SMGRC High School Yearbook collection
Collection · 2011-
The collection is comprised of yearbooks from St. Mary’s Rural High (1953-1989); St. Mary’s Academy (1999-2013); and St. Mary’s Education Centre/Academy (2013-2018). St. Mary’s Rural High School was opened in September of 1953, to educate students from Grades 7 to 12 from all areas of the Municipality of the District of St. Mary’s in Guysborough County, Nova Scotia. Prior to its opening, students from over thirty communities attended several rural Primary to Grade 12 schools. The official opening was held on November 14, 1953, by the Honorable Henry D. Hicks, Minister of Education. An addition was built in 1969, and included a new library, business education section, music room, home economics department, and three new classrooms; in 1970, a new drafting room was added to the Industrial Arts Complex and in 1972, a new language lab was built. A new high school was built in 1989, and the first high school became St. Mary’s Elementary School (Primary to Grade 6). Grades 7 to 12 moved into the new building next door. At that time, the six former elementary schools across the municipality closed, and all students were bussed to Sherbrooke. In 1999, the name of the high school was changed to St. Mary’s Academy and the elementary school was renamed St. Mary’s Education Centre The Grade 7 students remained in the Education Centre, with Grades 8 to 12 in the Academy. In 2012, the two schools were amalgamated as St. Mary’s Education Centre/Academy. Following the construction of a new wing on the newer school, in 2013 all students were moved into one Primary to Grade 12 facility. The original building was later demolished.
