Get involved

We can’t be a community without you!

From the start, the school has operated in the spirit of a cooperative with the gifts and skills of parents influencing every aspect of school life.

The Halifax Independent School Society is a registered charity (#87165 5262 RR0001) organized under the NS Registry of Joint Stock Companies (ID 3020405). The society is governed by a board of directors. 

Committees, events, and more

Some opportunities are task-based and involve short-term commitments and seasons of intense activity. Some involve ongoing meetings and regular reporting to the board. Contact us to learn about our current needs/projects and to tell us about how you would like to help.
