    Was a school for 87 years. It was originally built from Grades 1 to 3. The original building had one entrance for boys and one for girls with respective seperate starcases. These were the two stairs cases found inside the school. An addition was added on the South side of the building and then a while later, the connecting wing and gym was added on the North side of the building. It was closed in 1998 and sat vacant for 11 years before being demolished. It was just 1 of about 25 schools which the school division has closed within the last 30 years.

     Future Plans
    Demolished on February 6, 2009. Site will become green space for the neighboring school across th field with a memorial plaque and park also in the books for 2011, what would have been the school's 100th Anniversary!
