One of the division’s longest established schools, Namao School takes pride in its heritage in the community. The school has been on the same site since 1885 and provides education for students from Headstart to Grade 9.
Namao School’s main focus is on student learning, and its motto “Taking Pride in Learning” is reflected not only in academic success but also in performing arts, athletic programs, character development and community service. Our excellent, award-winning music program includes an elementary choir and four school bands. In addition, students in junior high have access to a wide range of options from fine arts to outdoor education to sports mastery. We are a green school that promotes conservation and the environment through school wide recycling and composting programs.
The school maintains its tradition of excellence with a strong school council and community support. Together, we have built two new playgrounds and an outdoor learning space. We also serve students with specific needs and are committed to fostering outstanding student learning within a safe and caring learning environment.
