Upcoming Event – WE Walk for Water

On Friday afternoon, April 27th, students from MDJH will be participating in International WE Walk for Water Day – a symbolic walk for our global initiative as a WE school. We will walk around Kenny’s Pond while carrying books in our backpacks to simulate how women and children have to walk for access to clean water everyday. We are asking for a $2 donation to support clean water initiatives and education in Ecuador. Our goal is $1000 and with your help we aspire to reach it. Thank you for your support!

Due to the traffic disruption outlined below, the following routes will be affected:


As of Monday, April 9, 2018 until the end of the school year, student who previously used the bus stop located at Portugal Cove Rd @ McNeilly St will need to board the bus from the either of the following temporary bus stop locations:

·         New Cove Rd @ Cherry Hill Rd

As of Tuesday, April 10, 2018 until the end of the school year, route 17-138A-12A will start its run at 7:16 a.m., 5 minutes earlier than previous. This is to allow enough time to follow the detour. No bus stops will be relocated as part of this change.
