New Germany Elementary School is located in New Germany, Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia, near the headwaters of the LaHave River. We are approximately 125 km southwest of Halifax, the capital city of Nova Scotia. Our school serves 200 students from grades primary to six. Students from our school attend grade 7-12 at New Germany Rural High School, which is "just over the hill" from New Germany Elementary. Our school is part of the South Shore Regional School Board.

New Germany Elementary is a very busy place. Students enjoy extra-curricular activities such as soccer, basketball, softball, and cross country running. We have a dedicated group of parents, teachers and community members who coach our students. Parents and community members are active members of our Home and School Association and School Advisory Council.

The Home and School Association meets on the first Monday of the month. The School Advisory Council meets on the third Tuesday of the month. Both groups are open to any parents or community members who would like to attend. You may contact the the school office (644-5020) for more information on meeting times.

The Green Team is very enthusiastic about reducing the amount of garbage created at the school daily. The program, initiated by two teachers and the daytime custodian, involves over twenty students in recycling and educating the entire student and staff population.
