This school first opened its doors for pupils in Castlegar in 1961. This new four room school plus activity room was built primarily to accommodate the children of the employees of the recently completed Celgar Pulp Mill. The 120 students, grades 1 to 5, were very excited to attend this new school. In 1965, two classrooms and a library were added. In subsequent years, kindergarten and individual progress classes were included. The school was closed and sold to a developer and was completely destroyed by fire.
