New Catholic Elementary School coming to the Findlay Creek Community – Proposed Boundary Changes

We are opening a new Catholic elementary school in Findlay Creek! The school will serve Junior Kindergarten to Grade 6 students and is located at 4140 Kelly Farm Drive. The new school will offer French Immersion programming. Extended Day Programs for before and after-school care have been proposed in addition to a potential Pre-School Childcare Centre. This new school is currently scheduled to open for the 2024-2025 school year.

Proposed boundary changes

On Tuesday, October 11, 2022, The OCSB Board of Trustees approved the public consultation process for the Proposed Findlay Creek Catholic Elementary school attendance boundary.  The proposed attendance boundary for the new school affects the existing boundaries for St. Bernard, St. Thomas More and St. Mary schools.

There are no proposed changes to the High School Boundary. Grade 6 students attending the new elementary school will be directed to St. Francis Xavier High School as designated in the current attendance boundary.

A summarized version of the proposed changes can be found in the slides from our Public Consultation meeting held on December 8, 2022.

Full details of the proposed changes can be found in our New Findlay Creek Elementary School Proposed Attendance Boundary Consultation Document.

Share your thoughts

We would love to hear from our parent community. Please take a moment to share your thoughts. The deadline to share feedback is Tuesday, February 14, 2023.

What’s Next

We will hold a public consultation session for the schools affected by the boundary change in-person or online. We will take some time to hear from the effected school communities and share some thoughts on the process. Following the completion of the public consultation, our Planning and Facilities team will submit a recommendation report to our Board of Trustees for a final decision.
