School Information and Photos
Royston Elementary School draws students from the rural communities south of Courtenay including Fanny Bay, Union Bay and Royston. Royston Elementary is a kindergarten to grade six school with approximately two hundred and sixty students in 12 divisions in the 2019-2020 school year. It boasts a school garden, a Strongstart program, an onsite before/after school care program, and a highly dedicated staff and parent group committed to learning excellence.
Royston Elementary is also known as "Royston By the Sea" because we are located only a short walking distance away from the ocean (Baynes Sound). It is also known as 'Tle-Tla-Tay in the Island Comox language. The meaning is “herring-raking place” named after a place on Gartley Point, and the traditional spelling is Ih’ét’Iha7t’ay.
This is one of our three Kindergarten Rooms. We support play based learning at our school as students learn best through creative play, exploration and cooperative learning.
Our school operates a StrongStart program open to all caregivers and pre-school aged children on Mondays and Fridays from 8:30 am to 11:30 am. For additional information about StrongStart programs across School District #71 click here: SD71 StrongStart. We also have a privately run onsite before and after school care. Feel free to phone the school for more information.
