Hamiota Student Council

This organization helps out with many school and community activities.  Their goal is to raise money to be put toward school programs which allows the school to function at its best.

Major fundraisers each year are the fowl supper and magazine campaign, plus many ‘school spirit’ days to keep the students involved.  Contact the Collegiate for details.


The Nursery school is located in the Village United Early Learning Centre on 4th Street. The teacher encourages children to attend this specialized learning centre where children learn to socialize and interact with other children of the same age.  This education stresses formal learning with fun.  The format includes art and crafts, playtime (sharing), music, reading, listening, puzzles, play dough, hygiene, and table manners during snack time.  In addition to active activities (outdoors, weather permitting) the children enjoy “Circle Time”, where they participate in a number of low organized games.  Bulletins and a news board keep parents informed of development progress.  Parents are welcome to visit anytime.

Children can attend the school once or twice a week for a 1/2 day, in the morning.
