General Information

Our Lady of Peace School was founded in 1968. At that time, it was an open area school. For a few years, the school went from Kindergarten to Secondary 2. Our small school community is located in the Fabreville area, North West of Laval, between autoroute 15 and 13. Our school population is presently 180 students. Traditionally, our students continue to be successful after graduating from elementary school.


Parent Participation

Our Lady Of Peace Governing Board meets 6-7 times a year, members are parents, teachers, support personnel and if available, a non-teaching professional representative. The "Parents for Children" group is a very active group of volunteer parents in our school community planning and organizing fundraisers, walk-a-thons, book fairs and a variety of activities for children at Halloween, Christmas and in June. This year, parents organized a very successful "Literacy" program where volunteers came to the school to read with children both in English and French.
