Welcome! Bonjour! Annin!
St. Basil’s School is a family atmosphere and an integral part of the community of White River. Many of our staff, students, and parents find solace in the halls of our school, and it really is a home away from home. We have wonderful relationships with local businesses, and a strong parish involvement in the school. We have many indigenous students and have fostered a strong relationship with elders in our community.
St. Basil’s has up to date technology that the teachers are utilizing in their classrooms to help our students utilize the imagination and creativity they possess.
Our mission models the mission statement of the Board, as we would like to tap the full potential of each of our students while following the good word that the Gospel teaches us. We are a proud Catholic community, who is accepting of all who enters our doors. You can be assured that your child is in a safe and loving environment and that creates a tremendous learning opportunity.

Please remember to call the school each day if your child will be absent or late. Messages that need to be passed along to teachers for your child should be written in their agendas daily.
