We were so happy to open our brand new school back in September. 

Although we were unable to gather our school community and our namesake Thelma Chalifoux’s family in person, we’re pleased to give you a peek inside our school and celebrate its opening. We also wanted to acknowledge and celebrate all our partners who made opening our amazing school possible.

We are excited to think ahead to the day when we’ll be able to share our space in person. Until then, we want to acknowledge our great school with a video that takes you on a virtual tour of our amazing space and shares messages from Board Chair Trisha Estabrooks, Trustee Bridget Stirling and myself.


As a teacher, Metis activist and Canadian Senator, Thelma Chalifoux was a strong believer in supporting her community as well as providing support to the most vulnerable.  At Thelma Chalifoux School, it is our responsibility to create a school environment that reflects her passion and dedication to the communities she served.

Our school offers a 21st century learning environment that provides unique and creative experiences for both students and staff. Opening a new school comes with many exciting opportunities and challenges. Together, we can work to build a positive and supportive learning environment where everyone thrives.

Our Indigenous Liaison Corey Wells has put together a One Stop Location for all sorts of information and resources.  Please have a look regularly as it will be updated as new programs and resources become available!

Principal's Message

I am extremely honoured to be appointed the first principal of Thelma Chalifoux School. It is a great privilege to serve the students, families and school community.

As your Principal, I am committed to providing our students with a safe and welcoming school environment to learn in each day. My goal is to ensure students have the opportunity to explore, create and work to their greatest potential. I want our students to be confident in their own learning and be positive, contributing citizens to our community.

A word that had significant meaning to Thelma Chalifoux was the Cree term, Otipemisiwak, which means “being your own boss.” It is vital for our students to be 21st century learners. This will allow them to become critical thinkers who can collaborate, problem solve and adapt to whatever comes their way. Students who take the initiative to advocate for themselves and others will help bring the term, Otipemisiwak to life at Thelma Chalifoux School.

I am thrilled to open the doors to our new building for the 2020-2021 school year! I look forward to meeting and working with you in the coming months. Together, we can work to set high standards for academics and citizenship for our students, while honouring our namesake.

Tim Boan
