Offering a unique Community Outdoor Recreation & Environment Education (program of choice). Please see CORE tab for further information.

Dewdney Elementary is a great place in which to grow and learn. Our school is located in the country, just east of Mission, British Columbia, Canada. We have approximately 130 students from Kindergarten through Grade 6.

We are proud of our excellent fine and performing arts programs. Students enjoy athletics and intramurals as well as field trips. Literacy and Learning is a primary educational focus for us. We are always greatful for the high level of involvement of our parents. We welcome new and returning families who truly make this an exciting learning community.

Parking Announcement

ATTENTION: Please do not park along the hedges in the school parking lot. The garbage truck is not able to get in when there are vehicles parked there. Going forward ANY vehicles that are parked there will be towed by the FVRD. Thank you for your attention to this matter.


West Coast Recess

Description: C:\Users\admin\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\NYKGAT3L\MC900383318[1].wmfWe encourage outside play for all children…although we understand our “wet coast” weather. Students will have the opportunity to get some fresh air and still stay dry under our large overhangs.  We would ask that you talk to your children about not getting wet and asking to phone home for a change of clothes.  We would encourage students to bring a change of clothes to stay at school if they accidentally get wet.  Some days, the field and grass may be wet but the weather is fine.  Again, we want to encourage play, but please send a change of clothes to school in a bag with their name on it.


Mission International Student Program

The Mission School District International Student Program is currently looking for nurturing host families to provide a welcoming “home away from home” for our visiting elementary and secondary students. We are particularly in need of homes for elementary students. These paid positions are a wonderful opportunity to share your heart and your home as well as our great Canadian culture with young visitors from around the world. Student placements range from 2 weeks to 2 years!

We invite you to complete our On-line Application Form to become a host family and be a part of our exciting International Student program. Please complete all 5 sections of the On-line Application Form and we will be happy to contact you for a follow up home visit.
