Supporting our students and our community

We are home to a diverse population of learners, serving kindergarten to grade 5 students. F.W.. Howay has been at the heart of the neighbourhood since it opened in 1961. Our dedicated staff and parents support our students in rich and meaningful ways to engage their passion for learning. Our goal is to create a learning environment that promotes safety, kindness, responsibility and respect where all individuals feel welcome and accepted.
