About Our School-
Our school is located in Middle Musquodoboit overlooking the beautiful Musquodoboit River. The name ‘Musquodoboit’ originates from Mi’kmaq meaning ‘rolling out in foam’. Europeans first settled in the Musquodoboit Valley around 1783 – 1800. ‘The Valley’ has always had deep connections to natural resources such as agriculture, mining and forestry. It is comprised of many small communities situated along the Musquodoboit River stretching from Dean to Meagher’s Grant. The total area is approximately 175,000 acres with a population of approximately 5000 residents. ‘The Valley’ is located in the heart of Nova Scotia. Historically people lived on small family farms and were self sufficient. Economics have had an impact on the natural resources sector consequently 'the Valley' has witnessed the consolidation of agricultural and forestry based operations.
