Principal's Message

Port Williams Elementary School is a rural school with a population of 233 students in grades pre-primary to five. It is located near Wolfville, Nova Scotia, home of Acadia University, and not far from Grand Pre. The school was built in 1966, and was extended to include a gymnasium, modern music room, library and additional classrooms in 1984. In 1996 Today's Parent featured PWES as one of five great Canadian schools.

Students' learning is enriched by the support of our Home and School Association, families and the surrounding community.  We are truly grateful to them.  Volunteers are an instrumental part of our school and we would like to extend a sincere thank you for their support of activities in the school and initiatives that extend our learning.
