Getting to Great Parent/Student Survey 2016

Welcome to Getting to Great, a survey that allows students, parents/guardians, and teachers throughout the Halifax Regional School Board to share information that will help us improve schools. In the HRSB we are dedicated to providing a high quality education for every student every day. We’re committed to making every school a great school, but we can’t get to great without you. Your voluntary participation in this survey will help us to identify the strengths and challenges at your school, so we can do our part to enhance the opportunities every school holds for students to learn. All survey information is anonymous and is not used to evaluate students.

This survey is for both parents and students. Student survey must be completed on site at an HRSB school.

Host an International Student

The Nova Scotia International Student Program brings students from around the world to Nova Scotia public schools to learn our language and culture. Be an integral part of a student’s learning experience– become a host family.

This is a great opportunity for your family to experience and share culture first hand. Your family will be matched up with a student and they will participate in your daily family routines.

  • Students stay for periods of 2 to 10 months
  • Ongoing support is provided by an experienced Homestay Coordinator
  • You will learn about and communicate with your student before arrival
  • Host Families are asked to provide a private bedroom, 3 balanced meals a day and inclusion in family activities
