General Currie Elementary School

A CARING COMMUNITY – LEARNING FOR A LIFETIME

Our School Story

General Currie Elementary is a school of 20 divisions located in the City Centre area of Richmond, BC. What might stand out to you about our school right away is our strong sense of community. You will find students and families gathering on our playground until they run out of daylight and there is a strong representation of many different cultures and ethnities. Some of our families are new to Canada while others have families that have been part of the Richmond community for many generations.

We are the home of the "Currie All Stars" and we pride ourselves on being a kind, respecftul, and inclusive learning environment. We are continuing to emphasize our school social responsibilty focus upon the Three Pillars, where we:

  • Care for Ourselves
  • Care for Others
  • Care for the Environment

We took the opportunity to ask our students, families and staff memebers  - What Makes General Currie a Special Place? We were delighted of the responses we recieved. Here are some examples of what was communicated to us about our community:
