On Monday 23 November 2015, eight Nova Scotia students who received awards from the Royal Commonwealth Society Essay Competition were hosted at Government House by His Honour, Brigadier General J. J. Grant, Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia. This invitation generated a great deal of excitement and was very much appreciated by both the students and their parents.
This year’s RCS Nova Scotia bus tour, which was co-sponsored by Dalhousie University and Saint Mary’s University, was a great success! The tour took place on Saturday, October 17th, 2015, with fifty students enjoying the opportunity to see Nova Scotia outside of Halifax, touring the scenic South Shore: Peggy’s Cove, Mahone Bay, and Lunenburg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Beautiful weather was had for most of the trip and the autumn leaves were at their peak.
