Home / About / History


Sooke Elementary dates back to 1891 when the first school in Springside area became too small and Mr. William Bell Charters donated land for a new school. Since then the school has had new buildings, been rebuilt, then added to, and more recently renovated. With a rich history and a claim to fame of being the oldest school in B.C situated on the original site, we celebrate our past and look forward to meeting the needs of our students and community in the years to come.


Currently we have 310 children registered in Kindergarten to Grade Five. On behalf of the staff, students, and parents of Sooke Elementary School, we welcome you to our school community.
