Samuel Burland School
Thank you for visiting our website. Samuel Burland School is a Kindergarten -Grade 8 school located in the suburb of St. Vital in the city of Winnipeg. We are part of the Louis Riel School Division. We have a proud tradition of excellence in the areas of: academics, leadership, social justice, music and sport. Our 415 students, 47 staff and families who are currently an integral Samuel Burland believe in actively supporting the vision and mission. Burland C.A.R.E.S.
Our school mascot is the Bulldog! Characteristics of the bulldog include their legendary patience, and calm demeanour. In daily experiences of demonstrating how we care for each other, Burland students grow to develop: citizenship, attitude, respect, responsibility, empathy. These are attributes which are necessary in the workplace and in being an active member of society.
We want to welcome all new families to the community. We will be open the week of August 22, 2013 to accept new catchment area registrants. Those with English as an Additional Language, we ask that you register at the Rene Delurme Center (511 St. Anne's Road) for your welcome orientation (If you are in our catchment, you will still attend our school in the Fall).

Community Needs Remain Top Priority in LRSD
Addressing Enrolment Challenges in South St. Vital
On January 7th, the Louis Riel School Board approved the recommendations for George McDowell School to become a single-track French Immersion Middle Years (Grades 6-8) school, and for École St. Germain and École Julie-Riel to become grades K-5 schools (formerly K-8).
The parents of students currently attending George McDowell School will have options for their children to attend one of a number of neighbouring schools – Dr. D.W. Penner School, H.S. Paul School, Highbury School and possibly Samuel Burland School.
