Welcome to Champlain Elementary School

Champlain Elementary School is located in the community of Granville Ferry, NS, which is just outside of Annapolis Royal. We serve the town of Annapolis Royal, Parker's Cove and the surrounding areas.

Our school opened in September of 2000, replacing the Annapolis Granville Elementary and Parker's Cove Consolidated Schools, which both closed in June of 2000. We currently have an enrollment of 165 students in grades primary to five, with a staff of around 20, including teachers and support staff.

We welcome you to our website which includes school and community information. Please feel free to contact the school at any time with concerns or questions.

  • Notice: Community-Level Measurement of Developmental Health at School Entry for Primary Students

    As part of an ongoing study about children’s developmental health, school boards across Canada are  collecting anonymized data on primary students. This year, all primary classes in your child’s school and throughout the province will be involved in the study; Nova Scotia participated in this in 2013.

  • CES Students Enjoy Buddy Benches Made by BRHS Tech Ed

    Recently Champlain Elementary had two Buddy Benches built by the students from the Technology Education class of BRHS.  Several of our PALS painted the benches and a few PALS presented skits to the student body to introduce the benches before they were put outside for the students to enjoy.  The intention of the benches is to foster relationship building.  Since they have been outside, they have been a wonderful gathering place for students.
