Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year!


I trust everyone has had a wonderful summer break with lots of rest and opportunities to enjoy numerous activities with family and friends.  This will be my first year as principal of Petite Riviere Elementary School and I am thrilled at the opportunity to work together with you to help our students not only reach, but exceed their educational goals.  Our dedicated staff has been working hard to prepare for another amazing school year, building on the success and accomplishments of last year.

Please feel free to introduce yourself to me in the days and weeks ahead and know that you can always contact me at the school, 902-688-3200.

Warm Regards,

Scott Rawding



What a Wonderful Spring Fair!


The hardworking Home & School Association and friends pulled off another spectacular Spring Fair this year, raising more than $6,000.  The many hours spent planning, organizing, seeking donations; and then bringing it all together for the grand finale is truly appreciated by all of us at PRES. 

The success of our Spring Fair is also due to the combined efforts of parents, staff, students and community members who work together to provide “the extras” for PRES students.  Last, but not least, we could not have done it without the donations we have received from parents, local artists, businesses and organizations.  Thank you for sharing your artwork, donations, time and talents!

The funds raised will be used for the 2016-2017 school year’s extracurricular activities and special events such as art workshops, musical and stage performances, skating trips, class trips, gymnastics, etc. 

The PRES Spring Fair is not only a fantastic fundraiser, but also a celebrated community event.  It was heartwarming to see so many people enjoying the company of their neighbours, the local musical talent and the delicious lobster sandwiches.  

It was so nice to visit with you and hope to see you again next year
