 Posted in the main foyer and outside room 209 are lists of students who have pre-ordered a yearbook.

Please check the list for your name to ensure
you have pre-ordered.

 Your last opportunity to purchase a yearbook will be the week April 22nd to April 25th at lunch in the main foyer, or online at http://jostensyearbooks.com/?REF=A09719583. 

The cost is $35. 

 You must pre-order now to receive a yearbook in June.

We have some exciting news to share! During the month of March and April there will be some work being done at the school to upgrade much of our interior lighting with new energy efficient lighting.  This work is part of the Halifax Regional School Board's Energy Management project which will see approximately 90 schools receive upgrades over the next four years to make them more energy efficient.  We are pleased to support these upgrades because money that is saved in energy costs can be reinvested in the classroom.

The work to our school should be completed by end of the April. 
These are much needed improvements for our school.

If you have any concerns don't hesitate to contact the school.

 Extra Help Schedule: Click here

Extra help times are subject to change depending on Meetings or Special Circumstances.  Each Student should confirm with the teacher to make sure extra help will be offered on that day.

These are posted times. However, each teacher may be available upon request to meet at different times based on the student making an appointment.


School Cancellation

 There may be circumstances when school is cancelled during the day due to severe weather, power outages or where there is a situation deemed unsafe for our students to be present.

 This decision will be communicated to all schools as close to 11:00 a.m. as possible.

Prince Andrew High School is part of the Prince Andrew Family of Schools.  Usually, weather related cancellations will be announced on the radio according to “Family of Schools’, not the individual school.  Therefore, if you hear announced that the Prince Andrew Family of School is closed then Prince Andrew High School is closed. 

The Halifax Regional School Board takes great care when making the decision to alter the normal operations of schools in the event of severe or inclement weather.  Decisions on school closures and/or bus cancellations are posted on the board’s website at www.hrsb.ns.ca, on Twitter at www.twitter.com/HRSB_Official, recorded on 464-INFO (4636) and communicated to all local radios stations.  You can also receive notice of school and bus cancellations by e-mail or text message by following the link on the front page (left side) of the HRSB website.  If you interested in learning more on how decisions regarding closures and cancellations are made, visit http://www.hrsb.ns.ca/content/id/1137.html.



Our school uses a video surveillance system as part of our continued efforts to support a safe, positive and effective learning environment.  We recognize that the images recorded by this video surveillance system are personal information and, as with all other personal information, we take steps to balance privacy rights with safety and security concerns.  The school has the legal authority to collect this personal information under Section 24 of Nova Scotia’s Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.

Only designated staff has access to our video surveillance equipment and such access is restricted as required by law.  The system is used to enhance school safety and to deter or take action in response to unlawful behaviors.

If you have any questions about video surveillance at our school, please contact the principal, Greg MacKinnon.



You're not alone.  Support and resources are available to help  www. novascotia.ca



The Canadian MedicAlert® Foundation is a charitable organization which is the leading provider of emergency medical information services linked to customized medical bracelets and necklaces.

The financial support of the Government of Canada and Lions Clubs allows students to receive the MedicAlert membership for FREE.  Please visit the No Child Without website for further information.
