After many years serving on the Board of Directors for the Landmark East Association, Martha MacQuarrie has decided to resign as she focuses on her run to become the Member of Parliament for Kings-Hants. During her tenure, Martha has served on several committees including governance, executive, and bursary selection. Martha will continue to serve as a Trustee of the Landmark East Foundation.
“Over the past 10 years I have had the honour to serve on the Association of Landmark East School,” says Martha. “I have seen several changes along the way but none so great as the lives of the students who have come through the doors and the profound effect that has had on me. As I move on to pursue my career as the next MP for Kings Hants, Landmark East will always remain close to my heart.”
“We have been honoured to have Martha’s commitment for over ten years and we will miss her knowledge, experience, and invaluable insights,” says Erna Fraser, Chair of the Board of Directors. “She also added just the right touch of humour when it was needed. She will certainly be missed.”
About Landmark East School
Landmark East is an independent co-ed day and boarding school for students with learning differences located in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. The student base is diverse with learners from grades 3-12 who have been diagnosed in a variety of areas such as high-functioning Autism, Dyslexia, and Attention Deficit Disorder that make learning challenging in a traditional school setting. The school is committed to student-centered learning, small class sizes, daily physical activity, community service, and diverse pedagogy. A team of over forty professionals specializing in various roles drive the school’s success and are dedicated to enhancing students’ academic success and self-confidence. Landmark East is a registered charity and actively fundraises year-round to provide student bursaries. On average, half of Landmark East’s Nova Scotia students are subsidized through bursaries. Landmark East is one of three recognized special education schools in Nova Scotia; therefore, Nova Scotia students with a demonstrated need for Landmark East are eligible for the funding they would receive if they attended a public school.
