New Torbay Area School Name Shortlist


Juniper Ridge Intermediate: Nestled at the base of the Whitty’s Ridge, our school is represented by the Juniper tree. The Juniper signifies a great journey with many twists and turns, and the importance of staying true to oneself while never compromising one’s integrity.

North East Intermediate: Uniting the four communities on the North East Avalon, our school is a lasting testament that our greatest success is realized when we work together.

Spruce Ridge Intermediate: Located on the edge of our rugged coastline, our school is represented by our Provincial Tree, the Black Spruce. This tree stands for nobility, generosity and peace, all values that we promote and encourage.

Water’s Edge Intermediate: Located between Watt’s Pond and the North Atlantic Ocean, and synonymous with our shoreline, Water’s Edge Intermediate unites our communities and promotes a culture of diversity and respect.
