Community Based Learning

Each fall, our school in partnership with the Nova Scotia Highland Village Museum, embark on the Community Based Learning program. Students from our Senior High Classes submit resumes and go through an interview process in the Spring. Students selected from the process are given the opportunity to spend one day a week learning in a community setting. For Rankin students, that setting is the NS Highland Village.

Each week, students work with Highland Village staff to learn new skills, explore their personal strengths and weaknesses and gain purposeful experience working in a local area of employment. Student roles range from interpretation to ground work.

During our successful years, our students had many memorable experiences during their time on the hill and would like to thank everyone involved in the project.

Take a look at our gallery to see some highlights!
