Prince Edward School is an early year’s
school in River East Transcona School Division with grades kindergarten to grade 5. The school has been
educating children in the area for 100 years and has historical
and well established traditions that distinguishes us as a special place in the East Kildonan
original school motto, “No deed of mine will ever bring dishonor to this school”
reflects the spirit evidenced by the many multi-generation families continuing
to live in the area that send or have sent their children to Prince Edward.
A tradition of caring and sharing continues to
define our community. Our magnificent red brick building has seen
many structural changes but the one piece that has remained the same is that
core belief in children and their ability to become good
citizens. Witness to this is the many students who have walked our
hallways and gone on to lives that exemplify this tradition. We are a true community school,
offering programs for all ages and welcoming community members into our
building. An important part of Prince Edward School is our House League Program. Each student is placed in each of four coloured house teams. During their stay at Prince Edward they will stay in that particular house team. Points are collected based on the amount each house team participates in school activities. This encourages participation and healthy lifestyle for our students.
Children participating in the
Prince Edward Community learn not only curricular subjects but also skills to equip
themselves to take advantage of life’s opportunities. Prince Edward
School offers these programs: academics, Reading Recovery, Early Numeracy, basic
French (grades 4-5) art, library, music and physical education.
Within our school we also have Little Voyageurs Nursery School and Before and After Programs; Lunch Program; and a Breakfast Program.
Prince Edward School with the support of our community is committed to
providing quality education for all learners through best teaching practices and
appropriate learning opportunities in a supportive, safe and challenging
Prince Edward School operates on a six-day cycle rather than a
Monday to Friday schedule. Teacher in-service days are counted on the cycle;
holidays are not.
