Port Royal Public School's Mission Statement

Port Royal, a Kindergarten to Grade 8 school, opened in 1992. The school is named after Samuel de Champlain's Port Royal Habitation (1605). Today, Port Royal is a Parks Canada National Historic Site in Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia. 

With an enrolment of approximately 450 students, Port Royal has over 30 staff.  Port Royal is home of "The Panthers."  We have earned many sports championships over the years.
Our community partner, the YMCA Childcare, shares space in our school building and provides childcare services for our neighbourhood. The Settlement Worker provides support to our newcomer families.  We also have other community Partnerships though Malvern Community Centre.

School Focus For This School Year

We will continue to improve literacy through our school-wide guided reading and literacy block; develop numeracy and  science though integrated STEM programming; ensure Indigenous Education is part of all learning; improve our understanding of equity education by ensuring anti-oppression and anti-discrimination practices are implemented using Culturally Relevant and Responsive Resources; promote inclusion and identity through lived experiences. 

We strive to elevate student voice in the school. We promote student leadership through Student Council, Eco Schools and Safety Patrollers.

Our goal is to have the vast majority of students achieving at the Provincial standard of Level 3. We will focus our efforts to help move students to achieve at a higher level. Some of the strategies we will use is pre-teaching vocabulary, guided reading and modelled and guided writing.


Our goal is to implement the math curriculum through a school wide long range plan that allows teachers to work together to respond to student need.  We have diversified our resources to enrich our math instruction and integrate financial literacy and STEM in math.


We support our students to determine their learning goals through My Blueprint.  We work with feeder schools and our Guidance Itinerant to support transitions.
