Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lunenberg District Curriculum
The South Shore Regional School Board uses the provincial curriculum which encompasses the content areas of the arts, business, English language arts, entrepreneurship, French Immersion, Core French, Integrated French, Gaelic, health education, languages, math, career education, physical education, science, social studies, and technology education. Students at the high school level have the opportunity to specialize their education in preparation for their post-secondary goals.
The mathematics curriculum provides a foundation of mathematical skills in the early grades which are built upon by the time they graduate. The math facts that are a part of every child’s school life, becomes a building block when they continue to take algebra, geometry, statistics and probability, trigonometry, or calculus. Each of these topics are taught through many methods including the use of technology, applications and modeling. This shows students how to use math throughout their lives when faced with problems.

Lunenberg District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The South Shore Regional School Board, which was established in 2004, oversees education in the 24 schools in this district. The town of Lunenburg is home to Bluenose Academy, which holds just over 500 students in grades K-9. The old Lunenburg Academy stopped providing public education in 2012 and has since been transformed into the Lunenburg Academy of Music Performance. The curriculum used by the district prepares students for the assessments that are given across the province to ensure that as students advance in their studies they are thoroughly prepared to succeed. The elementary curriculum emphasizes literacy so that students are prepared to read across all subject areas throughout their education.
We currently cover the following Lunenberg-area school district: South Shore Regional School Board.
Keeping Informed: Recent Lunenberg Educational News
- Bluenose Academy Class Takes Students Outside - A few years ago, Bluenose Academy introduced a full-year inquiry-based class that covers science, technology, family studies, and art. Teacher Kajtek Jaskowiak’s portion of the class focused on outdoor leadership, and he took his class camping, which not only allowed the students to learn practical skills such as cooking, knot tying, and fire building, but also the “transferable life skills” of confidence, leadership, and teamwork.
- Bus Drivers Recognized for Heroic Act - When a bus driver was stung by a bee on her way home from completing her bus route and went into anaphylactic shock, two bus drivers came to the scene within minutes to assist her until paramedics arrived. Bill Sarty removed her from the bus and performed CPR, while Devin Whynot kept the bus garage updated on her condition via the bus radio. Superintendent of Schools, Geoff Cainen, used this example to demonstrate the importance of how all the district’s bus drivers are required to undergo first aid training.
- Teacher, Students Travel to Belize to Help Children - Teacher Mr. Himmelman and 11 students traveled to Belize to provide opportunities for children in the Maya Centre Village for physical activities and health education to help improve their quality of life. Prior to the trip, Bluenose Academy students and staff joined Mr. Himmelman in leading fundraising efforts.
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.

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: Publishing Students’ Writing
Many students are reluctant writers, but when they know their work will be published for an audience to see, they will be motivated to do their best work. For one or two writing projects a year, the teacher may take students’ work to get laminated and bound. For shorter written work, the teacher may combine all of it into one class book that is bound. Teachers can put the student-created books in their classroom library; students will love to read their own writing and each other’s writing during silent reading times. The reader’s workshop encourages that students’ writing be published in some way. With today’s influx of technology, there are countless ways to publish writing in a digital format. These include publishing websites (such as kidpub.org, which provides samples of students’ published works), Animoto, and even PowerPoint. Digital publishing may motivate students even more, as a wider audience will have access to their work.
