N.S. high school students to get credit for gymnastics, music, skating programs

Wednesday, May 1, 2013 - 2pm

The Nova Scotia government has approved eight new organizations to the Personal Development Credit, which allows high school students to earn either a half or full credit for their involvement in activities outside school.

Halifax gymnast Stephen Clouter admits it’s difficult to balance gymnastics and high school. The 16-year-old spends a total of 20 hours training each week.

“So I do Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, for four hours,” he says of his training routine.

The province launched the Personal Development Credit last fall with four approved providers, and invited organizations that wanted to be included in the credit to submit applications by Jan. 31.
