Name of creator
The Arcadia Consolidated Home and School Association was formed in 1958 to support the operations of the newly-opened Arcadia Consolidated School in Arcadia, Yarmouth County, Nova Scotia. The association raised money for school clubs, equipment, and activities. A president, vice-president, and secretary-treasurer were elected annually. The Arcadia Consolidated Home and School Association affiliated itself with the Nova Scotia Federation of Home and School Associations. This provincial umbrella organization, amongst its many other education and outreach services, provided a model constitution to local home and school associations which identified the associations' key aims as follows: to promote co-operation between teachers, parents and school boards; to encourage the study of educational and child development issues; to ensure that all members of the community derived maximum benefit from the school; and to study and support all progressive measures of local and municipal school boards and of the provincial Department of Education.
Custodial history is unknown.
