Halifax West also hosted The Canadian Student Leadership Conference in September 2015, an event that drew hundreds of student participants from across Canada.HistoryHalifax West High School was constructed in 1958 on the Dutch Village Road in the suburban community of Fairview. Originally known as Halifax West Municipal High School during the 1960s, students came by bus from a widespread area including Rockingham, Spryfield, Sheffield, Sambro, Terrance Bay, Peggy's Cove, Head of St. Margaret's Bay and Hubbards.Over the decades, the school building underwent several renovations and the word Municipal was removed from the name.During the late 1990s, teachers and students started to become sick as a result of poor air quality. The building underwent another renovation in an attempt to rid the toxic substances. Still tests yielded poor air quality, specifically in one area of the school where the science and art labs were located. In the 1999–2000 school year, this portion of the school was closed off, and in May of that same school year tests were conducted all around the school on the air quality. The school remained open until the end of the year.
