SMU writing centre staff were asked to support the establishment of a new writing centre at Millwood High School in Middle Sackville. Millwood’s Library Support Specialist, Kristin Welbourn, and SMU’s Academic Learning Services Director, Brian Hotson, worked toward this goal for over a year. On October 24, twenty-one new Gr. 11 & 12 student peer writing tutors received training and support materials at Millwood by Brian and Senior Tutor, Dr. Adrian Knapp.
Saint Mary’s writing centre is pleased to support academic writing skills and literacy in our community and to continue to mentor Millwood’s new writing centre. Thank you to Principal and SMU alum, Stephen Corkum, for his support and commitment to academic literacies.
