From Our Blog Back-to-School Tips & Advice


Wow, in less than 2 weeks it is Back-To-School! Parents are smiling, kids are probably pouting, traffic has increased, and buses are stopping at every corner. Proving our Bauld Advisors just can’t stop advising, here are a few tips and reminders to make this school year a great one!

“Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow.” – Anthony J. D’Angelo

Here in HRM, every year traffic spikes the first day of school and stays that way for several months. More cars and rushing drivers lead to more accidents. Make sure you are alert, aware of your surroundings, always check blind spots and drive safely. Oh, and make sure your car insurance is up to date and the slip is in your car.

School Bus safety is really important! Did you know that it is an offense in Nova Scotia to pass a school bus with its red lights flashing? Make sure to stop and give plenty of room and keep our kids safe.

Maybe you have kids heading off to University. Have you thought about protecting their belongings while they are living away? Many Home Insurance policies extend to cover contents belonging to a student at school, however, if they have moved into an apartment with some friends this may not be the case. If so, our Bauld Advisors can help with Tenants Insurance for your daughter or son.

Relax and enjoy this beautiful time of year.
