Dr. Arthur Hines School is an elementary school within the Annapolis Valley Regional Centre for Education located in Summerville, Nova Scotia. Summerville is located in Hants County on the picturesque Hants Shore approximately 30 minutes from Windsor and 55 minutes from the capital city of Halifax.

Dr. Arthur Hines School has a faculty of 15 teachers and support staff, and is home to 103 students. We are a Primary to Grade 5 elementary, with a Pre-Primary program for 4 year olds. In addition to our academic programs, we offer students a full range of after school sports programs, a healthy lunch program and a breakfast program.

We operate and maintain a beautiful garden in the northwest portion of our property.
Each year students and teachers select the vegetables, fruits, flowers and herbs that will
be grown. Students, with support of staff, volunteers and members of Hants Shore Health Clinic,
plant the seeds. During the summer, the community helps maintain and weed the garden.

In the fall, we celebrate the harvest by using what we have grown as part of our healthy lunch program and in October we have our harvest Festival, with the help of our grade 5 class. Students prepare work samples that reflect the importance of our garden and work is viewed by community members.
