Welcome to Ear Falls Public School

Did you miss our Open House during Kindergarten Registration Week?
Just give us a call to schedule a visit for your family at a time that works for you!

Ear Falls Public School is a Kindergarten to Grade 8 school that serves the communities of Ear Falls and Wabauskang First Nations.

At Ear Falls we believe in hard work, ownership of actions and behaviours, trying our best (taking risks), and that we are a family of learners who are all unique and learn in different ways.

Our students and staff are honest and respectful, resilient, creative, curious and determined. We offer a variety of programming to meet the needs of a diverse student population.

Our Kindergarten program is strength based, meaning our days and lessons are guided by the interests of our students. Bringing their interests into the classroom improves engagement and allows them to explore their passions, something that’s very important to our staff.

Stop in and visit the next time you go by, we’d love to meet you and your family!

Summer Learning Program

Summer Learning programs are offered in Red Lake and are open to Ear Falls students. With a focus on outdoor learning in a fun and active environment, our Summer Learning Program continues to be popular with families. Students in the program will build on their existing literacy and numeracy skills, as well as other important learning skills, while playing fun games and participating in different activities during the three week program. The programs are free to families (healthy snacks and lunches are provided each day) and run by qualified teachers. The Summer Learning Programs offer a great opportunity for students to maintain, or even improve, their literacy and numeracy achievement, and the best part is that the children are having so much fun, they often don’t even realize they are learning!
