At least 30 children who fled the Fort McMurray wildfires with their families are now settling into classrooms in Nova Scotia to resume their education.

.

Maryellen MacDonald’s daughters Gabbi, 8, and Olivia, 6, started at H.M. MacDonald Elementary School in Antigonish on Thursday.

.

“It was wonderful to see them come out smiling, playing,” she tells Radio-Canada. “We want them to stay engaged and keep themselves busy, so they don’t have time to think about it.”

.

‘Sense of normalcy’

.

Danny MacDonald, Maryellen’s husband and father of the girls, says only the basement is left of their home in the Beacon Hill neighbourhood of Fort McMurray, but they hope to rebuild.

.

So far, he says it’s a relief to have the girls in school.

.

“It gives them a sense of normalcy,” he says. “That’s the biggest load off my mind.”

.

At least four school boards in Nova Scotia have welcomed Fort McMurray students. Here are the numbers:

.

15  Strait Regional School Board

10  Cape Breton-Victoria School Board

3  Conseil scolaire acadien provincial (CSAP)

2  Chignecto-Central Regional School Board

.

None at Tri-County Regional School Board or South Shore Regional School Board

.

Annapolis Valley Regional School Board doesn’t have numbers yet
Halifax Regional School Board couldn’t say where newly enrolled students are coming from

.

‘Lots of space’

.

The Strait Regional School Board has seen declining enrolment in recent years, as have many Nova Scotia schools, says Paul Landry, the student services manager.

.

“We have lots of space to accommodate new students into the board,” Landry says. “We’re certainly willing to work with them in any instance, whether short term or long term.”
