  • French Immersion Survey

    Parents/guardians, students and school community members are invited to share comments on French Immersion in AVRSB through an online survey in November. The feedback collected through this survey will be considered during a review of the board’s French Immersion policy and administrative procedures over the coming months. Throughout November, go to to complete a survey, or visit a school to access the survey. 

  • Information for Parents and Guardians from the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development

    On Tuesday, October 25, the Nova Scotia Teachers Union (NSTU) voted in favour of a strike. The earliest NSTU members can take any form of job action is December 3, 2016. Potential job actions can range from a province-wide strike to work-to-rule.The government will continue to work with the NSTU and is committed to addressing teacher working and student learning conditions. A new partnership working group, comprised of representatives from the NSTU, school boards and the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, will have their first meeting within the next two weeks to continue to talk about the important issues facing teacher working and student learning conditions. We understand that talk of any labour disruption can result in anxiety and concern for students and their families. Should a job action occur, every effort will be made to minimize disruptions to your child’s education. As the situation evolves, updates will be available through and @nseducation on Twitter.

    Social media has become an important means of communication and of seeking information for most people. It is proving to be of particular importance for our youth as technology has become a significant part of the identity of this generation. Unfortunately, increased technology has also resulted in new social issues. It is sometimes used as a means of cyber-bullying or an exchange of inappropriate information. It is up to us, as adults, to serve as proper role models with regards to technology use. We need to teach our children to respect the use of technology and to be good digital citizens.  In order to do this properly, we as adults must also learn to be good social citizens and to model appropriate use of social media. We must use social media tools like Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram,etc. appropriately, because our children are watching and emulating our behaviours. For more info around proper use of social media and good digital citizenship, please visit our website at:



    All schools in the AVRSB are required to hold 6 fire drills per year and 2 lockdown drills and 1 hold and secure drill.  These are conducted periodically and GVES has thus far has had 2 fire drills. A relocation drill is required once per year as well.
    GVES also has a crisis management committee to oversee any potential crisis that may arise and will follow the "Administrators' Book of Emergency Checklists" if required.  If you have any questions, please direct them to administration.


    Our school is offering you real-time access to your child(ren)'s attendance and report card information through the Internet using the Student-Parent Portal website. To get started, you will need the following information:
