Holland College staff and faculty extend their sincere condolences to all students who may have been affected by the tragic events that occurred in Nova Scotia last weekend, and to their families.
College president Dr. Alexander (Sandy) MacDonald said the college grieves with all those who have lost loved ones.
“We have 170 Nova Scotian students in Holland College programs, all of whom are in our thoughts,” he said. “At an already stressful time, it is hard to imagine the anguish the people who lost family members or friends must be feeling, and not being able to gather together to comfort one another adds another layer of complexity.”
Dr. MacDonald reminds all students that they can access counselling services free of charge 24/7 through the Aspiria Assistance Program at 1-877-234-5327.
