Former schools[edit]

Whycocomagh Consolidated School[edit]

Whycocomagh Consolidated School (WCS) was a grade primary to grade 12 school located in Whycocomagh, Nova Scotia, Canada. It closed in 2000, after Dalbrae Academy was opened as the new high school for the students in the area and a new school was built for grades primary to eight. The school's colours were royal blue and gold, and the high school teams were called Whycocomagh Thunder. The school fell under the jurisdiction of the Strait Regional School Board. The closure of the school came after a long battle with the government.
