Who We Are

​General Vanier is a K - 8 school located in Windsor Park. Our school is named in honour of Georges Vanier who was appointed Governor General by Queen Elizabeth II. The school was built in 1967.


Our mission at General Vanier School is to create an engaging learning environment  focused on collaboration, inclusion and opportunity.


Our vision is to create a community of learners where people …

  • are excited about learning
  • recognize and expand their capabilities
  • celebrate their successes
  • strive for continual academic and personal improvement and excellence
  • learn in a safe, nurturing and respectful environment
  • recognize everyone is unique
  • uphold the values to produce knowledgeable, resourceful and responsible citizens
  • encourage parental involvement in their child’s learning and in the life of the school

Our Motto

Take care of yourself,

Take care of each other,

Take care of your community,

And be kind as you can as you do these things.
