Kirkness School is an elementary school serving the communities of Kirkness and Hairsine. The school community is rich with a diversity of cultures. Many of our families speak languages other than English in their homes. Numerous parents strengthen our programming by assisting at the school, on fieldtrips and in helping to organize special events. Kirkness School recognizes the importance of the home/school partnership and actively fosters this relationship. The school facility is in good condition and is available five days a week for community use. (Boys and Girls Club, Beavers, Cubs and Scouts and a variety of sports teams).
