What is a Community School Centre?

The James Bay Community School Centre is a non profit organization, incorporated in 1977. The Centre’s primary focus is to provide the community of James Bay with affordable programs and services designed to meet the diverse needs of our community.

The facility at 140 Oswego Street is shared by the Elementary School and the Community Centre. The physical connection with the Community School facilitates the integration of programs and services between the Centre and the School. As such, many of our rooms act as school classrooms during the day and venues for recreation and leisure programs during the evenings and weekends. This unique relationship is made possible thanks to a partnership between the Greater Victoria School District, the City of Victoria and the James Bay Community School Society.
