who wanted to attend the meeting remotely, and nine attendees joined the meeting in this way. MetroWorks offered use of meeting space for those who attended in person.

In addition to sharing information from various networks around the province, there were discussions related to the Nova Scotia School for Adult Learning (NSSAL) “renewal” process, training available to coordinators on Skills Online, network sick leave policies, the recently introduced ANSCLO membership fee as well as the 10th anniversary Annual General Meeting proposed for October.
