School History

During the years Holden School has gained lots of memories! And here's some of them:

During January 1938 the Holden School Division #17 was organized and took over the administration of all rural schools within it's boundries.

In 1940 Holden School opened a dormitory which was the 2nd  in the T.A Store. (It cost $16.00 a month for students.)  The dorm closed on December 1, 1947!

In 1985 the Holden Senior High School moved to Ryley.   The Ryley Junior High School came to Holden School.

September 1999 Holden School became a  E.C.S. - Grade 6 school.  All Senior and Junior High students now go to Ryley.

Principal's Message

Welcome back to Holden School for the 2018/2019 school year!  Welcome to the home of the Huskies and a fantastic community of students and staff. I am looking forward to a great year with many exciting opportunities for your children.

This year we have 136 students from Kindergarten to Grade 6. Our ongoing message at Holden School is Every Student, Every Day, A Success! Together, with the staff and parents of this community, we will work together to make a difference in the lives of our students.  We take pride in every aspect of our school and encourage our students to strive for academic excellence. By providing an environment that is conducive to learning, we offer programs that give all of our students the opportunity to improve, explore, and expand their educational and personal experiences and challenges, with the ultimate goal of sending literate and numerate students into the next century.  

The involvement of parents is crucial to the success of our school. We continue to build lasting relationships with our School (Parent) Council as we work together to make this a positive and meaningful school year. Everyone is challenged, and invited, to get involved at Holden School.
