Notre Dame School would like to acknowledge that we are blessed to live, work, and play on Treaty 8 land, the traditional territory of the Cree, Sekani, Dunne-za, Dene-thah, Saulteaux, Chiepwyan, and other Indigenous people who were not specifically identified in the treaty. 


Notre Dame School’s office will reopen the week of August 19th, 9am to 3:30pm. Inquiries can be directed through email at [email protected].

The first day of school is September 4th, with late arrival at 10:30 am and early dismissal at 1:45pm. First full day with students is on September 5th, Thursday. We wish students and families a fun summer break! See you in the fall!

CISPG Schools – Accessibility

All eight CISPG Schools initiated a local School Committee and together completed the 9 page School Physical Accessibility Audit Checklist in June 2023.  Priorities for the physical plant were identified to share with staff in term 1 of the 2023-24 school year.  As per the Ministry guidelines, a CISPG-based Accessibility Committee has been struck and an initial meeting has been held.

Some highlights of priorities in schools for 2023-24 include signage for accessible parking, development of sensory rooms, updated door handles, access by suitable ramps, and even an inclusive/accessible playground.

For more information about the Accessibility Plan, contact Mrs. Colleen Richard, Notre Dame School Principal, at [email protected] or 250-782-4923. For more information and to view the feedback tool and application form: Schools | Catholic Independent Schools (cispg.ca)

Every Child Matters

We are renewing our commitment to the education of ourselves and our students as we recognize and celebrate Indigenous ways of knowing.


 Principal’s Message

Welcome to Notre Dame School!

We at Notre Dame are pleased to contribute to the education of your child(ren).  We aim to provide opportunities for them to grow and develop in all aspects of their lives, especially spiritually, academically, and emotionally.  We strive to prepare students to think critically about the world, finding their way as constructive, creative members of society.  Notre Dame staff feel blessed and privileged to be making a contribution to this inspiring, significant task.

I am fortunate to work alongside a dedicated, caring, and knowledgeable staff within the school and parish and supportive parents and families.  Together, we can make a difference in our children’s lives and spread our gifts throughout the school and local community.

Please read through our website and familiarize yourself with Notre Dame School. If you have any other questions about the school or its programs, please feel free to contact me.

God Bless,

Your partner in education,

Colleen Richard, Principal
