For the Community
Stepping Up - A Physical Activity Strategy for the Halifax Region was launched in September, 2009. The HRSB was one of seven partner organizations involved in developing the strategy designed to encourage more physical activity in our region.

Our schools are a key part of the communities they serve. They can be a great place to hold a meeting, host an event, shoot hoops, or play a game of pick-up floor hockey. Halifax Regional Municipality takes care of school rentals within the HRSB. To find out more about the availability and rates, click here.
Students benefit most when organizations and businesses work hand-in-hand with the school board, to improve their education and welfare. A partnership puts books in the children's hands, feeds them a good breakfast and gives them backpacks filled with supplies. To learn more, click here.
