Our school has been chosen to take part in Health Canada’s 2016/2017 Canadian Student Tobacco, Alcohol, and Drugs Survey (CSTADS). CSTADS asks students questions about tobacco, alcohol and drug use, bullying, mental health, and school connectedness. In Nova Scotia, the survey will be implemented by Dalhousie University and the University of Waterloo in partnership with the Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness.

On May 15th, 2017, students in Grades 7-12 with parental permission will take part in the survey. The school will receive school-specific results and a $100 honorarium by participating in the survey.
