"A learning community in the Catholic tradition where students are encouraged to reach their potential."

Welcome to Our Lady of Victory School

OLV is the only Kindergarten to Grade 8 multiage Catholic school in Manitoba that provides an affordably, quality education to children from all religious backgrounds. Staff, student, and parents work together to promote an environment in which each student can achieve their potential and become positive roles models. We are committed to maintaining a safe environment that fosters creativity, responsibility, and the development of relationships that are essential to growth and a strong sense of self-worth.
