Holy Family School opened in 1968 and at the time, could accommodate grades 1 to 6, with kindergarten being offered beginning in 1974. Mr. Frank Fircola was the first principal.

When it was built, the school sat all alone on the prairie. North of what is now Memorial Drive were farm houses and occasionally, cattle would wander into the school's playground. It wasn't uncommon to see people riding horses through the fields and there were rare visits from wildlife such as badgers and a lynx.

The school was built in the era of open classrooms, and grades 2, 3, and 4 classes were all taught in what is now the library and the computer room. The school has always been small but at one time the population was as low as 72 students and all the students were taught in combined grades. Currently, our school serves about 200 students and remains a very family oriented neighbourhood school.
