Educating Our Parents: Understanding the East Hants District Curriculum
CCRSB incorporates the Nova Scotia Curriculum Documents in the content areas of the arts, business, cross-curricular areas, English language arts, entrepreneurship, French Immersion, Core French, Integrated French, Gaelic, health education, languages, math, Personal Development and Career Education, physical education, science, social studies, and technology education. Strategies in the areas of instruction and assessment, classroom curriculum design, and classroom environment help create effective classroom practices.
In addition to the provincial curriculum, the CCRSB Instructional Framework guides instruction in the school district and helps provide administrators, teachers, and everyone else in the district with a common language of instruction. It supports administrators and educators in having discussions about effective teaching, giving and receiving feedback, collecting and using data, and reflecting on teaching practices. It also provides clarity as to the research-based instructional practices to be used, serves as a guide for incorporating the provincial curriculum expectations.

- HERH Students Dance for Mental Health Awareness - Hants East Rural High’s student council event organizer has danced most of her life and decided to create an event that combined dancing with raising money and awareness for a very important issue. Students and staff entered teams of six to 10 and collected donations, with the event culminating into a dance-a-thon in the school cafeteria. During the relay-style event, a representative from the Canadian Mental Health Association spoke with the participants, and all money raised was donated to this cause.
Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: A Lesson on Friendship Using a Mo Willems Book
Acclaimed children’s author Mo Willems’s book Amanda & Her Alligator is a great book to use for an early childhood (ages 3-5) lesson on friendship. The teacher will read the book Amanda & Her Alligator to the class, and after that, he or she may ask the students whether they remember any friends from the book. They may recall Amanda and Alligator, Alligator and Panda, and Amanda and Panda. The class may also discuss the types of activities that the friends in the book do with each other, such as dressing up. Then, the teacher may ask students to think about their best friend and draw a picture of that friend. Students may be asked questions such as what does it means to be a friend, what do they like about their friend, what do they do with their friend (these can be related to the activities the characters in Amanda & Her Alligator do together), and what their friend has done to make them feel good. The class will discuss the pictures they drew as well as their responses to these questions.
