This web page was created by students at Waycobah First Nation Secondary School in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, as part of the @communities.ca project through schoolnet. The Computer Related Studies 12 class were the main organizers of this project, but the whole school particpated in some way. Some students interviewed elders and community people. Other students asked parents and grandparents for stories and old pictures to use.
Our goal in creating this web page was to inform people about the community of Waycobah by recounting stories from our history, telling the stories of our community leaders, and sharing with you a bit of our current culture and language. It is our hope that by navigating through this page you will learn more about our community. We hope you enjoy!
