We are within walking distance to Pius X Catholic Church, the community arena, the public library, the wildlife rescue centre, Anderson Farm Museum, the ski hill, etc. Our beautiful school yard is adjacent to the picturesque Anderson Farm and community park. Our school boundaries extend from Lively to Naughton and the Atikameksheng Anishnawbek – Whitefish Lake First Nation.

Teachers and administration work hard as a team to provide child every possible opportunity to learn and succeed in a safe and loving environment.
