25 Signs You Went To Halifax West High School

Started from the bottom now we here...literally, because Halifax West High School was originally located at the bottom of Fairview until it moved up to its new location beside the Canada Games Centre off of Lacewood Drive.  The West is one of the biggest High Schools in Halifax and has pride like no other...you would know if you ever went to a sports game against us.

Bringing all the kids from the Burbs together, Halifax West was an experience never to be forgotten. Friends and enemies were made, good times and bad times were had, and it was all a part of our formative high school experience. If you were a Warrior you've probably experienced a couple of the things we listed below during your time in at The West - and if not, I bet you wish you did, because The West is the best.

1. You’ve never called it Halifax West it’s just “The West”.

2. You own a Warriors Against Bullying Pink Day shirt.

3. You know why Mcdonald’s on Lacewood started to close their doors at 11pm on weekends.

4. You thought you were a "cool kid" if you took leadership in grade 12.

5. You’ve gone hard at the football and hockey home openers.

16. You've studied for exams at Mount Saint Vincent University.

17. You parked in staff parking spot because you thought you were being bad a** but then regretted it when school got out and you got stuck in the car line.

18. You’ve seen a Brooksider do a burnout.

19. You’ve had to walk the Power Lines to school.

20. You never used the Public Library even though it’s right there and if you did it was only to buy food at their cafe.

21. "Head for a Cure" was the best event of the year.

22. When you didn’t bring a lunch the student government always had popcorn so you were good.

23. You know who Snook and MacRae are.
